Each tent has an en suite bathroom and private deck where guests can relax and observe the wildlife passing through and around the lagoon. The dining and bar areas are also built on raised teak decking to offer magnificent views. A swimming pool is a welcome feature for cooling off during the hotter months.
In addition to a large elephant population, an abundance of game thrives in the area including giraffe, zebra, impala, wildebeest, tsessebe and lechwe. An exceptionally large pride of lions has taken up residence nearby, and their thrilling roars often rend the night air. Large herds of buffalo are frequent visitors, too. For bird enthusiasts, some 380 species are found in the region. Camp activities include day and night game drives, guided walks, boat rides, and mokoro (dugout canoe) excursions.
