These luxury safari tents are set in the stunning wilderness region of the Gawler Ranges in South Australia. This is perfect for the nature lover who really wants to be away from tourist areas and experience some of South Australia’s finest scenery and wildlife.
The camp has been developed by its owners from a lifetime of experience on how to best live in this dry climate. Water is collected from the roofs and is the only water source. Techniques are used for its preservation but you still have private showers and flushing toilets.
The curved roofs also help to cool the tents as they always keep the air flowing. No vegetation has been removed from the site but the camp was designed and built using the natural fire breaks that the trees in this place create for their own protection. The camp has a central dining room which is mostly open sided but is closed when the weather is not so perfect. The camp is a wonderful place to relax, walk and observe the nature which lives in harmony with our presence.
