Fantastic concept, site camp, accommodation and food with a friendly and helpful cook. Spoiled by the guide (Raymond Khoza) who was disinterested, disengaged and rude.

The Napi camp (max 8 people) is in a beautiful, secluded location and very comfortable. Tents have proper beds, hot showers and flushing toilets. The views from the tent balcony and the eating area are brilliant. The food was plentiful and really good. Julius and...More

My favourite place by far in Kruger Park. Great rangers. Beautifully set out camp. Tents on-suite with great views. Wonderful birding and night sounds considering drought and season. Camp very clean and neat. Even in extreme drought we saw and learnt lots. We were all...More
