As far as I can remember it is not too far from the ablutions. I haven't a clue whether it is on stilts or not. I think most of the tents have a few steps to climb. Some worse than others.

You don't hava a lot of choice Yahya.


We do a day trip to Satara and the S100, a dead loss to us on the last few trips, but the river road (S39?) to Timbavati often is productive.

Agree with BB, the S100 has been dead our last couple of visits, S39 good option and don't neglect the S36, has the ability to produce something really special.

I have had very good luck on the Sweni Road - S126. Having said that, I've also driven it and seen nothing!

From Satara we usually do one trip along S100, stop for a while at N'wanetsi, go along the tar road to the H1-3, turn south for a few kms and then right along the S126 - ending up at Muzandzeni for another leg-stretch. Obviously it is further from Tamboti, but probably doable with an early start.

Another nice drive from Tamboti is to take the S140 from near the Rabelais Hut, past Talamati and wiggle along the S145 to the S36.

I agree the Timbavati River Road S39 can be spectacular - even just the scenery makes it worth doing.

We are visiting Tamboti for the first time on 20-23 June. We'll be staying in a luxury tent (LST3), and I tried to request unit 40. Unfortunately it is already taken... They have now allocated the tent next door, # 39 to us. Does anybody know what it is like and how its view is?

#39 isn't quite so nice as #40, but it is definitely my 2nd choice and I'm sure that you'll be happy with it. Enjoy Tamboti! :mrgreen:

Thanks Arks! Well, as long as it would be your second choice - that's good! Can't have nr 40, so just wanted to check if there was any other second choice, other than 39. But then happy we got it!

Next question: I've read a lot on this forum about the baboons coming to steal food at Tamboti... :naughty: What would you advise to secure one's food? Are there proper "baboon-proof" cupboards? Do you need to take specific boxes? :hmz:

Hi Bushbuddies,

Just go back a little on this forum for advice.

They have a steel "cage" outside each chalet to put your stuff in -- NB the monkeys still put their hands through the bars and eat your avos, fruit etc. quite easily! So even there, it needs to be INSIDE something. The other option is to leave a lot of your food in the trailer/boot.

I usually leave food inside the tent in a cupboard where it is NOT visible from outside, and we make sure the gauze is closed as well...
Enjoy!

I got stung badly by wasps that hide behind the sightings board -- they pop out as soon as you want to put a pin on the board and zap you!

Maye we'll bump into each other there one day!

God bless,

Friedrich von Hörsten
