The Camp has a central dining room which is mostly open sided but closed when the weather is not so perfect. The camp is a wonderful place to relax, walk and observe the nature which lives in harmony with our presence.
The open Mallee Woodland environment is home to many animals that still use their original tracks through the camp, and over a hundred species of birds frequent the area. Recycled materials were used in the construction and furnishing of the campsite, giving it a tastefully rustic look.
Kangaluna Camp has been developed by its owners from a life time of experience on how to best live in this environment and dry climate. Rain water is collected from the roofs and is the only water source. Techniques are used for its preservation but you still have private showers and flushing toilets.
The luxury safari tents are set in the stunning Mallee wilderness region of the Gawler Ranges in South Australia. This is perfect for the nature lover who really wants to avoid from tourist areas and experience some of South Australia’s finest scenery and wildlife.
The curved roofs are designed to cool the tents as they always keep the air flowing. No vegetation has been removed from the site but the camp was designed and built using the natural fire breaks that the trees in this place create for their own protection.
If you wish to experience an interesting and safe “Wild Camp” experience, we will accommodate you in our Swagon, a renovated covered wagon with a swag bed where you can gaze at the stars all night long!
We have an 8 inch computer controlled telescope at the camp. The night sky is very clear and bright at Kangaluna so we are able to use a large magnification on the telescope to view objects. Saturn, Jupiter and the moon are the stargazers favourites because of their features.
It is a great surprise to find that it is often possible to take a photo of the moon using the telescope with your small digital cameras.
