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.

The idea behind two camps with completely different styles arose during years of travelling to various destinations in Africa – separate products, both offering a unique and authentic taste of what it means to stay in a safari tent amid the sights and sounds of the African bush.

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 highlight is probably observing the wildlife, including the Big Five and numerous bird species, in their natural surroundings during our game drives and optional daily short bush-walks.

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.
