It comprises eight en-suite canvas units with a sleep-out above each from which to enjoy moonlit or star-studded nights.
A highlight of your stay is the interpretive, guided "Bushman Walk" led by camp staff members who hail from the San Bushman clans of the area. The walk provides insights into their traditional lifestyle through dress, activities and a short walk (800 metres) in the immediate camp area. Your stay includes twice daily scheduled camp activities and all meals.
