The Nthambo location is top, the accomodation fantastic and the whole staff made our stay a unique and unforgettable experience!! The total package of accomodation, food, drinks and last but not least the game drives in an open jeep is just incredible.

Of 10 Lodges we visited in SA this was definitely our favourite! Staff, drives, the "Tents", joint meals with all other guests - everything was just perfect. We consider ourselves very lucky with all the animals we saw in this area. Thanks to the whole team at nThambo.

I travelled here with my mum and stayed for three nights. What can i say... this place is amazing! We saw so many animals on safari more than we had hopes for and the rangers issack and ryan were just fantastic. They are so polite and always went the extra mile to make sure that everyone had a great time....

My daughter and I stayed for three nights and had a wonderful experience. The accommodation was amazing, a tree house, with mod cons! The food was freshly cooked and delicious. Ryan and Isaac were fantastic rangers and couldn't have looked after us any better. Would highly recommend this trip, deborah and katie battams
