About Tamboti Ridge B & B

Situated in a lovely sub-tropical garden with a breathtaking view up the Pongola River, it is ideally located 1km off the N2 Highway between Pongola and Mkuze at the T-junction to Golela.
Tamboti Ridge Ranch is an established sugar and game farm situated in the peaceful beauty of the Northern Kwa-Zulu Natal bushveld. It is an ideal stop over point when travelling between Johannesburg, Kruger Park or Swaziland and the Zululand Resorts such as Sodwana Bay, Kosi bay, St.Lucia and Hluhluwe and Mfolozi Reserves or Southern Mozambique Resorts such as Ponta Do Ouro.
Dinner can be arranged by prior booking at our up market game lodge, SHAYAMOYA, where you can enjoy the dramatic views and camaraderie at the bar. We serve a 4-course meal in the Bundu Pot restaurant, or a traditional braai outdoor at the Boma.
Our cottage has four bedrooms, all with air-conditioning and ceiling fans, TV’s and bar fridges. Each room is en-suite with a bath and shower. The spacious rooms lead out onto a wooden deck where you can relax and enjoy the spectacular sunsets.
We operate on a Bed & Breakfast basis. We also operate on a self-catering basis with a fully equipped kitchen and braai area.  
We have an attractive TV lounge (DSTV)  and a separate dining area although wholesome farm-style breakfasts are served in the family homestead.
Relax under the beautiful trees, listen to the variety of birdcalls. Swim lengths in the large pool, which is situated next to the braai area. Take a walk around the ranch.
Our property is adjacent to the Pongola Nature Reserve and the Pongolapoort Lake.
Bring your own boats and tackle the challenge of tiger fishing!
Depending on availability, guests may take part in activities which Shayamoya Tiger Fishing and Game Lodge conduct - Game drives, sundowner boat cruises, tiger fishing, elephant monitoring, rhino tracking, horse riding or canoeing.

I had a wonderful stay at Tambotie, staff very helpful. Rooms were clean and neat. Breakfast was good. A special thanks to Beverly, she was helpful and understanding when I was getting lost, she even waited at the gate for us, I appreciate that a lot.

No it wasn't very good.room was dirty and no attention to detail. Patio furniture was moved by their friends and only returned much later, no where to sit.
