Accommodation & Facilities

The 4 reed and thatched rondavels are simple, but comfortable and all en-suite, complete with paraffin lanterns and mosquito netting. Bathrooms have toilets, wash basins and ‘safari’ bucket showers, hot water is on request. Rooms are spacious, 2 are twins with queen sized beds, the other 2 are doubles with big king beds. Canvas chairs are supplied for sitting outside amongst the wildlife and comfy chairs are provided inside, so you can sit and marvel at the view through panoramic windows. 3 of the 4 rondavels have spectacular views looking over the Manzi River; the fourth is a little further out, looking over plains frequented by impala and puku and sometimes, elephants and buffalo!

The main area has been kept simple, a thatched area containing the dining area, a library, the bar and space for lots of comfy deckchairs. Nearby you’ll find a portable basin to wash the bush dust away before maybe heading off to the campfire overlooking the wild plains.


Food is of great quality, with a home made, country pub feel. Meals are served in the dining area or out in the open, under the stars in the evening.


The main activity in this untamed area is walking safaris, especially with Phil Berry as your guide and some of South Luangwa’s most stunning and diverse landscape. Game drives are also available, day and night, but the order of things and the days activities will depend on the preference of you and the other guests. A favoured schedule is walking through the day and heading out in the afternoon for a drive.

Child Policy

Children over 12 are allowed, however under 16’s are not allowed to walk in the park.
