          This is a fabulously remote camp, a satellite of the larger Orpen Camp. You feel genuinely remote here as each tent is snug within it's own part of the bush and you can hardly hear/see neighbours. Amazing views over the dry river bed where the...More

          We've booked a few days at Tamboti Camp at one of the standard tends (not the ones with private ablutions, which I sadly didn't know about beforehand) and are looking forward to being in the bush. I'm just not sure what all to bring in terms of cooking equipment and crockery. Is there anything there, or do we need to bring it all with us (pots, pans, glasses, cutlery, crockery, etc.)? Also, do we need to bring our own bedding and / or towels? In the pics it looks like those are supplied, but I'd like to make sure! Thanks - all advice appreciated.
