Situated on a private concession beside the national park, the eight standard and two deluxe tented suites of this established, family-owned safari camp all overlook a waterhole.
Its hub is a thatched, two-storey A-frame with the dining and lounge area, and facilities include a plunge pool plus two comfortable hides for wildlife viewing. Wake up to the first calls of robins and hornbills as the dawn light creeps in, enjoy a cup of freshly delivered coffee on the verandah and watch elephants, kudu, giraffe and zebra come down to the mist-edged waterhole. The accomodation features an underground hide, accessed by a short walk from the main camp - offering a unique perspective for photography at the waterhole.
At the end of the day, soak in a soothing hot bath as the buffalo stroll silently by or enjoy an energising outdoor shower under the stars.
You may want to experience sleeping out at The Dove’s Nest treehouse, but you’ll need to book in advance.
