You will sleep in airy cottages made of stone, wood, thatch and canvas. We have only eight in total meaning priavacy and intimacy throughout your whole experience here. Each cottage is unique and varies in size and feel. All except one are ensuite with large baths made from black river stone and hadn't-crafted woodwork.


All are lovingly put together using materials found here, carefully curated soft-furnishings using organic, hand crafted and sometimes recycled materials. The cottages have 24 hour electricity (solar) for lighting and hot water, flushing toilets and bath/showers.  We have tried to create a peaceful environment that connects you to the bush combining all the important home comforts without losing the magic of this wild space.



We are delighted to share with you our newest addition to the lodge. The Little River Camp is made up of two luxurious cottages with stunning ensuite bathrooms, roomy verandas, a private dining area, bar and fire pit all nestled on the river bank along from the main lodge.


Eating is an important part of any holiday and we take great pleasure in offering up home-grown food that is as nutritious as it is delicious. Sophie is a French foodie with a fantastic team of chefs and assistants, so the dining experience at El Karama is always fresh, hearty and creative. Guests are welcome to visit the Bush Kitchen whenever they like and can get involved in everything from harvesting fresh veggies from the 'shamba', collecting the eggs from her chickens, sharing recipes and kneading dough for the daily loaves! If you are Vegan, Vegetarian or have special requirements, we are always happy to create something tailor made.  For children we know exactly how important the right food at the right time is for you as a family.  Kids menus have been honed to a tee: think hot chocolate and banana rolls to coax little ones up at sunrise, early supper cooked out on the rocks and thermoses of soup with warm bread to keep everyone going on their adventures and marshmallows roasted on open fires!
