Bed is comfortable, staff very helpful. A nice, quiet and peaceful location.
Warm at night inside the tent.
The setting is very nice. The dinner was tasty.
The communication was very poor. A few days beforehand I contacted the camp for information on how to get to St Louis after my stay in the desert and received no reply. This was very annoying as I was travelling alone and wanted to plan my journey. When I left the desert I was quoted 30,000 cfa for a private transfer to St Louis. I thought this was very expensive and took a bus instead from Kébémer but factor in the cost of transfers if you are a solo traveller on a budget. The staff put me in a taxi to get to the gare routière de Kébémer but instead I arrived at the gare routière de Lompoul and had to negotiate another taxi to get to Kébémer. Activity wise, I paid 15,000 CFA for a one hour hike which I thought was very expensive. My guide didn't want me to tell any other staff that he was taking me for a hike. He said he was doing me a favour as I would be charged much more as a solo traveller if I went with one of the others. I found this suspicious. Even when I went to the bar to get a bottle of water for the hike he warned me not to tell anyone where I was going. Some complimentary soap in the bathroom would have been nice.
the dinner was amazing!
The food was amazing! The staff was so friendly and upgraded us to a suite free of charge. It is a lovely place to spend a night.
