The nThambo Tree Camp facilities include a main area which houses a comfortable lounge area under thatch. The dining room has a large table where, as per safari tradition, everyone dines together to enjoy each other's company and share stories of the day's game sightings.
There is also a boma area with camp fire, perfect for warming you up with your coffee before the morning walk, or for enjoying evening drinks around the fire. In addition guests will experience a traditional South African braaivleis cooked over the open fire.
To truly immerse yourself in the rustic bush experience, the main area is lit with lanterns while plug points in the chalets can be used to charge your camera batteries.
There is also WiFi available in the lounge and bar area.
During the hot summer months guests can relax around the splash pool - don't be surprised if there is a herd of elephants trying to drink from the pool !
In the dining area there is a small "library" where guests can browse through books and magazines.
Everything was just perfect all along the 3 nights we spent at nThambo Tree camp. The quality of accommodation (pretty and convenient rooms, sun-deck and Wifi in the common area), the home-made food simple but delicious and the staff nice and competent. The place is in the middle of nowhere and we had the chance to approach the big five and many more thanks to our excellent ranger! I can't wait to come back at nThambo Tree Camp, our stay was definitely too short.
Everyone at nThambo was amazing. I don't have a single complaint. In fact this was the highlight of our 3 week trip in Africa. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the food was delicious, fresh, and healthy, and the staff were friendly, helpful and made everyone feel at home
We had a delightful stay here and cannot sing enough praises for the managers. Our reservations had been messed up by an agency but everything was settled very graciously and we were made to feel welcome. The animal sighting safaris were tremendous and we benefitted a lot from the knowledgeable guide and tracker. The treehouse accommodations are charming and felt very luxurious. The meals and snacks were great and we enjoyed the camaraderie with other guests. We also were glad to learn that much care is taken to make the ecological footprints here miniscule.
