Thabamati Luxury Tented Camp

Lodge style A tented affair

Embrace the heart of Timbavati

Experience the enchanting allure of Thabamati Luxury Tented Camp, nestled within the wild beauty of Timbavati Private Nature Reserve in South Africa. Since its establishment in 2019, Thabamati, translating to "mountain and water," has been offering an unmatched, authentic safari experience. With only four luxury safari-style tents, this intimate camp ensures personalized attention to its eight privileged guests, adding a touch of exclusivity to your wilderness escape.

Luxury tented accommodation

At Thabamati, the magic starts with the accommodations. Each Java safari-style tent is strategically placed by a dam, ensuring uninterrupted vistas of the water and the majestic Drakensberg Mountains beyond. The open-plan design incorporates a seating area, a bedroom, and a writing desk, providing a luxurious space for relaxation and reflection.

The luxury extends into the en-suite bathrooms, each featuring a free-standing bath, private WC, and both inside and outside showers overlooking the dam. The scents of Africa permeate the room through carefully chosen amenities, enriching the sensory experience of your stay.

Activities at Thabamati Tented Camp

Stepping outside the intimate comforts of the tented accommodations, Thabamati offers a range of safari activities designed to immerse guests in the vibrant African wilderness. Two game drives are organized daily - one in the morning and another in the late afternoon - offering guests the thrill of encountering the Big Five.

Guided by passionate and knowledgeable field guides, guests also have the opportunity to participate in short morning bushwalks, focusing on the smaller wonders of the ecosystem and vegetation that go unnoticed during game drives.

In essence, Thabamati Luxury Tented Camp offers a harmonious blend of opulent accommodation, intimate interaction with nature, and a palette of exhilarating safari activities. This gem of Timbavati is a haven for those who seek an authentic, insightful, and deeply personal African safari experience.

TripAdvisor reviews Thabamati Camp

The main lodge and 4 tented lodges are situated on a water dam which allowed for constant viewing of animals coming and going. We saw hippos, buffalo, elephant and many birds right from the deck of the lodge or our rooms.
