Accommodation close to Paihia in the Bay of Islands, Northland, New Zealand. An African Safari Experience.

Koos & Sandra Lombard, originally from South Africa, decided to create a typical African Safari Experience on their farm in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand.

After intensive planning and a lot of hard work, they are now proud to invite you to come and visit their piece of paradise in the subtopical Far North of New Zealand.

Guests are accommodated in spacious Safari Tents and the highlight of the evening is when you or your friends lights the bonfire in the African boma. Relaxation in “Africa style” .

We invite you to come and experience true African hospitality in New Zealand.

    We arrived late the park was full but sandra was happy for us to squeeze on a spot as we just had the van. She was very friendly and inviting. Facility's were perfect for what we needed and prise was $20pp for the van. Highly recommend.
    Nothing beats being able to make a fire outdoors, cooking some food on it and relaxing around it with a nice cold drink. Great place to stay, all the amenities you will need and great customer service provided by the owners. It was lovely dealing with you Sandra. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

    What a beautiful place. So peaceful with the little stream running along the campsite and only 20 min from Paihia! Really comfortable camping here. Have great showers (with hot water) and a little kitchen area to cook your food (if you need a stove). Best thing about it are the little bbq’s bear each tent. They have a bonfire pit which I’m sure will be lit when there’s a few people booked in there. Sandra - thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with us. Added to our list of best camping spots in NZ.
