The en-suite bathrooms feature a shower, (hot and cold water) which is crafted to resemble a cave and blends with the natural rock and bush of this area. From its hilltop site the camp overlooks a valley & each safari tent is positioned on a raised timber deck offering you your own private game viewing.

The Emthombeni restaurant offers an elegant African dining experience complemented by authentic African decor. High thatched roofs blend with the rich stone flooring creating the ambience of a mysterious & exciting Africa. Meals can be enjoyed inside the restaurant or on the elevated timber viewing deck with glimpses of the Indian Ocean & the African bush. Open every Wednesday evenings for our famous Burger nights and Sundays for our Sunday lunch buffets.

The Sunset Lapa is hewn from the rocks of the area & covered in thatch. It is set on a majestic hillside with wonderful views of our African sunset.
