Fodor's Review

For a genuine bush-camp experience—no unnecessary frills—it would be hard to beat this old-fashioned camp (pronounced ka-kan-ah-ka). From the moment you walk through the rustic reception area, a feeling of unpretentious warmth and relaxation envelops you; it's no wonder that visitors return again and again. Each spacious tent has wooden floors, plenty of storage space, a huge comfy bed, reading lamps, a megasize bathroom under the stars (read: no roof), and

a viewing deck. Lighting at night is au naturel (candles, hurricane lamps, and flashlights), although there's electricity during the day. The staff, many with more than 10 years of experience, get everything right, from their attentive service to the superb, wholesome, home-cooked food. Even the resident croc, who sunbathes under her very own sign ""Beware crocodile"," has been here since she was a tiny whippersnapper. Wooden-decked public areas sprawl along the water, and elephants and hippos wander past your tent most nights.
