About nThambo Tree Camp
Experience a Kruger Safari at nThambo Tree Camp. The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve is part of the Greater Kruger and shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park. It is here that guests can take part in Big Five game drive safaris.
On game drive safaris guests will be led by experienced and professional game rangers through a wildlife area rich in game including lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo as well as hyena, hippo, giraffe, zebra and a whole host of other wildlife. In addition to game drives, bush walks and night drives are offered allowing guests to participate in a full spectrum of safari activities.
nThambo Tree Camp has five "tree house" chalets that sleep two guests each. All chalets have mosquito nets, as well as a solar-powered fans and solar-powered light. The camp can therefore accommodate a maximum of ten guests, ensuring a personal and private safari experience. The chalets are raised on wooden stilts, the floor is wooden decking, the walls are canvas tent, with a thatched roof completing one of the most unique safari accommodation options in the Kruger. In addition, each chalet has a verandah which overlooks the plain in front of camp with views of the Drakensberg mountain range in the distance. All the chalets are reasonably spaced out from each other ensuring privacy for all guests.
Each chalet has the option of being made up with a double bed (for happy couples), or as a twin share (for friends or family traveling together). None of the chalets can accommodate three people sharing. The maximum number in each chalet is two people. Rack wardrobes with coathanger space and shelves for clothing, in addition to a a writing desk are included.
All chalets are en-suite with a shower and toilet. None of the chalets have baths, only showers. Lighting is provided via solar power and a plug point in each chalet is available for guests to charge their camera batteries.
The 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, main area is lit with lanterns while plug points in the chalets can be used to charge your camera batteries.
nThambo Tree Camp is located in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve which forms part of the Greater Kruger Park. The reserve shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park and is west of the Timbavati, covering 60 000 ha on either side of the Klaserie River. As there are no fences wildlife roams free between the major reserves that form the Greater Kruger Park, which include the Klaserie, Timbavati, Manyeleti, Sabi Sands and the Kruger National Park.
The Klaserie is the least commercially developed of all the Kruger Private Game Reserves and as such offers a truly rustic, remote and pristine wildlife experience. This makes it perfect for private safaris!
