Relaxation typically takes place around the main area – made of stone, canvas and thatch with bar and swimming pool – watching the diverse wildlife happenings in front of camp. Eight large comfortable Meru-style tents, all with en-suite facilities, open air showers and private verandas, accommodate 16 guests. The family unit sleeps four.
