Tamboti is situated in the central region of Kruger National Park on the banks of the usually dry Timbavati River. Tamboti is, due to the size and location, one of the most popular Kruger Park restcamps so early booking is advised. Tamboti Tent Camp is set among large riverine trees on the road to Satara Rest Camp. Visitors to Tamboti gain access at Orpen Gate.
Tamboti Camp is located close to other Kruger Park restcamps. Orpen Main Rest Camp is only about 2km (1.2 miles) away. To Olifants Camp it is about 104km (64.6 miles) and to Talamati Bushveld Camp 32km (19.9 miles).
