The best way to have everything within the reach of your hand is stay in their campsite. The campsite is easily accessible from when you drive in/get dropped off by a car.
If you arrived with your car, you can drive through a little low stream (we didn’t have 4×4 and we didn’t have any problems doing that) and once you’re on another side, you can park next to where your tent and the fireplace will be set up.
If you get dropped off by a taxi, you will walk less than 5mins, across a wooden path through the stream, and you will find yourself right where the campsite is.
When you stay in the camp, you will also be right next to the canopy walk and a stream.
The campsite has basic facilities of a drop down toilet and a fresh spring water shower. You’re provided with the wood for the fireplace, which means you can do some cooking over the fire.
In the night you will be guarded by an armed ranger, who will make sure no wild animals are interrupting your sleep. The campsite is often visited by herds of elephants so you may hear very interesting noises in the night that will definitely add up to your Ngare Ndare camping adventure!
Make sure you pack up warm clothes because in the night it gets really cold. During the day out in the sun it can get quite hot, but if you want to escape the heat, just head to the shade for a bit.
