I spent 1 night in this beautiful camp during October 2013 and wished I could spend at least one more day there. This is a small intimate camp; there are only 4 thatched rooms with canvass walls. All rooms are elevated by wooden structures and surrounded by trees and bushes. Half of room is open to the air (no door and no windows) with extended wooden viewing deck facing a water hole. I saw giraffes, springboks, impalas and zebras drinking water in front of my tent about 100 m away. Shower is open style too make you feel back to the nature. This is a really relaxing place. The dining area is pretty; breakfast was nice and sufficient. Dinner was three-course style, soup, main dish and desert, all excellent! There was wine menu too. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a night game drive seen many lions and even heard of the King of the forest howling for his dinner. It was truly a wonderful experience staying at this place.
