Tamboti Tented Camp is situated along the banks of the Timbavati River, centrally located approximately 2 km from Orpen Main Rest Camp.
A great feature is a boma, which makes it ideal for small groups of people to gather around the campfires and relive the animal sightings of the day. For the birding enthusiasts, Tamboti offers a bird hide in which to spend hours looking for that exclusive raptor that has up to now eluded you. The natural bush feeling is kept inside the camp, which has the result of emphasizing guest privacy.
