The camp is made up of seven luxury tents. Sheltered on the banks of a small stream, under the cooling canopy of the riverine forest, this is a truly picturesque private property. Uniquely designed on raised decks, the octagonal canvas rooms are open on three sides creating a spacious and airy living atmosphere. All suites have en-suite bathrooms with flush loos and access to hot water 24 hours a day, as well as a complimentary daily laundry service.

Grab a morning coffee or tuck into breakfast at whatever time suits you best, dining times are entirely flexible. After a hearty evening meal under the stars many settle around the campfire for a late night cocktail, absorbing the sounds of the resident lion pride that prowl the property’s perimeters.

The range of activities here is extensive. Game drives are led by highly experienced guides with widespread local knowledge, with the superb night drives being a particular highlight. Excursions to nearby villages are an unforgettable cultural experience, while balloon safaris show the plains from a totally new perspective.
