The Dining Tent
Our big dining tent has large windows that open on three sides to let the desert breeze cool the air in summer. The view arcs from south-west to north-west, across an expanse of sand, and provides year-round views of the sun setting over distant mountains.
We serve your meals in the big tent, and tea and coffee and cool drinks are available on your arrival and throughout the evening. You can relax and enjoy a cup of tea, chat with fellow travellers, and take in the amazing view.
We serve dinner after sunset in summer and around 7.00pm in winter.
Breakfast is served at 7.00am.
