Experience a Kruger Safari at nThambo Tree Camp and stay in unique accommodation in the heart of the Southern Klaserie. The Southern Klaserie is part of the Greater Kruger and shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park. It is here that guests can take part in Big Five game drive safaris.
On game drive guests will be led by experienced and professional game rangers through a wildlife area rich in game. There is the chance to see all of the Big 5 in and around camp at any time, so guides will escort guests to and from their rooms at night.
The Southern Klaserie also boasts a plethora of interesting birdlife and is a haven for bird-watchers. All 5 chalets are positioned on stilts at level with the trees so game watching can be enjoyed constantly. The small size and privacy of nThambo means that activities are flexible and exciting night drives can also be conducted.
South Africa is a beautiful country to see and a self-drive option is recommended for guests who have the time and interest for a more diverse experience. The drive from Johannesburg takes about 6 hours according to directions that will be provided for you. The roads are good and safe, while the scenery in the Mpumalanga/Limpopo region is spectacular.
Flying from Johannesburg or Cape Town to Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport is the quickest and easiest option for getting to nThambo. Hoedspruit receives guests travelling to the Greater Kruger every day. Your host from nThambo will meet you at the airport and drive you through the Timbavati Gate and then into the Klaserie and to nThambo Tree Camp.
Road transfers are another option for guests travelling to nThambo. The Ashton’s Transfer takes guests to the Bush Pub & Grill just outside the Timbavati Gate, which is where nThambo will meet their guests and drive them the last 30 minutes to the camp.
Sightings this week in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve proved to be an interesting mix of big cats, crocodiles and babies. Enjoy your weekend and the week in pictures ! http://www.sundestinations.co.za/blog/week-in-pictures-big-cats-crocodiles-and-babies/
Fantastic buffalo sighting at one of the local watering holes this morning! One big herd, including a couple of little ones, visited the dam for a drink in the morning sun offering up some fantastic photo opportunities. We've also got a short clip of the sighting on our YouTube playlist where you will find all of our nThambo wildlife moments... in case you've missed them here. https://youtu.be/VoSJqYwv7Bw?list=PLzb0VX34oCV1ItgruaJB9mzsIwa4Xikzk
We predicted that the Trilogy boys would not be far from the Ross Pride females. We were right. The Trilogy boys were spotted on Saturday. Unfortunately, we don't have pics! However, we do have these incredible photos of a lone Ross Pride female, who was spotted close to the Trilogy. Come on Klaserie lions, we need a few cubs ! #Lions #TheTrilogy #AfricasHiddenSecrets
Guests were lucky this week - they got to see the Ross Pride lionesses. Look at how majestic, regal and serene these cats look. With so many females in the area, we suspect the Trilogy males are not far away. We've had no luck with the cheetah tracks we saw the other day - hopefully this elusive cat is still in the area. These are just a few highlights from the past week. #nThambo #SunDestinations #AfricasHiddenSecrets
Happy Wednesday everyone. Just to let you know, cheetah tracks were spotted around camp during the course of the day. Here's hoping guests get to see the elusive cheetah. Stay tuned ! We hope you are flying through your week... #tawnyeagle #safari #AfricasHiddenSecrets #SunDestinations
