Originally the home of Robin Pope himself, it has now been turned into a family house for the families that want privacy and exclusivity. With its own kitchen and chef, private vehicle and guide it is fully self contained (although just down from Nkwali, should you need the swimming pool!). This is one of the few places you can have children of all ages and gives the flexibility for you to decide your activities around your children’s schedules.

A safari can be an incredible experience for those with children but often tricky when you are around other guests and certain activities have age limits. Here, thanks to being a private house, your kids can fully immerse themselves into learning all about the bush from footprints to feathers and poop to bird calls. Your private guide can take them round the house to show them how to be a mini-guide themselves.
You are away from other guests so if your little ones do decide to throw the mother of all tantrums, they are only going to get themselves into trouble, not the parents! Get your children involved in nature and let them discover the wonder of the wilderness.
As you have your own house with your own staff you can make your own timings. Your kids need a lie in? No problem. You want a snack? No problem. Fancy an early night? No problem! Just discuss with your hosts to meet your needs for activities, food and comfort. After all, this is your home from home in the bush!
The house is based in a game management area so you are not constricted by park rules. This means your little ones can go on short walks with the guide (to his discretion) to learn how to track, to learn to bird and to see some smaller creatures.
Don’t be fooled though you are just across the river from the park and will often have animals in camp (particularly elephants who love crossing the river) so you will still see plenty. And, of course, you will cross the river for the game drives!
