Accommodation & Facilities

There is a range of rooms and studios available, each nicely designed with comfort in mind and an authentic African feel. Each room has an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and has a TV. Accommodation in simple, but clean, luxurious for this area of the world, but do not expect the same standards as safari destinations such as Kenya or Botswana for example. Guest accommodation is spread across tree buildings that are serviced like a hotel.

There is Wi-Fi available at a small fee, but this is quite slow and sporadic.


There is a restaurant on the premises serving traditional African cuisine, as well as some European specialities.


This would usually be a stopover near the airport before or after your Central African Safari. Activities here include shopping and hiking.
