Fodor's Review

Marula seeds softly falling on the tents seem to be applauding this gorgeous little camp shaded by a canopy of giant trees. You'll feel like a sultan as you lie beneath your billowing, honey-colored canvas roof, which acts as a ceiling for your basket-weave handmade bed and headboard. Polished wooden floors, gauze-screened floor-to-ceiling windows, a roomy dressing area with two stone washbasins, and a fabulous ensuite bathroom create a feeling of such roominess and elegance

that it's hard to believe you're in a tent. The camp's dining area, lounge and huge wooden decks almost nudge the very edge of the Timbavati River.
