Mayukuyuku means 'water hitting the rocks' and was the name given to the piece of land where the camp was built in 2006 as there are numerous rapids in the river nearby.

This is a very friendly, lovely 'back to nature' camp with a very homely feel to it and welcoming, professional managers and staff. There are just four tented rooms ranged along the river bank with hammocks on private verandas and comfortable large beds with mossie nets inside the rooms. En-suite bathrooms made from grass and bamboo are attached, open to the sky and with the comforts of a flush toilet and hot water for the shower.

There is a central dining and lounge/bar area where meals are served under a shade roof, lit at night by a myriad of colourful lamps and candles. Pre-dinner drinks can be enjoyed on comfy chairs around the camp fire by the riverbank. 

The camp is open all year and the seasons bring with them movements in the wildlife. The green season of January to March brings with the rains a variety of species including wild dogs and sable antelope. April and May are good for all species then the winter months of June - August, though cold can produce excellent sightings all round and good for seeing otters. September and October are the hottest months and good for wild dog sightings again. November and December are still hot but with showers and many mammals have their young. The months of April, May, November and December are particularly good for photography.
