This is a warm, nice, friendly permanent camp just at the outside of. And a luxury one. It is situated just outside the gate at the Eastern side of Amboseli national park. Often it is a good advice to stay insi the parks, but at Kibo it doesn´t matter since it is just 5 minutes drive and no line-up in... More

Staff were great, but the tents were very dusty, there was shower problem in our tents (luckily it was sorted but not a good impression for a first timer), its close to the park, food is buffet but you have too many salads and less main course meals, overall stay was good for a low budget vacation.

We spent 2 nights at Kibo Safari Camp just a few weeks ago with Dawn 2 Dusk safaris. The camp is located only a few minutes drive from the gate of Amboseli NP, making it a perfect base from where you can explore the park. The tents are very spacious and comfortable. Our tents was situated on the 1st row... More

Its a really nice place with a great view on the whole Kilimanjaro. You also have a small nice pool. The food is really good and the service is incredible! We had a lot of fun there and a great Safari around the place.

Great place to stay with an excellent view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the food was pretty good. Very short drive to Amboseli National Park gate, so it was easy to get there before sunrise. Ask for rooms with a view of the mountain.

Kibo Safari Camp is simply awesome. We could get a clear view of Mt Kilimanjaro from our tent and get to Ambesoli for safaris within minutes. Food was great, with lots of variety. Ambience perfect. Kibo certainly lives up to its reputation. Plus Ambesoli NP offers a great deal of wildlife, with zebras, elephants etc grazing in front of the... More

Kibo is a very pleasant camp well situated at the gate of'Amboseli NP, with convenient access. The location at the foot of Kilimandjaro is stunning. Be sure to ask for a tent on the first row ("cheetah run") to enjoy a direct view when the sky is clear. The food is décent, buffet style, there's plenty of choice and it's... More

Located right outside Ambisoli National Park, the Kibo Safari Camp is extremely convenient for game drives within the park. Though we only stayed one night, it was awesome to wake up in the morning with a view of Mt. Kilimanjaro from our front porch. The tented camps were nicely decorated and comfortable.
