I had spent a complimentary night at nThambo during one of my camp-a-day site inspection trips. I'm in the business and need to see properties for myself before I use them for my clients. nThambo made such an impression on me that I wanted to come back with my wife on our own safari - as paying guests this time! It was even better than I remembered. Ranger Kevin and Tracker Isaack are a strong team and the game drives with them made clear that the Klaserie Reserve is sometimes underestimated as a wildlife destination. We saw 4 of the Big 5 on just one game drive - and every game drive had its highlights.
The tents make nThambo unique. By positioning them up on sturdy platforms, owner Courteney Blunden has added the unusual feature of a viewing deck to the luxury tent experience. Further, they have high thatched roofs which give them a sense of spaciousness you wouldn't have in a conventional tent. Meals are good, served either out in the boma around the fire or in the main lodge and guests do all sit together. I would say, considering the quality of the experience you have for the rates you pay, this is a true value-for-money destination.More
