the African Bush, in the heart of a Big 5 game reserve. Tamboti Bush Lodge is nestled among 42 hectares of stunning bushveld, teeming with life and brimming with possibilities. Featuring the Big 5 and a host of wildlife species that are sure to satisfy casual observers and enthusiasts alike, and all within 1.5  hours of Johannesburg, Tamboti Bush Lodge is the perfect travel destination.

Dine with us in our restaurant while we serve up delicious homecooked meals, or catch up on emails and social media with our WiFi.

Besides being an idyllic travel destination, Tamboti Bush Lodge is the perfect location for functions and corporate events, and the entire Lodge can be booked out for groups of 8 or more, with custom packages tailored to your needs.


Make us your home away from home with our cozy, well-maintained rooms. Choose from 3 en-suite rooms or 2 wooden en-suite chalets that all boast air-conditioning for those hot African summers. Our accommodation is lovingly nestled in a beautiful garden, surrounded by lawns where big trees whisper quiet lullabies while fish jump in the dams, and notes of gentle birdsong reach your ears.
