We were not informed that the shacks had no lights or electricity or that there are no light provided at the barbeque area. The lamps that were placed on the tables in the common area did not have any fuel in... see more

We had a very relaxed holiday. The 4 day paddle was exceptional with the guide being knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. For not having any facilities the food was excellent.Back at camp the facilities were everything that you would want and hope for in a 'rustic' camp site. Hennie and his staff have done a fantastic job.
