The bush camp at Deelfontein consists of three traditional thatched stone-and-mud huts, a lapa, a boma, and toilet facilities. The ruins of the old workers houses were renovated when the camp was built in 2006, and the other buildings added in amongst the existing trees and shrubs, ensuring that the camp blends in with the surroundings and affording privacy. The camp is accessible by vehicle.

Environmentally friendly materials and systems have been chosen to minimise the impact of tourism on nature, and to save energy and water. Only electrical light is available, no plugs, but the accommodation is comfortable and offers an unforgettable experience in this pristine and secluded part of the Dome. Hot water is supplied by two donkeys.  

Two of the huts have two rooms each, are equipped with furniture for storage and hanging clothes, and sleep 6 persons. The smaller room has one stack bed with mattresses, the larger two stack beds. These huts also have a bathroom with shower and basin each. The third hut has a single room with two stack beds, as well as a bathroom. The huts are shielded from each other and the lapa by the indigenous vegetation. In the lapa you will find the barbeque facilities, stove, sink and seating for 16 persons. The boma has an open fireplace with benches around it, as well as a kitchen. The toilet building houses two modern composting toilets and two urinals. Please ensure that you study the directions for use!
