The small intimate Thabamati Luxury Tented Camp is situated in the world-renowned Timbavati Private Nature Reserve in the Greater Kruger National Park.

Thabamati Luxury Tented Camp is a venture by the dedicated team of conservation-minded people running Shindzela Tented Camp. Both camps are owned by the same family and are situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve that forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Thabamati, meaning “mountain and water”, became a reality in 2019. The camp consists of 4 luxurious and spacious en-suite safari-style tents, each overlooking a beautiful dam with amazing views of the Drakensberg Mountains beyond. The elegant intimate tented camp accommodates only 8 guests, which is an added attraction.

The camp is eco-friendly, utilizing only solar power and gas, however still offering modern day luxuries. This means that you can enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer with a green conscience.​

Upon your arrival, you will be met by our dynamic and experienced team who will see to it that all your needs are met. So relax and enjoy your safari vacation, knowing that you are in good hands.

The luxury Java safari-style tent is situated next to a dam and is built in such a way that each has a view of the water.  All tents are an an open-plan concept furnished with a writing desk, seating area, bedroom, en-suite bathroom with a private WC.  Luxurious free standing bath, inside and outside shower, all with views overlooking the dam.  Amenities with the scents of Africa are provided for your enjoyment.

Thabamati offers two safari game drives per day – one in the morning and one late afternoon/early evening.  We make use of one spacious modified game viewer seating 8 guests comfortably (4 rows of 2 individual seats).

They also offer a short morning bushwalk after breakfast, focusing more on smaller animals and vegetation that one does not necessarily observe in detail during game drives. In order to participate in the morning bushwalk, guests need to be physically capable to walk for about 1 hour without any assistance and need to understand and speak English.

Why we like it

  • Very small and intimate.
  • Outstanding wildlife viewing with very little traffic from other camps.
  • Eco-friendly camp with full solar and water recycling systems.
