Tented accommodation

Each tent rests on a raised wooden deck, providing elevated vistas of rolling plains bathed in the amber glow of the midday sun, where darting birds tweet their greetings from scrubby acacias. A spotlight provides twenty-four hour access to your views and even the en-suite bathroom flows out onto a deck with a large bathtub, allowing you to submerge yourself in luxurious relaxation in the great outdoors. A sample of bath-time amenities is provided for your convenience and there is also a shower for quick rejuvenation.When you've absorbed your fill of the African sunshine, you can retreat to air-conditioned comfort and continue your vigil through glass paned doors, sustained by refreshment from the mini bar (on req.) and an unlimited supply of bottled water. Additional comforts to remind you that you are still in the present day include a tea and coffee station, complimentary sherry station, umbrella, hair-dryer and room safe. International adapters are available from reception.Plump king-sized beds will envelop you after the day’s adventures. Sink into slumber, cocooned in luxurious cotton linen, lulled by the stillness of the night and gentle whirring of the overhead fan.
