Green coucal, gorgeous bush shrike, pinkthroated twinspot and African broadbill are among the "specials" resident throughout the year.
It is one of South Africa's most superb safari camps with luxury-tented rooms with en-suite bathrooms.The entire camp is raised up on wooden decks inter-linked by walkways under the canopies of giant fig trees.
