Standard Tent

The camp consists of 39 luxury tents, positioned in a cluster around the waterhole. Each has a private veranda or balcony that overlooks the waterhole, and all chalets are connected to the main buildings with stone pathways that wind through the landscaped grounds.

The spacious tents feature an en suite bathroom with hot and cold running water and a flush toilet. Additional children's beds or cots can be added on request.


The Kashoggi Bar and lounge is located in the old manager's house and offers a blazing fireplace - creating the ideal spot for a warm evening nightcap.

The Waterhole Bar is built in the style of a game-viewing hide and overlooks the waterhole, making for excellent viewing while you sip on a drink.

The swimming pool offers a place where you can cool off and have some fun with the children while the extensive landscaped grounds are ideal for a quiet afternoon stroll.


The Rhino Restaurant is housed in what used to be the manager's house and features floor to ceiling windows that overlook the waterhole. Breakfast and lunch take the form of a buffet, and offer a range of international options to choose from as well as many vegetarian choices. Dinner is served in table d'hôte style and is accompanied by a salad buffet, soup, entrée and dessert.

Once again, vegetarians will find ample dishes to suite their tastes. Sweetwaters Serena Camp sources the majority of their meat, diary, fruits and vegetables from the communities surrounding the reserve. Special children's meals can be arranged on request.
