Everything from start to finish was fantastic. Couldn't have asked for better. Seeing the big 5 in 2 drives was also pretty epic.

We really enjoyed our stay at Tambuti - the accommodation was spacious and well done out and the food was excellent! The staff were great and Bert who did all our game drives was very knowledgeable - we would definitely go back!
Deirdre Fraser Aug 2014
We had a fabulous time! Our game drives were amazing. Our guide Burt took great pains to get a sighting of a leopard on the last day. It was totally tailored to our needs. We had great fun watching the animals and learning about them.
The accommodation and meals were all 5 star! Kudos to Maritza and her team. Amazing food and presentation. The hospitality was great. When we left , we felt like we were leaving home. A truly memorable experience for a first time on safari. We hope to be back some day!
