Stayed in the tents and was initially worried that it was back to boy scout days. This was wrong the tent is more like a house. They have tents directly overlooking the river which are worth reserving. The deck by the restaurant is a great place to see hippos and watching them leave the water at night is a great sight. Can also recommend the Bush walk which involves a 4:15 start but lovely to do. This is a nice clean camp. A little basic on accommodation but not expensive.

Not only do these giants produce fruit at least twice a year, but different trees produce fruit at different times, extending the gifts of life over many months. Watching the endless procession of animals coming to drink at the Sabie River establishes a sense of one's own place in the eternal cycle. ... more less
