Top class all round. Can't speak highly enough of this place. Staff, meals, drives, rooms. Everything was out of out of this world and we will certainly be back. No need to look further than this in Pilansburg.

What an amazing experience we had at this beautiful lodge. The staff was super friendly and the service was outstanding! Our room was spacious and clean and the evenings around the camp fire, listening to the sound of the bush was food for my soul. Talking about food, every meal outdone the previous one with a taste explosion! Viewing the animals on the morning and late afternoon game drives was a delight and Martin was very knowledgeable, as we learned a few interesting facts. Definitely worth a visit!

I can’t recommend Tambuti lodge enough, it is truly a spectacular lodge that checks every box on the list of requirements for a relaxing, decadent and comfortable bush experience. From the moment you walk in the door you are met by an exceptional host and welcoming staff ready to wait on you hand and foot while you sit back, relax and take in the spectacular surroundings. Each day included two game drives, each with a little stop where you’re treated to some snacks, wine or coffee and in a spectacular setting. The guides exceptional knowledge of the bush and animals add a level of enjoyment that just elevates our game drive to a level you didn’t know to expect. Every meal is an occasion and presented with care and a little personal touch that creates a truly curated experience. After an evening of delicious food and wine around the fire you have a comfortable and spacious suite to retire to where you have a little private patio and amazing bath to soak in looking out into the bush surrounding the lodge.

Absolutely fantastic! Great service with friendly staff. Facilities really catered to a relaxed atmosphere with ample space between you & the next guest. AND THE FOOD was delicious - may be a lot but rather too much, than not enough. Would recommend this lodge, any day!

We had the most amazing weekend with friends for thier elopment at Tambuti. The team was amazing, Jacques was the best and most knowledgeable guide I have ever met and he was really a highlight of the trip on the game drives. The whole team was friendly, helpful and lovely. We stayed in the Zebra room and it was brilliant, the decor, the bed and bathroom everything was top notch! We will defo's be back again (once I have lost some weight from eating ALL your delicious food)
