nThambo Tree Camp has five chalets that sleep two people each which creates an intimate and personal safari experience. There is an outdoor lounge and dining area, under thatch, that offers guests beautiful views of the plain and small waterhole in front of camp, as well as the Drakensberg mountain range in the distance. A traditional boma completes a camp that captures the traditional bush camp safari experience.
In Room Facilities:
Each chalet has the option of being made up with a double bed (ideal for honeymoon couples), or as a twin share (for friends or family traveling together). The maximum number in each chalet is two people. Rack wardrobes with coat hanger space and shelves for clothing, in addition to a writing desk, are just a few of the furnishings found in each chalet.
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.
nThambo Tree Camp is in the heart of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve. 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.
The nThambo Tree 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, the main area is lit with lanterns while plug points in the chalets can be used to charge your camera batteries.
There is also WiFi available in the lounge and bar area.
During the hot summer months guests can relax around the splash pool - don't be surprised if there is a herd of elephants trying to drink from the pool !
In the dining area there is a small "library" where guests can browse through books and magazines.
