Stay along the banks of the Shishamba River overlooking a lagoon that attracts a variety of wildlife during the dry season. This seasonally open camp offers raised platforms and canvas-walled tents. A spacious open-air viewing deck allows for under-the-stars dining and wildlife viewing to the water all day. This area attracts elephant, puku, impala, warthog, zebra, crocodile, and hartebeest. Predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena also frequent the area and the birdlife is prolific along the water's edge.

Four upscale tents offer en-suite bath facilities and private views of the plains. Each tent gives a unique view of the camp from the private veranda raised 3m above the ground. Two tents offer two twin beds and two offer king beds. A tall fig tree provides shade to the main camp lounge that overlooks the sandy beach along the river's edge. Guided walks depart during the cooler part of the morning to avoid the heat of the day, and staying at camp allows for multiple wildlife sightings as well.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
