nThambo Tree Camp
nThambo Tree Camp is an intimate hidden gem in the Klaserie area on the western edge of the Greater Kruger reserve. Experience the Big Five, along with hyena, hippo, giraffe, zebra, antelope, and more strolling through the unfenced camp.
If it’s exploring and adventure you seek, the camp offers morning, afternoon, and night game drives, as well as bush walks, all led by trained guides and Shangaan trackers. Enthusiastic birders can look forward to hundreds of bird species like shrikes, lilac-breasted rollers, blue waxbills, and magnificent raptors such as bateleur, martial eagles, and dark chanting goshawks that dominate the sky.
At the camp, casual bush luxury meets the authentic rugged experience of Africa. Modern comforts such as electricity, wifi, and plunge pools are juxtaposed against typical African features: a boma fireplace surrounded by a wooden kraal, and baboons, warthogs, and lions assembling at the waterhole in front of the camp.
The camp’s five chalets stand high on wooden stilts, at eye-level with the trees. Dreamy private balconies look out over the waterhole and the stunning sprawling views. At night, stories can be shared around the open fire where guests are treated to traditional South African “braaivleis”, completing the totally African experience.
The camp is accessible three ways. For guests who enjoy life at a leisurely pace, a self-drive option along tar roads is highly recommended. The drive from Johannesburg takes 6 hours and is well worth the scenery. Flying in from Johannesburg or Cape Town to Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport is both quick and easy. The camp’s host will collect guests from the airport and drive them the remainder of the journey. Road transfers are another option available to Nthambo guests. The Ashton’s Transfer takes guests up to the Bush Pub & Grill from where the host will drive to camp.
