Most frequent sightings include kudu, bushbuck, impala, wildebeest, waterbuck, reedbuck and hippo.

The camp is on the eastern banks of the Lugenda River with only eight East African styled luxury tents no more than 40 metres from the waters edge, under the large wild fig tress which attract elephants in the early morning and afternoon. The tents are all en suite with Victorian styled deep bath tub, shower, ceiling fan and concrete screed floors to keep it cool and a private wooden viewing deck.

The main area is timber and thatch, a cosy central meeting area with sitting and dinning areas, a pool with sun loungers have views over the river. Your day generally starts with tea/coffee and a muffin before your early morning game drive or walk, breakfast and lunch back in camp in the main area. Gather again in the late afternoon for high tea on the deck before your afternoon activity and return in the evening to freshen up for dinner and an evening under the African sky.
