we stayed for 3 nights at the River Camp. It was the most amazing experience from the high quality of the camp and wonderful food to the expert knowledge from our ranger Chris. The game drives were fantastic and really enjoyed the way that Chris shared his passion for the African wildlife with us. Thanks to all for a memorable... More

We stayed with friends in the Forest Lodge. From the moment of check in at Kenton we were treated like royalty! The boat ride to the camp adds another pleasant facet to the experience. The camp is beautifully set up. Lovely thatched dining area, beautiful walkways winding along indigenous bush to luxury tents with the most amazing "walk in" wardrobe... More

My family and I spent Saturday doing the day trip. The boat trip of about 45 minutes was most enjoyable, in a well maintained, smooth and comfortable boat. Birdlife, geology and geography well explained by our ranger Daniel. The riverine environment is lush and diverse, birds abound. Lunch at the Forest Camp was very good, really nice touch that you...

Had a fantastic time at Sibuya with my 4 children(7,9,10 and 14), father and mom-in-law. Ranger knowledge was 5star as was the service. Highly recommended especially for families. Game viewing was great and lions / rest of the animals were in amazing condition.
