The classic safari guests tents are now larger after a relatively recent refurbishment, incorporating a spacious bathroom with a large walk-in shower and luxurious fittings. The larger bedroom with new linen and furniture in tasteful colours provide the perfect retreat. Wide sliding doors leading onto the extended front decks afford breath-taking views over the open floodplains or the mysterious waterways of the Delta.
The main lodge’s unique ‘tree house’ comprises a multi-tiered and canvas covered raised dining and lounge area. Its setting, amongst the shade of ebony and mangosteen trees, complements the atmosphere of this truly original safari camp.
Every possible comfort has been catered for – from mosquito nets, electric ceiling fans, generated electricity and a private viewing deck through to a decanter of sherry!
Accommodation is generally twin share on comfortable three-quarter size beds, however double accommodation is available on request, but subject to availability.
