In the evening gather round the fire-pit with fellow guests to exchange your travel and wildlife stories and sightings. Braai packs and firewood are also available at reception. A laundry service is available. Mobile connectivity allows the camp's guests to keep in touch with loved ones at home.

The self-catering kitchens offer an alternative to the restaurant for guests who wish to prepare their own meals. Enjoy a refreshing sundowner as the beautiful Namibian sunsets on your private verandah, whilst savoring the tranquil river atmosphere.
