Tambuzi Baobab Camp is a rustic yet comfortable retreat in the Maseke Game Reserve. The reserve stretches over 8 000 hectares in the Greater Kruger area, and shares open borders with neighbouring reserves and the Kruger National Park. Wildlife abounds around Tambuzi, but the camp itself is fenced, making it ideal for families with smaller children.
Accommodation is offered in a choice of a centrally located garden cottage or dome style tents along the perimeter. Decor throughout the camp is fresh and modern, and there elements of quirkiness in terms of shabby chic, rustic art pieces.
A baobab tree (hence the camp name) in the middle of the lawn towers over the fever trees, while a handful of mopanis also offer some shade. Elephants frequent the little stream that trickles past the perimeter fence, providing ample opportunity to spot these pachyderms from a safe distance.
Tambuzi Baobab Camp is located in the Maseke Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger, a reserve situated between Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa in the Limpopo Province. The undulating landscape is home to the big five and a wealth of predators, birdlife and other big game. Prominent mountainous ridges and boulder koppies characterise the terrain, making it an interesting region to explore while out on game drive.
