Each of the twelve en suite safari bungalows are designed to expose guests to the sights and sounds of the bush around them and ceiling to floor screening allows guests to look out across the floodplains at sunrise from the comfort of their bed. As such there is no mini bar, TV, telephone or other electronic appliances to distract from the wilderness experience outside of the room.
Each room has powerpoints for recharging cameras, laptops etc. Binoculars, torch, bird and plant reference books are provided.
“The construction of the safari lodge affords guests an immersive, up-close-and-personal interaction with the environment – with minimal environmental impact and while still enjoying a high degree of comfort.”
Linen is 100% organic cotton with 500 thread-count. Each guests has a choice of three pillows. Each bathroom has a high pressure shower with solar hot water.
Three bungalows have bi-fold doors to allow the room to be air conditioned, however, this does seal the room from the sounds of the surrounding bush.
Three rooms can be air conditioned. These 3 rooms also have extended verandahs that allow additional swag bedding for one adult or two children. (A swag is Wild Bush Luxury’s version of a rollaway bed. Swags are the Australian bedroll that have been used by generations of Australian pioneers. It is a mattress that is inside a canvas cover and made up with quality sheets & pillows. They are custom made, comfortable and are suitable for children only). The remaining six have overhead fans and mesh screen walls that allow the coastal breezes to cool them.
Five rooms have twin bed configurations with king singles, with joinable bed frames. Four rooms have king beds.
The Kingfisher Suite is ideal for families. It is three times the size, featuring a king size bed and deluxe swags for the children. It offers private dining and there's oodles of space to relax while the wildlife comes to you.
Jabiru Retreat offers a more private ‘camp within a camp’ experience featuring two safari-style bungalows connected by a walkway leading to a private plunge pool and shaded deck directly overlooking the floodplains. Accommodating four to six guests in total – perfect for either two couples travelling together, a family with older children, multi generational families or small groups of friends needing their own exclusive space. Each bungalow offers king-split beds with the option of swag bedding for children.
Each safari suite is ensuite and raised on a timber platform, with space for sitting out the heat of day with a good book or watching the local wildlife.
With expansive floodplain views through Bamurru's trademark ceiling to floor mesh walls, it really does feel as if you are right amongst it with an intimate sense of connection to the wildlife and wilderness outside.
The communal guest lounge and dining area is the heart of the camp and a great place to meet fellow guests.
