Each of the hotel’s four hand-crafted safari tents spans 14 ft by 28 ft, meaning they’re more like a mini-kingdom than a mere bedroom. Stake out seats on your private veranda, loll about in your king-size bed – featuring a snug Snoozer mattress – and relax in your little seating area, which has a dressing table. Each tent is graced with campaign furniture and the finest cotton linens; keen twitchers will be grateful for the pair of binoculars and book on birds left inside each tent. The tents have a bathroom with a pressure pump, hot and cold water, commode, overhead shower, a sink and stash of Forest Essentials bath products. The bathroom and tent both have oil radiators (you’ll only need these in winter). Clever Dera Amer really has thought of everything: additional features include a locker, luggage tray, multi-plug adaptor with USB sockets, an iPod dock and hanging space for your safari togs. Each room can accommodate an extra bed or a cot can be added on request.
