Over the last few years I have stayed at the Tamboti Lodge in Tzaneen, South Africa, and have written two reviews extolling the beauty, comfort and quality of the lodge, as well as the kindness of the staff. Recently the lodge was sold and is under new management, and I have not had the opportunity to revisit since. With that...

We had a pleasant stay at Tamboti Lodge. Except for a squeeking appartment door there was nothing to complain about and we felt very well taken care of. It was a special treat to have breakfast on the balcony of the restaurant overlooking the pool and the lush tropical vegetation.

We spent a long weekend recently in the beautiful town of Tzaneen having booked in at Tamboti Lodge. Our unit was beautifully decorated, had adequate space with a modern bathroom. We had doors opening out a little balcony surrounded with beautiful gardens, ponds and water features. The tranquility created inside of the room continued outside. Lovely breakfasts are served in...

We received personal attention from the chef and our food was prepared to perfection. The room was cosy and clean. The garden was beautiful, green and fell good on the eye. Tamboti Lodge is a stay over I will recommend and use again.

“Poolside definitely -and check that it is serviced before you settle in. Also note that you get Ricoffy and single ply toilet tissue as part of the amenities. And note that the doors and shutters are a bit difficult to open and close -and watch out for uncovered electrical outlets as per pic from room.”
