Campsite and Facilities

We take pleasure in pampering our guests as we understand that with the rush of packing for a holiday they may forget some essential items. Therefore we offer a range of complimentary toiletries including shower gel, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.

Family Packages And Child Friendliness

Our Camp is very much child friendly. We provide items such as cots based on prior request. We have specialised menus for children. We have a number of activities for children including: nature walks, treasure hunts, painting, reading and many opportunities to learn and explore the wilderness. Family Safaris are designed to make a family’s stay a memorable and exciting experience.
