Stay in luxury ger camps throughout your trip for an extra bit of comfort. Let us know if you’d like an ensuite ger or private wooden lodge. Or go the full hog with a “back-to-nature” eco camp, highly recommended, mostly for their delicious homemade meals (who doesn’t love a bit of freshly made bread and local berry jam in the morning!).
