Hi

I am not sure about this, but I recall reading somewhere that there were going to be upgrades and repairs done at Tamboti camp.

Has this occurred already or still due...? Would the whole camp be closed?

Please can someone help with this, as I do not want to stay there when there are renovations and such on the go...*it would just not be the same :( !!

Thanks

Morning Fizzpop,

We stayed there for 7 days during December and from what we could see all the tents around us, including the one we stayed in, #26, were brand new tents. I would be surprised if it has not been rolled out for all the tents. I do not know about the luxury tents though.

As far as the other buildings, ablutions/kitchen etc, I did not see any renovations done on those, but to be honest could not see that anything needed to be done.

Having said that, maybe the best idea would be to phone or e-mail the Orpen Reception and discuss it with them. I will find the numbers and let you know.

Hi Fizzpop, I can concur with Tessa that the camp is really spruced up. 8)

Enjoy your time there. :thumbs_up:
