Tamboti Satellite Camp
is located in the Kruger Central
area of Kruger National Park
in the Northeast
region of South Africa
Set on the southern bank of the Timbavati River just beyond the Orpen Gate entry into the park, this place is a satellite to the main Orpen Restcamp. Although ostensibly a simpler facility designed to proved a more authentic experience, it is actually the larger of the two, with 40 tented rooms with space for up to 140 guests. Walking safari and night vehicle safari can be booked at reception.
Tamboti Satellite Camp is aimed primarily at domestic self-drive traffic and budget bus tours. Even for these people there seems little reason to overnight here, unless perhaps all the accommodation further into the park is fully booked. Not somewhere that we tend to recommend to our guests.
