The vast majority of accommodation in the region is locally owned and they purchase local products too. They are usually built with traditional materials and techniques (thatched huts). They are called Campements, although its shape is that of a bungalow style of huts, as if it were a typical home in the area.

Despite being comfortable and hospitable, the standards of comfort of the campements may not be of everyone's tastes. The shower water is always cold, because the average temperature is high, and in most cases is 'bucket and gourd' instead of 'gravity'. Sometimes toilets are outside and in some cases are latrines. However, these elements, far from being a problem, tend to motivate tourists even more, since it is closer to the every day in Africa.
