The luxurious tented camp consists of en-suite tents overlooking the beautiful Busanga Plains, next to the expansive plains and tree-studded islands where fig trees and wild date palms draw their nutrients from the remains of giant anthills.  Take a refreshing dip in the pool or sunbathe on the wooden deck whilst taking in the resplendent landscape. Busanga is a special place, like no other you will encounter in Africa.
