Located in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, nThambo Tree Camp is a rustic, eco-friendly camp offering a nature-orientated experience with cosy ‘tree-house’ style tented accommodation. The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve covers 60,000 Ha, which forms part of the Greater Kruger and shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park. Here, game viewing is in abundance with regular sightings of leopard, lion, hyena, elephant and buffalo.
The camp offers game drives twice a day in an open 4x4 vehicle, as well as the option of walking safaris with a highly qualified guide and experienced Shangaan tracker.
The accommodation is designed to be of minimal impact to nature, consisting of five canvas-walled chalets with thatched roofs on raised platforms. Although simple, each chalet has an en-suite shower room and a private veranda with magical views of the surrounding bushveld and Drakensberg mountain range.
Under a thatch roof, the communal outdoor dining area and lounge offers the same superb views. Other facilities include a lovely open-air boma with a fire, a bar and a splash pool where elephants often visit to drink.
