Kangaluna Camp has been developed by its owners from a lifetime of experience on how to best live in this environment and dry climate.  The only water source for the camp is rain water collected from the sky. Techniques are used for water 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.  Recycled materials were used in the construction and furnishing of the campsite, giving it a tastefully rustic look.

The Camp has a central dining room which is mostly open sided but closed during inclement weather. 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. The night sky is very clear and bright at Kangaluna and guests are able to use the large magnification telescope to view the stars, Saturn, Jupiter and the moon.
