Look out across the Southern Ishasha sector, which is renowned for its tree-climbing lion and white and black colobus monkey, and marvel at the endless fields of yellow savanna grasses, towering forests of green trees, and wildlife, living in harmony with their surroundings. Ishasha Camp has been designed to offer luxury and comfort, without disturbing the landscape.
Accommodation is in 10 canvas tented rooms, each boasting uninterrupted views of the nearby Ntungwe River from the private verandahs, with en suite hot bush showers, and netted canopy beds. The rooms open out onto the central lounge, a thatched area with an outdoor fireplace for those chilly nights, with spectacular views over the river and forests for romantic dinners.
Taking an open safari through the bush is not to be missed, even if it means waking early to find bathing hippo, lions waking, and birds calling to monkey from the tree canopies. Personal chefs can prepare a tasty bush breakfast at the side of the Ntungwe River, and you can visit a local herbalist and craftsman in his grass-thatched home at the edge of the national park.
