Good evening Lesley, Thanks for taking the time to submit your feedback following your recent stay with us at Wilpena Pound Resort, in the spectacular Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park. It's great to read that you enjoyed the glamping tent in the Ikara Safari Camp. It is perfect at this time of year to enjoy a nice beverage next to a fire outside the tent's - enjoying the serenity of the environment and the clear skies. Thanks again, Best Regards, Alistair Rasmussen, Deputy General Manager.
