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.
The Ross Pride lionesses are making an appearance almost daily on game drives. Here is a clip of the 2 females seen on game drive with Luan recently. Image by Em Gatland. http://youtu.be/s-4dJTZy6Rc?list=UUdMuQ1v4MRXTIdbqqw27bRA

How many people have watched a snake killing and feeding on its prey in the wild? At one of our related camps in Botswana's Linyanti region - Camp Linyanti - Kevin MacLaughlin filmed this African rock python constricting and swallowing its mongoose prey. All in an afternoon's game drive! Enjoy and happy #wildlifewednesday http://youtu.be/hNgfCJkA0Lg?list=PLzb0VX34oCV0ucwVGXDbfFdnQccygtmn9
Gorgeous pictures of the Ross Pride lionesses with the 2 cubs taken last month by Luan Oosthuizen. Sadly, since then one cub has died and the mother sustained an injury that she seems to have recovered from. One little cub remains and both lionesses are looking good! It's tough out there, but these breakaway females are strong!
Stunning images of African wild dogs seen in the Klaserie, plus a video clip of their latest visit, enjoyed by guests and guides alike. Sadly, the 2nd most endangered predator in Africa.
