WILD CAMP – FOR GROUPS

Wild camp is an exclusive-use site for groups of between 8-12 people with five luxury sleeping bell tents, a 5 metre ‘chill’ tent and an amazing 13m star canopy to enjoy meals or kick back and unwind. Everything is geared to a group of friends or family having fun and a very relaxed time!

In addition there is girls and boys loos, camp fire area, hammocks, swingballs and wildlife to keep you amused for days. The really cool outdoor barbeque kitchen and our amazing shower tower!

This is sleeping in the wild with a real difference. Accommodation has been designed to ensure that you get a real cosy night’s sleep whatever the weather. Bedrooms provide real beds and mattresses on solid wood floors and are divided into individual areas for privacy and comfort. Our snug sleeping cupboard is particularly popular with younger adventurers and always creates a little debate about who is going to get to sleep in it! We also provide hot water bottles if you require to get into an extra warm bed.
The range not only is an excellent cooker but also provides warmth in the evenings and night. This is located towards the rear of the lodge giving maximum benefit to all sleeping areas.
We provide warm duvets and pillows with guests bringing their own linen and towels. This is particularly good with younger children who love to have a little bit of home like their own duvet cover in their new and exciting surrounding. For a small charge bed linen can be provided.
In safari lodges the washing and lavatory cabins are tucked away at the rear of the lodge to ensure that you don’t have to walk too far but also you get a little bit of privacy even from the rest of your friends or family.
COOKING, EATING AND HEATING
When it comes to cooking you have a whole host of choices. The wood-fired cooker range within the lodge itself means that you can cook either on the hob or even turn out a lovely Sunday roast from the ovens. Outside you can have your own dedicated fire-pit which is great for barbeques and making sure that the men take over some of the cooking duties! The pantry provides most of your everyday requirements from locally made sausages to candles and we also provide inspirational quick and easy wild recipes.
FOOD TO ORDER
We produce a range of one pot meals that are a particularly good idea for your first hassle-free night and also give mum a bit of a holiday too! Meals come in cast-iron casserole dishes in all sizes, ready to go. Everything is home-cooked and uses local ingredients. Dishes could include wild beef casserole, seafood lasagne, chicken in the garden and wild veggie chilli and we also have delicious puddings such as Grandma’s apple and blackberry crumble and summer fruit pudding.
IN YOUR LODGE
Every lodge is supplied with a top of the range coolbox sourced from the capital of cool boxes – Texas. These can take everything from a large bottle of coke to a big bag of ice. The cool boxes can keep chilled throughout your stay, although you will need to replenish the ice packs every day. There are lots of great places to buy fresh food and vegetables locally so you really don’t need to bring too much.
The range is the heart of your lodgings and quietly keeps everything warm and cosy. It’s like having a little bit of sunshine always with you whatever the weather. There is something really special about sitting under canvas on even a stormy night with the rain lashing down and you chatting by candlelight in total warmth with later rolling into your snug bed just feet away.
