                  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.

                  This must be the worst misleading advertising of any resort or camping site I have ever been part of, the camp sites had no electricity there was no water to shower we camped next to animals holding pens that had the most terrible smell. Very disappointed that we had to spend Christmas at this poorly run camp

                  Thank you Petra and her team we had a wonderful time, it is a lovely, quiet,  place to rest and recharge. Love the mountains around you, it is a Oasis.
