Set in a secluded meadow alongside a brook, Mukota (inspired by the Zimbabwean breed of pig) is a beautifully rustic safari tent with bundles of quirks, making it a fun and different place for a family adventure.
What Mukota lacks in size, it definitely makes up for in eccentricity. The smallest of three magnificent safari tents, Mukota is named after a Zimbabwean fine breed of pig and Africa is hinted at throughout. The open plan living space, with its African inspired furniture is the perfect place to relax. The bespoke fitted kitchen, built with care by a local craftsman, has everything you need to rustle up a feast using some of the fabulous local produce and the wood-fired oven is supplemented by a gas hob for those hot summer days – there’s even a fridge-freezer. One of the details that makes Mukota really stand out is its funky bathroom. This unique space has been imaginatively converted from a horse trailer, and comes complete with a shower, WC and basin. No need to traipse outside though - the bathroom is easily accessed via the back porch. The open plan living space, complete with log-burner and African inspired furniture leads out onto the deck - the perfect place to relax on the sun-loungers with a book and listen to the brook running by. It’s also the ideal lookout to keep an eye on the little ones when they are exploring during the long summer evenings. The sheltered area outside the tent is home to the firepit - great for cooking on as well as keeping you warm if the evening gets a little chilly. After a long day exploring, snuggling down could not be more comfortable, with a cosy double bedroom and a further twin bedroom.
There is hot water throughout and electric lighting in the living space and bathroom. The bedrooms are lit by battery powered lanterns and there are USB ports for those that need to charge a phone.
Mukota prides itself on being environmentally friendly and has been a finalist for awards such as The Dorset Environmental Award and BV Dairy Investing in Dorset Award.
For a large get together Mukota can be booked with Gascon and Murciano under Three Little Pigs.
Additional Information:

Two dogs are accepted at the site for a small additional charge. There are also hampers available, as well as cooked meals which can be arranged on booking.?
