There are various tents on the premises, all nicely tucked away in the bush. All tents have an outside bathroom: shower and bath in the open air:...

I have literally just returned today but want to make sure I do not forget as we had such a lovely time.

We really enjoyed the 3 nights we spend at BLC - the nature, the tents, the staff and owners as well as the spectacular mountain view during the day and stars during the night. The owners have also donated a leopard research center at the premises. Will be back!
