This camp can be reached by off road type vehicles (ie. there is a pole bridge to cross and some sand (100m) driving required on the last 1km to the camp. Make sure to deflate your tyres to 1.8 bar after turning off from the C49 onto the sandy tracks, this will help you to navigate better over the sandy tracks and help prevent getting stuck!).

The camp can also be reached by flying in, to the Lianshulu Airstrip, 20min away. A shuttle service can then be arranged beforehand. No car rental services.

This camp prefers to have reservations pre-booked to ensure nobody is turned back because they might be fully booked, especially in season June-July, but you are welcome to enquire at the camp any time or phone them!

The rainy season here is from late December to the end of March.
