Children: We accept children but adults must be aware that our camp is not fenced and no additional facilities are available to occupy them outside our normal excursions.


Safety: Safety is of paramount importance and therefore askaris (night-watchmen) patrol the camp at regular intervals. Guests are advised to remain in their tent after dark, and will be escorted between their tent and the lounge/dining areas by a staff member
