There are 10 canvas tents on offer in this small and intimate camp. The Meru style tents are very comfortable and spacious, with a wonderful setting alongside the Ntungwe River. All of the tents provide a dressing room and en suite bathrooms. Hot water is provided in the bush showers and guests can expect an eco-flush toilet. Meals are taken in the dining area, with cuisine freshly prepared and a mix of international and local fare. The camp bar is well stocked and a good place to relax after a day spent observing some of Africa's most famous inhabitants. The camp aims to have as little impact on the environment as possible, with lighting solar powered. For charging electrical equipment there is a power point in the main area.

Perfect Location in a perfect Surrounding. Food was excellent and I met the Manager Jack, who was running a Camp in Madagascar I visited 2 Years ago. It was a big Hallo.

Review of Ishasha Wilderness Camp

Miss Amy Sullivan & Mr Daniel Goodheart

A stunning and secluded tented camp. The tents were very posh with beautiful views over the river with elephants often close by. We were lucky enough to see the tree climbing lions during one of our game drives which was very special. The staff were lovely and very funny, the chef was fantastic and the meals were outstanding.
