We spent three nights at Tambuti, a wonderful experience. Tambuti is an intimate lodge offering great accommodation, food and service. The room & bathroom were very spacious. Ample cupboard space - not many coathangers, but I had brought my own so didn't ask for more. The bar fridge is on the covered, outside patio - great that its motor isn't a disturbance while sleeping. Fridge remained well stocked with water & drinks. All the rooms have their own separate entrances & are linked to the main lodge building by covered, paved walkways. There is covered parking for vehicles. The lodge staff struck a perfect balance between being attentive, but without one feeling suffocated or irritated. Malcolm & Stinneke were fantastic hosts, as was Jacques, our excellent ranger. It rained heavily before we arrived and Jacques had his work cut out trying to find animals in the wet and long grass of particularly Pilanesburg. Despite the weather, we saw some special and fantastic sightings, including a close-up of a leopard up a tree. Jacques' knowledge of birds and bird calls is very good and when he realised his guests were keen birders, he pulled out all the stops. Riaan, Edith & their team in the kitchen produced excellent, creative, tasty fine-dining meals. They were able to accommodate our low-carb diet without any trouble or effort. The lodge follows all necessary Covid protocols & precautions, both in the lodge & on the game drives. We look forward to a return visit!…
We cannot rate this lodge highly enough. Excellent food, fabulous service, spacious well appointed air conditioned rooms, devine outside shower was a nice bonus. Game drives were great. One doesn’t always see the big 5 but we were fortunate enough to see most of them. All round a 5/5. Thank you.
Spent three nights with my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Tambuti lodge was excellent in all aspects, from the clean and spacious rooms, to the meals and most importantly the stand out staff! Everyone at the lodge is attentive and extremely hospitable. The sightings are good and the guides were very knowledgeable. We would love to be back soon!
A fantastic birthday weekend!! Thank you to Malcolm, Jacques and Riaan for going out of their way to make it an unforgettable experience. Amazing meals, luxurious picture perfect rooms, in the middle of the bush. Game drives were very comfortable and informative-Jacques your passion, wealth of knowledge and experience is inspiring. What more could we have asked for! We will definitely be back!
Great place with excellent food, and awesome staff. Good game drives in a beautiful environment with knowledgeable expert. Lots of nice little touches that make it special - e.g. set out dinner in our room for our anniversary
