Undoubtedly one of the best experiences of my life. The digs were super cool (best shower ever) and the guides were AWESOME. The food was also delicious, and my glass was never empty. Quartermains is glamping at its finest.

Hi, We stayed at Quatermains on the 1st and 2nd November, 2018. In a morning on the game drives it was very cold. My wife and I wore body-warmers and Rab jackets and needed gloves and a hat. Bearing in mind that November can be compared to Spring and July can be compared to mid-Winter I think it's fair to say it will be very cold whilst you are there!

Hi Liz, No there's not. You'll have to take extra batteries or a (solar) power-bank. It's a great place to stay, have fun!

"There are only three tents. Two close to the campfire area and one a little away."
"All tents are located a minute or two out from the main area, perfect to enjoy the nature!"
"Tent one is quite close to the kitchen, but they have built a privacy screen so you hear some noise but that's all."
"Tent 2 or 3"
"Not applicable - 3 tents - 2 twin-bedded, and one double."
