Originally built by local artisans, this is the reason why no two nooks are the same. Even with all of the traditional colours you'd expect of a tented safari camp, this place really has character of its own. It's in the details - the Moroccan textiles, African hints and the wrought iron four-poster beds.
Twelve meru tents feature sassy en-suite alfresco bathrooms and views out into the nothingness, which is the exact thing that makes this place extraordinary. It's in the setting. A one million-acre private wildlife reserve and you have most of it to yourself.
Explore the salt pans and visit archaeological sites either by car or by bike (and by that, we mean quad biking, so get ready for a thrill). You can also go to Chapmans and Greens Baobab. Soak up all the postcard magic of an area so open and endless yet offering a world of wonder. Keep an eye out and you can meet the locals - a meerkat family. Most people say it is their favourite part, we'd have to agree. They always provide entertainment, especially for the kids.
Join a night drive to see the nocturnal animals that you may have only ever heard of, otherwise, a game drive wrapped up with a sundowner, serves a real treat.
There's no WiFi here and no hairdryers in the tents. It's a good thing the focus here is anyways on the bush.
While this is no five-star accommodation, your morning coffee delivery, the friendly staff and the extra attention to detail on your trip, will make it hard to find a reason not to return and you haven't even left yet.
12 en suite tents with shower; supplied drinking water; main mess tent with library and lounge; swimming pool; outdoor lounge; bar; complimentary laundry service
Battery charging in the mess tent. No WiFi. No hairdryers.
Children of all ages welcome.
Get up close and personal with habituated meerkats or the local Bushman on a bush walk as they explain their lifestyle and how they live in the desert.
Enjoy drives and quad bike tours of the area with guides. Stop at historical and cultural sites such as Chapmans and Greens Baobab.
Game drives and night drives take place every day and are often combined with sundowners. Some of the best you may see. Open salt pans and a horizon of orange hues. Spectacular.
Horseback safaris are an option for change of pace. Head off for two hours or request even a multi-day adventure for those with some experience.
Between April and October, why not venture to Kubu Island on quad bikes for a sleep out on the pans under an endless sky. This is something you won't do elsewhere! Its one-of-a-kind.
In the green season, witness the second largest migration of zebra and wildebeest in Africa. Something you have to see to believe.
