Hippo Campsites

BACK TO NATURE

Hippo Campsites

Nestled next to the Gwahumbe river, our Hippo Campsites offer the foundation for a true African camping escape. A stay at the campsites takes you into the heart of the valley and its untamed bush, providing privacy and peacefulness. It’s a treasure trove of exquisite bird and animals sightings with a flowing river that is put to good use on a hot summer afternoon.

Please Note: A 4×4 vehicle or vehicle with diff lock is required to reach the campsite.
