We decided to stay here for 2 nights rather than the seemingly more usual 1, and were so glad we did as it was such a lovely camp.
The setting is really beautiful and all the rooms have a wonderful sunset view looking out over the boulders. There is plenty of outside seating around your room, and a minibar inside it, allowing you can create your own sundowner spot. There is no additional charge for the drinks in your minibar compared to the restaurant, which we thought were a really nice touch.
We really liked the room layout which was very spacious and the sort of outdoor bathroom which also had lots of space. Each of the tents are set apart from each other which allows for privacy and if you want to sleep with the canvas open you can – we kept the mosquito protection though as it was quite buggy when we visited due to some rain the week before.
We did a couple of the guided walks while here, the sundowner walk one night (before we realised how spectacular the view was from our own room) and the morning walk to the top of the boulder, the latter is being nowhere near as difficult as you might think when looking up. It was a good way to work up an appetite before the later breakfast. Doing the morning walk also means you meet at the restaurant at the same time as the hundreds of cute rosy cheeked lovebirds congregate there.
We had good dinners here too, eating outside overlooking the spotlit waterhole at night although I would have appreciated a little more light at the tables as it’s impossible to see what you’re eating – which I don’t enjoy. The waterhole view also meant that we saw the caracol which has taken to visiting each night.
Finally, all the staff here were really charming and helpful and they make it feel like you’re staying with one big happy family. It’s a really lovely place to stay.
