Lion Camp’s stylish chalets feature a private balcony, stand fan and ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet. The chalets stand high above the savannah on stilts, and the entire lodge is linked by a system of lighted boardwalks. With no fences surrounding the lodge, wildlife is free to move unhindered, under the walkways. Elephant, hippos and small antelope such as bushbuck and puku, are frequently seen in camp. At the heart of Lion Camp is a gathering place — the step-down infinity pool, the dramatic boma fireplace, the woven copper bar, and as wildlife crosses the open plain in front of the lodge, an ever changing view.
