                          The trees, animals. Friendliness. Helpfulness. Great experience!

                          The place was fantastic and the owners extremely friendly, hospitable and helpful. The only slight hiccup was that they had kindly stored our cold food in their fridge for us, and then all went home and shut up shop for the night at about 5 or 6pm on the night before we were to leave, and only reappeared at 8am the next morning (we had been hoping to get away somewhat earlier than that). It seems rather strange to have *no-one* on duty or available to handle emergencies overnight. I would suggest that they leave someone on-site to receive late arrivals or tend to emergencies, or at least have...

                          Surprisingly green and beautiful location in the "desert". Motivated and caring owner.

                          We stayed two nights at the campsite with 8 people and 3 4x4 land cruisers. Great location, nice riverbed close by for day trip touring. Good facilities and for sure an oase in the desert environment.
