Safari tents come with either a queen bed or two double beds, as well as tables, chairs, a desk, and storage trunk.

Outside, each safari tent features an outdoor picnic table and benches, grill and fire pit. Cooking supplies are not provided and are the responsibility of the guests.
Safari tents have their own bathroom and shower house that is communal between other Safari tent patrons.
Finally, there are circular Canyon Yurts (for Meetings) and Adventure Yurts (for sleeping) that are available. Adventure yurts sleep up to 4 people with one queen bed and one twin day bed with twin trundle.

The Adventure Yurt each include a private picnic table and fire pit with removable grill for both grill dining and a campfire.
