We had a comfortable & great experience! Nkambeni Safari camp is situated WITHIN the Kruger National Park(KNP) - a concession camp within the borders of the KNP. You have to enter at Numbi gate which is a 3-4km drive in the KNP, from Nkambeni. Staff is very friendly & helpful! Tents are comfortable & clean with aircon, an indoor shower and outdoor shower, small deck looking into the veld. Breakfast is served from 30min prior opening of KNP gates which is great if you want to hit the Kruger early, but you can also have breakfast later if you are having a sleep-in! Wifi in common area, not your tent. Bar in common area. Waterhole with hippos right next to the camp, which you can enjoy from the lawn/lookout deck/pool. We experianced great animal sounds at night. If there is a power failure in the area, no fear, they have a big generator. National railway not far, which might be a bit of a sound disturbance at night. Tents might be a bit close to each other, BUT Good value for money. I would return with my family.

I had a wonderful stay at the Nkambeni Safari Camp on the edge of the Kruger National Park. The reception was warmly welcome and the staff were all very friendly. The tents were beautiful and very comfortable, even in the cold weather, as I was able to use the air conditioner. The only drawback was the thin walls made it impossible not to listen to everyone else.

Very beautiful tented accommodation, so close to Numbi gate easy access to the Kruger. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are awesome - Would suggest that if you are staying for longer than a couple of days, collect some forms from the Numbi gate and fill them in the night before going to the gate will save you loads of time.

We enjoyed our time at Nkambeni. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The venue is truly lovely in terms of being close to nature - the hippos on the other side of the boundary fence was a true highlight of the space. Thank you for a truly enjoyable stay!

Improve on the room setup. show the guests where they are going especially if its after dark. offer services to carry their bags even if its an extra fee especially considering that som of the rooms are so far from the parking. Have picnic packages
