          Tamboti tented camp is located in the wild-heart of Kruger National Park. Very beautiful and peaceful place to enjoy your wildlife sleepover while touring Kruger National Park.

          We enjoyed our stay in one of the tented camps with our 2 children aged 11 and 12 and our game ranger guide Etienne. Facilities are simple but spotlessly clean and we ate under beautiful skies, enjoying good game during the day. Definitely going back.

          This tented camp is set along the banks of the Timbavati riverbed, and has a very authentic "bush" feel compared to many of the more built-up camps in Kruger. If you're lucky (and stay up late enough), you may just get a glimpse of the...More

          We've booked a few days at Tamboti Camp at one of the standard tends (not the ones with private ablutions, which I sadly didn't know about beforehand) and are looking forward to being in the bush. I'm just not sure what all to bring in terms of cooking equipment and crockery. Is there anything there, or do we need to bring it all with us (pots, pans, glasses, cutlery, crockery, etc.)? Also, do we need to bring our own bedding and / or towels? In the pics it looks like those are supplied, but I'd like to make sure! Thanks - all advice appreciated.
