Rebuilt in 2012, this welcoming camp, imaginatively decorated and furnished, is in raised tent chalets under thatch and overlooking the water and lies at the very heart of the concession. The spacious chalets have African fabrics; clever cane furniture decorated with plaited reeds, brass, and local beadwork; an indoor shower and another on your outside deck so you can wash as you view; and personal touches such as a guinea-fowl feather or dried seedpod placed artistically
among your towels. The lounge and dining area of the main lodge are open on all sides (a bit cold in winter); the toilet at the end of the deck must have the best view of any in the world. The food is simple but superb. Before you set out on your early-morning game drive, try a plate of piping-hot porridge, a Danish straight from the oven, or a freshly baked muffin.
