Tembo was a wonderful place to stay and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as holiday accommodation. The owners obviously care about their visitors and have created a very homely and welcoming safari tent. This is definitely glamping to the highest degree. I'm planning on rebooking as soon as I can for another week's stay next year.
