This wonderful and niche camp lies on the Livingstone side of Victoria Falls and is but a short distance from the falls and town itself but makes you feel you are in the middle of nowhere. Consisting of 8 twin suites and 2 family units, all built with an environmentally conscious design to fit into the surrounding landscape. Tented suites with indoor and outdoor bathrooms plus your own private plunge pool. Next door to the main mess area is a spa and gym that you can use at your own convenience – the spa is especially convenient, with fantastic views over the Zambezi River it is perfect when you need someone to untie those small knots in your back from your safari excursion or river safari!
The stunning views of the Zambezi River is what makes this camp so magical. The views really are breath taking and added with the distant rumble of the falls and sounds of the bush what more could want? The sunken boma on the main deck is perfect for a romantic dinner for two or pre-supper drink with friends, sipping on gin and tonics with a small fire to keep the toes warm whilst watching the sun go down. Adjacent to the boma deck is an infinity pool, ideal for a few leisurely laps or to cool off from the midday heat.
