Our stay at Tambuti lodge was special and memorable. We have the most beautiful game drives in the morning and evening with many incredible sightings. The food was amazing, we throughly enjoyed, the chef went above and beyond to accommodate us on foods we can and can't eat. The hosting was also really good and very attentive. The room was a treat and had the best sleep. They organized us a special night with private dinning and ran us a bath and made up the room. Was a special experience.

From booking to departure, the staff of Tambuti Lodge couldn't have been more helpful or attentive to ensuring we enjoyed our stay. The lodge is extremely well-maintained and clean with spacious rooms that are well-kitted out both with good decor and facilities incl. Wi-Fi. The meals, all prepared to a very high standard with great attention to both creativity in presentation and variety. Our game drives had some brilliant sightings with awesome views of spectacular sunsets and our guide was knowledgeable, patient and very good humoured! Thank you all to Maritza, Chane, Jacques, Marsha, Riaan and Katlego (KG) and the staff behind the scenes who help you all attain the very high bar you have set for yourselves! It was a very special Birthday for my mom and we really appreciated all the effort you went to, concern for her well-being and that nothing was too much trouble! I would have no reservations in recommending Tambuti Lodge and hope to find my way back there in the future!

All round a fantastic experience. The room was clean and spacious, with a personal lapa. The food was exceptional and the staff a pleasure to be around. The hostess treated us like old friends and the guide topped it off with his extensive knowledge of the bush and his great sense of humor. Not to mention the special treatment we received for our birthdays. Definitely making this a regular occurrence.

I booked the evening away for my husband’s birthday. I wanted to spend my time away with my husband alone. From the time we arrived the Staff were amazing. We had a fantastic game drive and our Game Ranger was great. When we arrived we were escorted to our room. The staff had prepared a table just for the two of us. They had also run a bath for me and lit candles in the bathroom. When we received dinner the ladies came in and sang to my husband. We had a complimentary bottle of champagne and the dinner was amazing. It was the most wonderful experience that we have had. The Staff at this Lodge go out of their way to accommodate you and make you feel welcome. Thank you to everyone involved in making our trip a memorable one.

We had a wonderful stay at Tambuti lodge. The staff were beyond attentive and helpful, the food delicious and plentiful, and the accommodation luxurious, with many delightful touches. The game drives were fantastic, and Jacques, our guide, was a font of knowledge with a cracking sense of humour. Thank you again
