This camp is used as the base for 'Big Cat Diary '. You sleep in huge army style tents with the luxury of a proper bed and shower . The camp is open , meaning that the wild life can come and go as they please, there are however armed guards just in case the wild animals venture too close. The first night a huge bull elephant decided to browse from a tree behind our tent then walked right by the side of it and fell asleep a short way away. The food was excellent and served in another large tent a short walk away.
I would not say this is luxury accommodation in fact it is quite basic but this is the best way to experience the wild and it is an experience that will never be forgotten.
