We stayed for two days here with friends and the total experience was really super! The unique element is that it is so small scale, only three tents. You feel at home right from the start. Host Warren welcomes you when you return from the safari and both rangers (David and Justin) were excellent. The staff is also very friendly and the food was excellent too. This was not our first visit to a game reserve but certainly the best.

An abundant variety of wildlife includes lion,rhino, elephant, giraffe, cheetah, buffalo, zebra and a myriad of plains game. The stone, canvas and thatched main lodge is at the heart of the camp, with four private safari tents elevated on wooden decks that enhance the spectacular views of surrounding plains and bush. All tents have panoramic views of the African plains, and game viewing can often be enjoyed from the comfort of your bed.
