The camp is nestled under large acacia trees in a diverse game rich area. Most of the concession area comprises a mixed woodland habitat that gives way to open grasslands which can transform into floodplains in years of plentiful water.
Accommodation is in 5 Savannah canvas tents, which are spacious and comfortable, designed to recreate the style of the early explorers, with richly-coloured teak director chairs and comfortable interiors. Separate bedside tables with 12-volt reading lamps, wooden-framed wardrobes, comfortable twin beds and mirrors are provided. A private, en-suite toilet and shower forms part of the structure.

An after-dinner digestif may be enjoyed around the fire or taken in the cosy lounge adjacent to the dinning area.
