Staff also provide the special touch of supplying guests hot water bottles at night, always welcome on cool winter evenings.
The camp offers night and day game drives, the former offering a unique insight into the behaviour of wildlife after dark. If guests cannot wait to enjoy game viewing in-between drives, the animals that frequent the nearby waterhole can be observed from a log pile hide. Guests will also find in camp an inviting outdoor plunge pool, a lounge area, dining room and quaint camp fire.
