Mufasa: Glamping in the bush
We had a great time in our stay in mufasa tent. Hot bath in the bush at night was an amazing experience. There were lots of firewood to make a fire. We had the place for ourselves and enjoyed privacy very much. Unfortunately, the tent zip wasn't working properly so we ended up having a possum in our tent in the middle of the night but still we forgot to put food in the fridge so it attracted the possum. He was really chubby and cute actually :) Another thing was we couldn't make the hot water work in the kitchen or shower. Apart from these two things, overall we had an amazing experience. Thanks Kieran for being a great host.

The site was awesome with plenty of tracks to explore! Kieran was accomodating with our group arriving over 2 days and pointed out some great lookout spots over the valleys! Will be back again!

cabin immersed in the trees
Amazing cabin situated on beautiful land! The place was incredible, and better than the photos. We saw plenty of stars at night on top of the hill, had the most amazing showers out the front, and enjoyed walking around the property listening to the birds.

Simba: Camping in the Bush
Bush camping with picturesque dam
Our experience at Hakuna Matata was fun thanks to the people we were with, the weather and the picturesque common grounds that we played games and drank a few beers on. We booked on late notice and were able to secure a spot which was a relief during the New Year period. Unfortunately the campsite we booked online was not the campsite we stayed on and instead of green grass we booked, we were put far back in the bush on a recently cleared piece of land. Although nice to be surrounded by bush, this site was bushy, unkept, full of tree stumps and dusty. When we asked to be relocated to the camp site we actually booked, we were told it had 30 people arriving on it that day so it wasn't possible. I believe the property to be more of a party destination rather than a relaxed campsite for couples but if you're after a party with mates where you can be kept alone, this is perfect. Kieran has a cool property and there's awesome athletic obstacle courses around the property, which could benefit from some upkeep. The property is how it appears in the pictures however it needs some upkeep and maintenance so guests can experience it to the fullest. You aren't camping near the dam and I wouldn't say it's a short stroll down there but it provided a great backdrop and was nice enough for cooling off. Good potential but could use some maintenance. For example, the pontoon in the dam was unusable as it was covered in bird poo.

We’ll be back!
I booked the site for 20 people, including children, to celebrate my husband’s 30th. Many of the guests were first time campers, and the site was perfect. You can’t tell how beautiful it is in the images, and totally isolated. The toilet was very clean. Kieran was a great host, checked we were all good and then left us to enjoy the party. The road up is quite rocky and difficult for small cars but doable with caution. We had a great weekend so thank you Kieran!

Kiara: Cosy, Private Cabin
Quiet minibreak in treetop setting
We booked a mini-break at Kiara to get away from city noise for a night. The cabin is accessed via a short uphill drive on a gravel road, with parking directly alongside, The view is lovely from the deck through the trees. The cabin was very clean & tidy, the bed was comfortable & decor minimal but thoughtful. The toilet was in a separate building about 5 meters away. Plates, cutlery & pots are provided with a bbq as a 'stovetop'. You need to bring an eski for your food items. It was really peaceful & quiet & we left feeling well rested. Would definitely book again.

We had such a lovely weekend ! We stayed at the Simba camp which had a bbq and pizza oven and Kieran our host was so friendly and accomodating. Kieran had gathered all the firewood for us to light a fire in the evening which was so fun. Was a great escape from the busy life in Sydney with stunning views. Would 100% come back.

What a great hidden camping spot. Would have never known this spot was here. Kieran was super welcoming and easy going on arrival times. He showed us all the available camping spots and we got to pick our favourite. Couldn't tell if there was anyone else around it was so quiet and peaceful. Great to have the chairs and table on the camp spot too.
