The success of our camps ultimately comes down to our extensive and hands-on experience managing safaris. From the beginning the company has grown from the interests and talents of the family. Above all, each and every one of us just loves to be on safari and are passionate about protecting these wildernesses that we love so much.
When to visit
The dry season between June to end November has higher concentrations of game. The camp remains open until the end of February, reopening again 1st June each year. Once the rains break the park will turn green and lush quite quickly – beautiful.
