We had an amazing time, we still think about it and miss our time there. Very good rangers and trackers, we got all big 5 in the first 1 or 2 days out of the 4 spent there. We stayed in the bigger villa which was impressive, with private swimming pool and outside shower. Staff was very helpful and service... More

We loved every minute at King's Camp. The staff were wonderful and did everything they could to make us feel so welcome and special. The food was great every meal and it was varied across our 4 days there. The safari gave a chance to spend time looking at all of the big 5 and so many more animals! The... More

We just completed an amazing 3 day visit to Kings Camp. My first safari trip a year ago was at Londolozi lodge in the Sabi Sands. Kings Camp is every bit as luxurious and far exceeded my expectations - for service, ambiance, and the opportunity to see all of the Big 5 and more. The rooms are enormous at Kings... More

Had a great time on the drives with Jade and Albert, they showed us some amazing sights, and had some great conversations. The staff provided 5 star service all the way, from the welcome drinks, the bubble baths after... More

From the moment of our arrival, when we were warmly greeted by the entire Kings Camp staff, we knew that our stay was going to be really special.

Kings Camp far exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived by small plane at the local runway and were met by Lodge staff who drove us to the Camp - we were impressed.

We were there from 5/25 to 5/27. The lodge is gorgeous and the staff is outstanding. Mosquito netting around the bed, quality linens with a pillow top mattress pad, outdoor shower for 2, and a hot bubble bath awaiting you when you get back from the afternoon drive. Jade and Albert were out guide and tracker. They were doing more... More

My husband and I stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon. We had heard all sorts of wonderful reviews about how people that go to King's Camp return year after year and were wondering why anyone in their right mind would want to spend 15 hours to travel to the same place every year. We are now those... More
