Attractions

The intimate camp allows for a personalised experience in a private concession off the main tourist routes. The private reserve location allows for off road game drives and night drives in addition to the usual game drives, game walks, fishing, Mekoro excursions and boat  trips (water activities are subject to water levels).
The area is home to large populations of elephant and buffalo, especially during the dry season. Lion, sable, roan, leopard, wild dog, and a number of the plains game are also common sights in this area. Sitatunga, red lechwe, hippo and crocodile can be found in the surrounding marshes. Much of the wildlife moves here to drink, ensuring a great diversity of game and a restful atmosphere. The area also offers spectacular   birding all year round due to its location on the bank of a marsh and its proximity to the Linyanti River.
