Multiple thanks for the great stay! The place is really terrific ! Christine Tork Romania
An absolutely fabulous time!! Thank you for wonderful hospitality Derrick!!! The tree tent is definitely the way to go!!!
By coincidence we ended up at Tamboti Bush Lodge after a long drive from Bethal and desperately in need of a place to stay for 1 night. We ended up staying 5 days in the wonderful Thutlwa suite; enjoying the peace and quiet, the gardens, the friendly talks and the drive for Kudu & Zebra. Thank you for having us! Thank you for lovely and tasty food and excellent service! If you are ever in Denmark please contact us!

Good morning Rynette & Derrick,
Sorry for taking so long but the JHB buzz is hectic!! Just want to thank you for a wonderful weekend, we loved every minute of it and will definitely be coming back.
Tamboti is truly beautiful.
I feel really bad because we left in such a hurry that I completely forgot to give the staff a thank you tip but can you send me their names and I will send them a gift! I remember Sam but I am not sure about the two ladies in the Restaurant. Please thank them for the wonderful service from us and I hope you know how great they are. Kind, helpful staff like them are really hard to find! I have attached some photo’s of the weekend……
THANK YOU once again!!
