The accommodation at the camp underwent refurbishment in 2010 so guests can look forward to a refreshed and charming stay, with rooms bedecked in African decor and rustically styled. All of the accommodation provides views of the Luangwa River and are raised on wooden platforms. There are 8 private safari chalets and an additional 2 new suites, providing guests with a viewing veranda to make the most of the gorgeous scenery.

With a wild mango tree rising from its centre the lodge dining and lounge area is ideal for taking a break on a sunny day, relaxing under the tree's shady branches while the campfire is a focal point for meeting and greeting and listening to the guides' tales of adventures in the wilderness. The lodge also boasts a pool, natural hot spring and a wellness hideout for massages and taking it easy.
