Address: Black Rhino Game Reserve, Pilanesberg, North West Province, South Africa.
Tambuti Game Lodge is set in the Black Rhino Game Reserve, but, since the fences between the reserves have been dropped, it is also considered one of the Pilanesberg lodges. It is siuated on the north western side of the greater Pilanesberg National Park, and is only 33 km away from Sun City.
Number of luxury suites: 5 • Bed capacity: 10 guests
Children under the age of six cannot be accommodated
The reserve, also in a malaria-free area, is characterized by large number of Tamboti trees which attract the scarce black rhino. These trees also host a wide variety of bird species thus making the area a birding paradise.
Visitors may enjoy a more exclusive wildlife experience than just driving through the busier southern section of Pilanesberg. Game drives take guests through the Black Rhino Reserve into the unexplored valley of the Pilanesberg before reaching the 200 km road network in Pilanesberg itself.
Apart from the Big 5, other special sightings include the Brown Hyaena, Eland, the scarce black rhino and a wide variety of bird species.
Tambuti Lodge is surrounded by the trees of an old Tamboti forest at the foot of the ancient Pilanesberg volcanic crater. The contemporary elegance at Tambuti Lodge is complemented by the excellent service and hospitality offered by our Tambuti Team, affording guests an intimate and luxurious safari experience.
