Penthouse in the bush

Simba Family Tent

The Simba Family Suite is a self-contained penthouse in the bush with a private driveway. Complete with kitchen, dining room and living area, the tent connects two enormous double bedrooms, both ensuite. There’s a fully stocked bar and fridge and guests can decide the level of service they require – a butler can be present at all times to pour drinks and make coffee as required, or staff will stay in the background to give guests the freedom to help themselves to the amenities. The expansive terrace with small plunge pool provides an ideal viewpoint for wildlife watching during the day and stargazing at night. The main feature of the Simba Suite is exclusivity with your own dedicated chef for all meals as well as a private game drive vehicle and guide.

Nina Tent

These tents are ideal for couples. The high dome centers over a double bed decked out in fine linens. Six opening panels encompass the bed on three sides, which mean that from the comfort of your pillow, you can watch the dawn break in panorama. The rear section of the tent houses your en-suite bathroom and dressing area and in front of the tent is a large deck where you can enjoy private dining, sunbathing and star gazing.

Exquisite & Wild Cuisine

This is bush life at its most glamorous – fine cuisine, a fully stocked bar and personal service. The Camp experienced chef will impress you with a varied menu while our staff will pour your drinks. The beauty of our catering is its mobility – wherever you are in the Conservancy or the Reserve, you can indulge in excellent fresh food served on china plates and chilled drinks poured into real glasses. As well as being mobile we’re also flexible. Breakfast can be before you head out for a morning game drive or after you come back. Lunch can be a perfect picnic out in the Reserve or a light lunch back in camp. After a long day on safari, afternoon tea is delivered to your room as you take a few hours to relax and re-energize. And if all that’s not enough, enjoy a 3 course dinner in camp or out in the bush under the stars.
