About Tamboti Tented Camp Kruger National Park SANParks

ACTIVITIES CAN NOW BE BOOKED! Choose an activity under Room Types when requesting your quote!

Tamboti Tented Camp is a small camp situated on the banks of the Timbavati River, on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park, approximately 2 km east of Orpen Rest Camp. Due to the size and location of this camp, Tamboti is one of the most popular camps in the Park.

A great feature is the boma, which makes it ideal for small groups of people to gather around the camp fire and relive the animal sightings of the day. For the birding enthusiasts, Tamboti offers a bird hide in which to spend hours looking for that exclusive raptor that has up to now eluded you. The natural bush feeling is kept inside the camp, which has the result of emphasizing guest privacy.

Please note that the rates are subject to the number of adults and children staying. Rates include 1% Community Levy, but exclude daily conservation fees. These are to be paid directly to camp on arrival.

PLEASE NOTE: from 1 September 2017, all visitors over 18 years old will be required to produce their identity document (ID), passport or alternative valid identification e.g. driver’s licence card for scanning upon entering/exiting the Park.

Raiding by baboons was a huge problem. Also found the ablution and also the cooking facilities to be far from our tent, creating practical problems for food preparation.

We were staying in Tent 16. Our visibility over the river from our tent was very poor due to overgrown trees/bushes in front of the tent. When visiting Tamboti the highlight during the stay is majorly the view.

Beautiful clean camp. Just remember eating utensils and cooking pots.

We loved our stay at Tamboti. It´s a simple but enchanting place with a beautiful scenery and spectacular night sounds. We´ll be back one day but don´t go there if you are into luxury accommodation.
