The focus of a stay at Bamurru is on the environment around the camp and the wildlife and birdlife to which it is home. Each individual safari suite is designed to blend with the surrounding landscape and, as such, exposes guests to the sights and sounds of the bush, whether it is the haunting call of a Whistling Kite, the raucous cacophony from the Blue-winged Kookaburras as dawn breaks or the sound of a full grown buffalo splashing its way through the floodplains. The morning chorus of tens of thousands of Magpie Geese, after whom the camp is named, is an experience in itself.

With no telephones, TVs, CD players or the typical features of a hotel room, the focus is on creature comforts - a supremely comfortable bed, 100% cotton linen, large soft bathtowels, a high pressure shower and lots of space. With just 9 safari suites built amongst the savannah bush fringing the floodplains, the camp is exclusive and guests will not see other tourists on the property.
