Kings Camp was the most amazing experience!!! We went on 3 morning and 3 evening game drives and saw every single animal we had hoped to see.... more than once! We were able to get really close to the animals, but never flet unsafe thanks to our guide and tracker, Cynet and Sam. They were amazingly friendly, knowledgeable, and excellent... More

I am remiss in posting this review so late. We honeymooned at King's Camp in December 2013 and it was glorious. It was our first time on safari and we couldn't have had a better experience. The staff was so friendly and wonderful. Our room (the honeymoon suite) was something out of Out of Africa. I have never done a... More

We recently spent 5 nights at Kings Camp during a trip to South Africa and were highly impressed with the whole experience. It was our first time on Safari and the staff at Kings Camp made it an exceptional experience. The attention to detail and thoughtful touches - such as a candle lit hot bath waiting for us after our... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. The room was pleasant, game drives were great and the food was nice. It wasn't as luxurious as other places we've been on safari - like Chitwa Chitwa - but it was still great. It was more like a hotel than a safari lodge. The spa facilities are ok,... More

Here's what my 11 year old daughter says, "you may think, when they tell you your schedule that waking up so early for a game drive isn't worth it, but believe me, it is." She's right! This was the first camp our family of three stayed at on our 11 day trip to South Africa. From the moment we arrived... More

We celebrated my husbands 80 birthday at Kings Camp with our son and 15 year old granddaughter. It was a wonderful family adventure. The guides and trackers made every effort to make sure we saw the big five plus African wild dogs. . The hotel staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and valued. It is... More

Spent 5 days at Kings Camp and loved every second. The hotel was absolutely stunning. Loved every second there. Felt completely pampered - the rooms were th most beautiful I have ever been in, and just outside your door your could find a kudu, a warthog, moneys, elephants and even a lion. My favorite part of the room was the... More

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
