Thanks Nkuhlu! It just looks from the pics as though they are the same size because there is space at the end of the two beds in the CTT2 and it looks as though there is no space at the end of the 4 beds in the CTT4. We only need two beds, so we were wondering which would be the better bet in terms of comfort. This will be our first visit to Tamboti (2018).

Hi salamanda, if you are two people I would suggest the four bed for extra comfort. The space at the end of the beds in both sizes is exactly the same, a small wardrobe and a standing fan. The extra beds come in handy for any gear not stowed in the wardrobe.
You will enjoy Tamboti :lol:

Many thanks for that Nkuhlu. In the pic that I looked at, there was a fridge at the end of the beds in the CTT2 and not in the CTT4 which is probably why the space looked bigger. I assume the fridge is outside on the deck in a cage . . . . I'm sure we shall enjoy it - looking forward to a new experience!

Salamanda, Nkulu has given excellent advice.

I find that when I am alone, the 2 bedded unit is perfect. It can be rather small on longer trip, or for folk with a lot of equipment. I know that TessaG always books a 4 bedded unit.

I am long overdue for a Tambotie stay. :(
