This camp has been around since the mid 90’s and is built on a raised part of the river bank some 17 kilometres upstream from the Falls and 30 minutes drive from the airport. The camp is well designed to take advantage of the views across a wide bend in the main river and the perspective from camp is wonderful.
The central area is delightfully colonial in style with old books, silverware and plenty of photographs to complete the illusion that one has stepped back in time. This feeling is further enhanced on meeting the owner manager Peter Jones, an ex British army officer with a passion for the history of the area.
The camp sleeps a maximum of 20 guests, the rooms were designed to be open fronted but inquisitive monkeys amongst other unwanted wildlife have forced the fronts to be screened in recent years. The rooms are split level and extend out from the steep river bank. There is a pool with a fantastic elevated view of the river and also a croquet lawn.
