The waterways are either forded by vehicles or crossed on rustic log bridges. The camp faces out over the Xakanaxa lagoon on the Khwai River, where boat trips lead into the sinuous channels of the Delta; one of Africa's greatest natural wonders.

Game in the area includes just about everything imaginable - all the Moremi game can be seen on the game drives, including tsessebe, lechwe, wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, elephant, sable and giraffe. The predators are prevalent and lion are often heard calling in the early morning. Leopard, wild dog and hyena are often sighted. Birding in the area is excellent, especially in the spring and summer months when the migrants are breeding. To the north are the world-famous heronries which attract large numbers of breeding storks and herons. In the summer months the fishing is very good. Mainly bream (Tilapia) but there are also tiger fish. Boat trips and game drives are conducted by a team of experienced professional guides.
