The campsite is set around The Hub where the cars are parked, with a well equipped kitchen, Wi-Fi and undercover gathering area. The walk to it varies between a 7 - 20 minutes from the 4 safari tents. They are remote and in their own peaceful, secluded woodland, the only sounds you hear are the local wildlife which include red squirrels, badgers, stoats, roe deer and variety of birds, even a honey buzzard has been spotted.

Ruberslaw is a conical hill which stands on the south bank of the River Teviot, between the towns of Hawick and Jedburgh. It is a must to climb Ruberslaw Hill and head down to the local pub for lunch afterwards. Hiking trails are abundant in this area and there are also great opportunities for horse riding. The area is also steeped in history, a 150 ft tower to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo being one of the attractions. The mill town of Hawick is close by too.
