Designed to creatively embrace the granite boulders, the camp embodies its Swahili meaning as it ‘blesses’ the mind, body and soul. The camp is facing out onto superb scenery. Incorporating boulders, small red basalt rocks and mopane branches, it has a natural organic feel.
The eight rooms are round in shape, with large outside decks. The outside, partially open bathrooms adjoining the bedrooms have boulder, cement and rock walls, and roofs of rough mopane branches. Hot water is supplied by wood-burning ‘donkey’ boilers.
