The Lounge and dining area in made from canvas and is open sided to emphasise the views over the river and surrounding land. There is also a campfire, plunge pool and sun loungers, all ideal for sharing stories, relaxing or sipping a sundowner.


Food here is traditional, delicious and there is plenty of it!


Night drives here are very exciting; guides are excellent and really good at leopard spotting. There are also boat trips available, the rivers are home to lots of crocodiles and hippos and you are sure to see some wildlife using the sandy beaches as a drinking spot. Guided nature walks are also possible.
