Experience a Kruger Safari at nThambo Tree Camp and stay in unique accommodation in the heart of the Klaserie. 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.
nThambo Tree Camp has 5 treehouse-style, solar-powered chalets, each sleeping a maximum of 2 guests, ensuring a personal and private safari experience. The chalets are raised on wooden stilts and the floor is made from wooden decking. The walls are canvas and the roof is thatched; completing one of the most unique safari accommodation options in the Kruger.
In addition, each chalet has a veranda, which overlooks the endless plains in front of the camp with views of the Drakensberg mountain range in the distance. Each chalet has the option of being made up with a double bed or as a twin share.
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.

Lounge and Dining Area
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 pool and deck with sun loungers and umbrellas completes the main area and offers a refreshing spot to relax all year round.
A traditional boma area with fire place captures the traditional bush camp safari experience. Open to the sky and surrounded by a wooden kraal, the boma is where the warm evenings are spent sharing stories of the bush.
The dining room, which has a large table and a wine rack, and is located next to the open-air boma fireplace, perfect for evening drinks around the fire.
Guests will experience a traditional South African braaivleis cooked over the open fire.
In the mornings and evenings, guests are taken on game drive. The animals are habituated to the vehicle, which means that they are used to the vehicle approaching them and know that it never causes them harm. This enables to you to get within 5 to 10 metres of the larger predators; even while they’re feasting on a recent kill.
The night drives allow guests the opportunity to see the nocturnal animals not encountered during the day. Your chances of seeing leopard in particular are a lot higher at night and with a bit of luck you might even encounter the predators such as lion and leopard hunting. During the night drives, your tracker uses a powerful spotlight to search for nocturnal animals.
The waterhole in front of camp attracts a number of species during the day and night, so regular sightings of warthog, baboons, elephants, even lions and leopards in front of camp can be enjoyed.
- Children: 12 – 18 years pay 100% of the sharing rate
