I arrived around 1:00am and was pleased to see that I was able to just drive up to my campsite. It had outlets and facilities very close near which was all that we needed.

We booked 2 tents here for one night. We like camping, so we thoroughly enjoyed staying in these tents. The tent and en-suite bathroom is neat and well-equipped.

The contact number on their website as well as the booking agent sites was incorrect and due to the fact that we knew we would be a late arrival we wanted to let them know and check if it would be an issue. We struggled for hours...

Mac Mac Forest Retreat was the ideal location for the purpose of our trip. African Insight was hosting Luanda International School on their Year 9 trip which was an introductory trip for students to hiking. Norman and his team did a great job in organising the rooms for a very big group as well as provide outstanding catering. The trails...
