Extremely comfortable hotel-room style tents which do not compromise on luxury or style
A very well laid-out property, the tents are very private and spread out from one another
The property has a tower where it is possible to have a dinner or drinks set-up or simply climb for stunning views of the surrounds
Less of an outdoor experience than some other tented camps in the area but very comfortable indeed
