Perfect, perfect place for a family adventure holiday. The tents are great - comfortable, and such a location overlooking the river. We were looked after royally by Gwen and the team. We had our 3 boys with us, aged 9, 13 and 14, and were taken on some great adventures by Johan, rafting, canyoning and kayaking. Johan was a fabulous guide - definitely putting our safety first, and coming up with great games and adventures to keep us all happy and challenged.
We went during the rainy season, and so enjoyed sitting in the communal area, reading or playing games, as the rains lashed down. Food was delicious and plentiful. Shower blocks were clean and inviting. Stayed 2 nights. Wouldn't have minded a third!
