Myself and my partner stayed here for 5 nights. We had such an amazing time- we honestly couldn't fault it! The lodges are very beautifully decorated- it's the perfect mix of rustic safari experience whilst still having all your home comforts but doesn't look like a luxury hotel resort. Staff were excellent. Nadia was very welcoming and helpful whilst we...

Truly memorable and wouldn't of changed any of it. I train people on how to give great customer service in the retail sector and this camp and...

Although a small camp - just 5 tree lodges - the staff were helpful, friendly and very professional. Two game drives per day were well run and we saw rhino, leopard, elephants, giraffe, hippo, hyena up close and personal! So much more than we expected.

We spent in Nthambo camp 2 days and nights. It has been a really great experience. Very small camp and so familiar environment, very friendly staff, always available to answer question or just chat. Lovely place to relax and the room was also good (not always hot water). The rangers did an hard job during the safari games rides and...

Second visit to this lovely fun camp. Great to be in a tree house, but with all the comforts of a hotel room. Great food, helpful friendly staff. Great game drives, especially the night drives, so many lions.

Outstanding in all ways. Incredible wildlife. Maybe we were lucky or had the right guide in AK, but we saw so much more than we had hoped. The facilities and food was outstanding. We sat at lunch and saw zebras, baboons, warthogs and an elephant visit the watering hole.

We booked here on the recommendation of a neighbouring camp and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived the check-in was warm and friendly, the accommodation was exquisite, the food was a delight and the star of the show was Andre Kruger, our highly personable and knowledgeable guide. We saw all of the Big 5 including 2 leopard...

We had the best time at NThambo. From the accommodation to the food to the game drives and most importantly the staff it was the best experience! We saw more animals than we were ever expecting to and so appreciate that despite the fact AK, Isaak and Ryan have been doing this a long time they are still so passionate...

Well, when you see the lounge and the acommodatation you know you are in Africa, it was amazingly authentic. Met at the door and welcomed by lovely people including Vim the owner who set us on a wonderful adventure, great staff, great food and a surround so quiet that you could hear a pin drop - unless you were chasing...
