This camp is beyond belief. Never did we think we would find such a great place from all points of views: location, beautiful and comfortable tents done with taste, no frills, chandeliers in cristal or so called oriental carpets but subtle tones, natural weaves blending in the surrounding nature. Mina and Chris genuine care for the guests, always there when...
