I was there with my partner and we had a great stay. Food was plentiful and delicious. The tents are very spacious and comfortable. The highlight is the watering hole with regular animal visits, including a beautiful elephant family. I would love to visit here again.

This is a gem of a safari camp. Amazing tents overlooking the watering hole. Everything about this place was just a joy. Atmospheric main building, good food and excellent staff. When you return to your tent in the evening you will find a welcoming hot water bottle in your bed.
