Oh how I live tamboti, reading the HB stories made me laugh. We stopped in tent 36 in 2011 and got visited at 4am by the HB. Was amazing as we had never seen one before. I just opened the top of the door and stood and watched.

Going back again in 7 weeks and can't wait. My third time in Kruger, hoping this will be the time that I see some dogs!

Hi guys,

I have a CTT2 tent booked at Tamboti in November. Just wondering if anyone could advise on the best number in terms of views from the tent and proximity to the ablution block. Many thanks!

Hi KirstyL

I cant remember if it was 7/8 that I stayed at earlier this year, it had a great view and was close the Ablution block. One was a ctt2 and one was a ctt4 but both were great!

The dogs do their run down the H7 in the evenings usually just before the gates close between the s106 and orpen gate.

Lovely part of the park

Our choice is no 24, near ablution block and after the floods a open view to the river. Yes the dogs is one of the 1st things one love to see, but personally , the male pride around the H 7 is one for the bucket list.

Thank you for that, the H7 is now marked off in my book.

I think I may be slightly obsessed. I got my tick guide book out and was looking at various roads etc and I lost count the number of times I had written dogs next to a particular route!

Will be at Tamboti for 2 days so will be doing a bit more of stake out in the hopes of spotting them. I heard them the last time we were there, but it was dark and the gates were closed by then!

Lou

So, will be in Tamboti for the first time.

Its only for 1 night (hopefully about 3 next year) but for now; How cold does it get at night and early morning? We will be there in the first week of September.

we always go in September, and have experience every single kind of weather imaginable, so may, Do the tents offer any insulation at all is probably a better question?

Hi Leaping Lizards.

Tambotie is on a river bed, so it can be a few degrees colder than elsewhere at night.

I have experienced extreme cold once. I think it was in August. They do supply extra blankets, but if you are sensitive to cold make sure that you have something really warm to put on. I am sensitive to cold, so I tend to be very careful.

Most times I have found a warm jersey enough.

Leaping Lizards, we stayed in Tamboti over July 2013, it was cold BUT we used 2 blankets on the bed and we wore warm pyjamas and at night sitting outside I had to wear a jacket as well as a hat because I don't like having cold ears. The tent was chilly but it was insulated against the wind, just be prepared for cold and warm weather

End of this month we will be staying for a couple of nights in Tamboti.
We made a reservation for the luxury tents.
Want to do a couple of times a braai.
Normaly utensils should be available but don't know if we should bring some extra stuff?

Thanks MM and Tent Dweller.

We have stayed in the Spekboom Campsite in Addo in July, and survived. I am sure we will be ok, but will take with warm PJs and socks just in case.

Hi boriskat1 and welcome to the forums.

As you say, you will have most of the utensils you need provided, but I always take a good sharp knife, a plastic jug and a plastic bowl.

I'm sure others will add to this!!!

Hope you have a wonderful time, with fabulous sightings. :thumbs_up:
