The only owner-run safari camp and the most atmospheric, with permanent tented rooms built onto a stilted wooden base all designed to give each a private bush enclosure with its own undisturbed view. The open-sided dining room and naturally sanded wood and rock-enclosed bar also make the most of the location, and food and service are excellent. Meals rely heavily on fresh fruit and produce, and vegetables and herbs from their own organic garden, and are greatly enhanced by a selection of fine wines from the bar.
