Ikara Safari CampWilpena Pound, South Australia

Camping in the South Australian bush doesn’t have to involve forgotten flysheets and creepy-crawly catastrophes. Ikara offers top-notch safari tents – 15 in all, surrounding a central canopy where guests gather for dinner and drinks. All of them boast all the mod cons, from proper beds to en suites.
