This was our first visit to Mpila, and we were very impressed with the Safari Tented Camp. We were two couples, and shared a 4-bed Safari Camp. This consisted of two separate sleeping tents (each tent had an en-suite bathroom) and a kitchen. All three tents were connected via an elevated wooden walkway, with railings and gates to prevent wild animals from entering the space (except the monkeys). We were visited each night by spotted hyenas, but they were timid and not aggressive in any way. There were also warthogs, impala and nyala in the camp.
The tents are well appointed and very clean, and the Safari Camps are well spaced so offer some privacy from neighbouring tents. The units are serviced daily.
We have visited more upmarket tented camps in Southern Africa, and the Safari Camp compares favourably with its more expensive counterparts. Highly recommended.
