If you love the idea of sleeping under canvas in a stunning natural environment below a vast South Australian sky but you're not so keen on "roughing it", there is a new development that will fulfill your aspirations. If the idea of pitching a tent and lugging supplies has no appeal, this is the ultimate outback camping experience for you - with a few of life's modern luxuries included.
Ikara Safari Camp offers a new ‘glamping’ experience. Located within the Flinders Ranges National Park, the Camp offers guests 15 premium Safari Tents complete with king size beds, en-suite bathrooms, luxury amenities, power and air-conditioning. Set among river red gums, native pines and abundant wildlife, Ikara Safari Camp will be the perfect base for exploring the National Park.
NOW THAT'S A TENT
Our luxe safari tents do not scrimp on the modern comforts we expect in day to day life. Complete with luxurious bedding, modern en suite bathrooms, power for lighting, a small refrigerator and the all-important air conditioning - these tents are anything but roughing it.
Each tent is 4.2m x 6.0m and made from insulated canvas with reverse air conditioning and a ceiling fan to cope with both the outback summers and the cooler months. Guests will find them a very comfortable home away from home with king beds for doubles and twins, quality linens and bedding, bedside tables and lamps, luggage storage, a mini bar, in-room safe and tea and coffee making facilities. The fully tiled en-suite bathrooms include quality fittings and will include a vanity and shower plus a separate toilet.
The Safari Tents also will offer amenities such as hair dryers, power outlets and reading lamps, but no televisions allowing guests to really switch off and relax. Daily room servicing will be provided.
A deck at the front of the tents will allow guests to enjoy the late afternoon light on the spectacular rock formations of the Flinders Ranges while no doubt enjoying a glass of fine South Australian wine.
Imagine yourself kicking back on your deck, sipping a cool drink and sunset at the end of an energetic day exploring the National Park. Each tent has a shaded deck area with seating just for this purpose. Not a bad way to idle away the early evening.
