Thirteen beautiful Meru-style luxury safari tents provide comfort and protection from the elements. En-suite bathrooms within the tent are fitted with a shower, basin and ablution facilities. During the heat of the day a gentle spray from the water sprinkler system will cool you down, while in the cool of the night you can wrap yourself up in a gown or poncho provided in each tent. Basic toiletries are supplied, as well as insect repellant. Electricity is supplied by a generator that runs from 05h30 to 19h00, and the water is heated by gas.

Activities

Besides relaxing on the terrace and doing some bird watching, there are plenty of other activities at this camp site. Go on a game drive (day or night), hop into a ‘mokoro’ (a traditional dug-out canoe) or take off on a powerboat for some thrilling water game viewing. For the more active traveller, go on a walking safari or try your hand at fishing.
