The intimate Tamboti Villa, nestled under a grove of Tamboti trees, officially opened its doors in March 2021.
Set away from the main area of the Waterside Lodge, the spectacular newly built Villa boasts a generous main living area with an inviting plunge pool and interactive kitchen.
Four lavish en-suite rooms, connected by interleading passages, make the Villa the perfect safari-type get away for small groups or families.
The game viewing is exceptional within the camp, especially during dry season when the permanent waterhole attracts herds of elephants and buffalo. The birdlife is impressive here too, which adds a further element of entertainment when spending a quiet afternoon on the deck.
Tamboti Villa is the perfect place to relax and unwind, while enjoying the diversity of wildlife right from your deck.
