The camp provides tents for up to 12 guests in a relaxing setting built with a 1920's antique charm. Dining consists of local bush cuisine, often taken beside the waterfalls or on game drives. The outdoor veranda offers a stunning view of the surroundings and the opportunity to take a bush bath and perhaps a massage on the doorstep of this backdrop is swoon-worthy.

The cuisine and silver service are of the highest to be found in the bush. Take advantage of the bush breakfasts and bush lunches so that you can stay out on game drives longer. Take one of those Bush meals by the waterfall and watch the baboons playing nearby.
As there concession is outside the game parks, therefore guided walks and night drives are allowed and highly recommended. By walking, guests can get that much closer to nature, and if an opportunity to track wild game presents itself, there trained trackers will take guests even closer. On a more self indulgent note, there masseuse will now be based full-time at the camp for complimentary massages, manicures and pedicures. Any other needs that guests may have will be met by butlers who have been trained to provide guests with discreet, yet attentive service. Activities also include game drives in 4-wheel drive vehicles, night game drives, guided bush walks, river swimming, river fishing and swimming pool.
