It’s a pristine area of outstanding wildlife viewing, with wild dog, lion, leopard, elephant, sable antelope and buffalo all to be found, as well as more than 400 species of resident and migrant birds.

The camp offers an array of water-based activities including motorboat, mokoro (traditional canoe) and walking excursions.
