The unit is equipped with an energy friendly solar power system for the lighting, a gas burner for food preparation, as well as a 90 liter solar powered fridge/freezer to store food and drinks. Two outside braai areas are also available. No fire wood is provided. Inside the unit are two single beds with mattresses and bedding. Extra bedding is provided. Two additional stretchers are available on request. The unit will not be serviced, but only cleaned on departure and before arrival. A shower with a gas geyser will ensure that there is hot water available. The unit is also equipped with a wash basin on the outside. In front of the unit is a waterhole which can be illuminated by the residents after dark in order to enjoy game viewing from the comfort of the porch.
