About the Private Wing

The Private Wing offers desired exclusivity for guests who are looking for maximum privacy, with 8 tents overlooking the hippo infested river and 4 luxury tents, set in the croton bush forest!

All 12 luxury tents are designed with great attention to detail, large, spacious and with luxurious soft furnishings that give it the desired comfort of a “luxury camp with a natural bush feeling." All tents are equipped with en-suite bathrooms, mini-fridge and a fan. Tents are set, ensuring maximum privacy and a private terrace with views of the river or serene forest! The highlight is our Private Hippo Pool that hosts over 50 hippos at any given time! The camp is unfenced and built with a low impact on the environment.

The Private Wing Experience

Hippo Pool Bar

The Hippo Pool Bar is one of most popular camp features! Guests can enjoy their drink of choice from our Hippo bar and views of the Hippo bathing in the river as they chill out on the lounge chairs. Join us for Happy Hippo Hour!

Our Cozy Lounge and Bar

Our spacious lounge with a hand-crafted bar and cozy sofa sets, serves as a meeting point where guests can relax and enjoy a cocktail, exchange the day’s experiences before moving on to the adjacent dining tent for a delicious meal. The Lounge/Bar over-looks the river, so guests can enjoy views of the Hippos swimming below!

Our Dining Experience

We offer outdoor dining, weather permitting. On a clear night, you will encounter thousands of stars in the romantically lit camp setting. Meals are served a la carte! Our lovely dining tent is used only during bad weather.

Our Photographers' Lounge

The Luxurious Private Wing offers a lounge, specifically designed for photographers, that offers charging points for their equipment and is ideal for photographic workshops. A projector and screen is available too.

Our Camp Fire

Set overlooking the river and under the stars on comfortable canvas chairs, reminisce the day and the impressions on wildlife & nature. Share stories of all that you experienced whilst enjoying a cold drink and hot / cold canapés.
