The 6 suites at the lodge are stunning, each with their own decor and style. The honeymoon suite is to die for and the luxury safari tent amazing. Two log cabins are situated next to the dams. All the suites have TV and coffee making facilities for the late-nighter / early bird.

A morning at Tamboti Bush Lodge starts with music - the sounds of hundreds of birds welcoming you to the Bushveld. And then the day just gets better.

Have an amazing breakfast in the restaurant open to the sounds and sights of the bush. Do not be surprised if a jackal or an impala pops up in front of you. Laze around the pool or go on a game drive.

Tamboti Bush lodge is the perfect place to relax and just revive your spirits. The staff is great - helpful and friendly and the Hosts make you feel welcome and at home from the time you arrive until you depart. Definitely will be returning and this time for a longer stay in the near future.

The Bush Willow is a beautiful house, but it needs a touch up, a fresh coat of paint, the pool and the fence around it needs some looking after. The tennis court is dilapidated. It would have been even more special to be able to wake up to a good swing in the morning.

My advice, please let the guests know about the pool-table (while checking in instead of arriving at the guest house 1st and find a note that says balls and cues can be found at reception for a fee, because then the guests have to drive back to reception. It is not far, but it could save a bit of time.

Otherwise everything else was fantastic. The hosts, Derrick & Pixie are just too sweet. They are very warm and friendly people, perfect hosts at the lodge. Oh! and thank you Pixie for those awesome home made rusks and coffee we had in the bush, that was a personal touch of note. Jay is a fantastic receptionist and Samson is a helpful groundsman.

My friends and I had a great time at Tamboti Lodge.

Really enjoyed our stay. The log cabin was very neat and tidy but could only do with a small bar fridge. Service in the restaurant was top class and all staff was very friendly.
