The camp itself is simple with each tent having been built on raised wooden decks in order to make the most out of the stunning vistas. Each tent comes with en-suite bathroom facilities with a bucket shower, a basin with fresh running water and flush toilets. Meals are served in the main camp central area with sundowners and evening drinks enjoyed around a campfire.
