Staying with us
The camp provides eight generously sized campsites, with six suitable for up to eight persons and two designed for larger groups. The smaller campsites can accommodate up to four tents or two vehicles with rooftop tents, while the larger campsites can accommodate up to fourteen guests and feature separate male and female ablution facilities.
Each campsite is equipped with a charming kitchen area that includes a washbasin and running water while the braai area also serves as a geyser, providing hot water for the ablution facilities as you cook your meals. The presence of large granite boulders offers protection from the wind and creates natural partitions between the campsites, adding to the picturesque setting of your stay.
Our four permanent tents are furnished with beds and bedding, bedside tables, a bench, and a private ablution facility located behind each tent. It's the ideal option for a break from setting up your own campsite.
At this haven in the wilderness, you can enjoy a social drink at the bar while savouring the view of the surrounding bushveld, and perhaps taking a dip in the small pool nestled in the rocks, before making your dinner beneath a star-studded sky.

- Accommodation for up to fourteen people in eight different campsites
- Four permanent tents with added comforts
- Ample space for tents, either on the ground or rooftop
- A kitchen area
- Outdoor shower with warm water

The region is teeming with wildlife that roams freely, although it is important to note that sightings cannot be guaranteed. However, be sure to remain observant for the desert-adapted elephant, rhino, and lion, which may grace you with their presence.

We kindly request you to securely pack away your food and belongings whenever you leave to avoid any unexpected encounters with these mischievous creatures.
