When you walk down this entrance to Tamboti Bush Lodge you already sense that this is no ordinary lodge in the bush, you get to feel the love and attention that owners Derrick and Pixie Cochran have given to their lodge. Tamboti Bush Lodge is in the middle of the Dinokeng Game Reserve. The only big 5 game reserve in Gauteng. The area is malaria free and is only one hours drive from Johannesburg. The N1 Highway takes you to just 6 kms from the game reserve gates and 10 kms from Tamboti Bush Lodge.
Tamboti Bush lodge is nestled in a grove of Tamboti trees Do some tree spotting, many of the trees are already marked and you can identify over 80 indigenous trees and over 200 species of birds around the lodge and in the veld. The 6 suites at the lodge are stunning, each with their own décor and style. The honeymoon suites are to die for, there two log cabins overlooking the dams with a lot of great birdlife. All the suites have a TV and coffee making facilities for the late-nighter / early bird.
