Private camping is based at Acacia Camp, our village-based eco-camp for private camps, outdoor education and natural group retreats. The Camp is inspired by the famous East African safari camps, many of which are community-owned and managed, with the aim of blending in to the natural environment and having positive impact.
Situated on a 5000m2 hilltop, Acacia Camp boasts spectacular 360 degree views overlooking padi fields and the Ciherang river watershed all the way to its source at Cisadon 7km to the south in the Mega Mendung hills.
To preserve camp feel, Acacia Camp is situated where there is no vehicle access up to camp. Instead, all visitors need to walk 5-10 minutes along a good path which ascends through villages and padi fields. Porters are available to assist with bags (1 porter pp, max 20kg).
Facilities are simple but comfortable, intended in design and function as an expedition outdoor education base and natural camp retreat without the boundaries or restrictions of walls, unnecessary noise or light pollution. In keeping with eco-camp principles and practice, the camp is designed to minimize water & energy use, waste and noise. Electricity is available for charging mobile devices, with traditional lanterns providing safari-camp lighting during the night.
Facilities include a covered dining area with tables and benches (sitting up to 30 people to dine comfortably), bathrooms with clean mandi wash facilities, sit-down toilets and loo paper. Our field kitchen is restricted to idGuides staff – however upon advance request – a BBQ can be made available to use by guests. Our camping area has space for up to 20 tents.
