nThambo Tree Camp is the sister camp to Africa on Foot and offers affordable, luxury accommodation in your choice of five wooden tented cabins on stilts. Located eye-level with the trees, it’s ideally situated to game watch from the comfort of your verandah.

The camp is not fenced off and you will hear animals grazing nearby. Don’t be surprised to see elephants drinking from the splash pool in front of camp.

The camp prides itself on being eco-friendly – nThambo uses a grey water system, solar power and has an in-house recycling program.

Rooms & Suites:

nThambo Tree Camp has only 5 chalets that sleep 2 people each, which creates an intimate and personal safari experience.

The accommodation is unique with bedrooms at eye-level with the trees, offering a different perspective from the private balconies.

Food & Wine:

Guests will experience a traditional South African braaivleis cooked over the open fire. 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.


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.


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 five 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.
