Camp there one night in April 2017. Camp site was excellent with own toilet and bush shower. We had camp to ourselves. Very peaceful. Only negative experience was camp employees talking loudly all night.

Loved it! We had a wonderful safari experience in small four-wheel drive vans. The roads were bumpy, but that added to the pleasure. Really enjoyed it!

If you are driving with your own truck you just need to show up in the gate. If you want to get a guided tour I would recommend driving. Enjoy!
