Basic at best, accommodation is in rustic stone bungalows with en suite bathrooms and private barbecue facilities; several camping sites use the shade of the mopane and acacia trees that typify this sub-tropical region.
The swimming pool is the focal point of the quirky living area. Surrounded by Morris chairs with a local twist and presided over by a gnarled bar, the pool is an essential component of the instant relax-and-unwind formula. Leading off from the pool area is a dark and no less quirky restaurant that serves up some meaty home-grown meals.
It’s nothing fancy but you’ll feel at home here. Something about the character, unsophisticated ambience and old-fashioned hospitality. It’s down-to-earth, what you see is what you get and that’s the appeal. A good overnight option, better on a two night basis if you’re here for the Bushman experience.
Bird and game watching; walking trails; game tracking trips; farm drive; Bushman community interaction
The camp has two short walks with numbered trees and plenty of birds to identify; wildlife is limited to small antelopes and nocturnal omnivores; although eland are not uncommon. Organised visits to a Bushman village, 80km east, should be booked in advance and are well worth the time.
There's also a hide near the waterhole. Watch and wait.
