The camp is situated in the middle of a sugarcane field ans is very quiet. During the day the view is great! The night was magical, due to a dozen of candles installed around the tent. Practically, day and night, we couldn't do anything else but staring at the view. The tent has all the comfort you need, bathroom and...

Wow! I don't even know where to begin. First, the campsite - when you hear campsite you never imagine the conditions you will actually be living in. I've slept in city hotels that were worse-looking and less-clean. Good food cooked on the spot, great wine (and I'm picky with wine), ice cold beer flowing. All with amazing view and no...

We only spent one night in the safari camping site, but we found it very hard to leave. The set up is to die for: the tents are equipped with bathroom and shower and a nice little porch with a view to enjoy meals and coffee on with no concrete building in site - just sugar canes everywhere. It's so...

Roy, what can i say, he's the best guide to the safari ever. His level of expertise was astounding. The location was stupendous. To wake up to...

My husband and I visited Master Campers for our one year anniversary. For that we were willing to splurge a bit and I feel we got our money's worth. The airport transfer was a bit expensive but we didn't have to worry about finding the place. We were taken directly to the camp and given some time to rest. I...

We had an amazing stay at Master Campers. From arrival, we were very well looked after and the service was incredible. Roy was the most amazing guide...the things he could spot from so far away was amazing! We also found out he was the very talented chef that prepared our delicious meals - dining out on delicious food under the...
