Fodor's Review

On the eastern edge of the park and resembling something out of the novel and films Beau Geste, this restored colonial fort with its flying flag and graceful palm trees is the most picturesque of the national-park camps. Hearing the bugle call from the watchtower at sunrise and sunset, you almost expect to see the French Foreign Legion come galloping over the horizon. The historic rooms are tiny—the troops didn't live all that well—so if it's comfort rather

than history you're after, don't choose a fort room; opt instead for one of the fully equipped bush chalets, built at a respectful distance from the fort so as not to destroy the ambience. A recent renovation has left the spacious chalets gorgeous and well equipped, with nice touches like patios and outdoor showers. Directly behind the fort is a floodlighted water hole for game-viewing.
