Experience a Kruger Safari at nThambo Tree Camp and stay in unique accommodation in the heart of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve. The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve 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 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.
