After staying in over ten '5 star' safari lodges in 4 African countries, I have expectations regarding amenities, services and operations in top level lodges. King's Camp does not rate this high. A few examples. The bathroom had no bar of soap, no Kleenex, no slippers(floors are cold polished concrete). Cheap and ill fitting cotton bath robes where I would... More

We had just 48 hours at King's Camp in September, but it was 48 hours never to be forgotten! The camp is beautiful with every luxury included- from beautiful, unique rooms that could be in a movie set to lovely beds and fabulous food. Pollen met us and showed us to our building (#2- wonderful). There is deet bug spray... More

My husband and I spent the weekend at Kings Camp (10-12 Oct 2014). I can only say that it was an absolutely fantastic experience. The staff were always friendly and helpful, the food was wonderful, the rooms beautiful and the game viewing experience out of this world!!! We were very lucky with our game viewing - we saw wild dog,... More

We spent 4 nights at Kings Camp in Sept 2014 and had a fabulous stay. The location of the camp is amazing - you really are in the middle of the bush. The staff were incredibly friendly and the food we had was delicious - lunch was definitely my favourite meal due to the sightings at the water hole (one... More

We arrived at Kings Camp directly from another camp, staying 4 days at each. Kings Camp is a beautiful, relatively new facility, with colonial decor, lawns with wildlife grazing, a large pool, and huge rooms with a giant chandelier in it. The bedding was wonderful and we loved the outdoor shower. Warren and Lisha, the managers are extremely nice and... More

Simon and I spent 4 days at King's Camp and enjoyed every minute. Our room was spotless with decor reminiscent of a movie set in colonial times. The food was either hearty and plentiful or gourmet with rich, smaller portions depending on the theme of the night. The staff were extremely polite and efficient and our ranger Remember and tracker... More

We spent 5 nights at Kings Camp starting Aug. 31, 2014. This was our first safari experience so we were excited to arrive around 1 PM on our first day. After that afternoon's game drive we had already seen 4 of the big 5. Our ranger was Dean and our tracker was Albert and they were an outstanding team. Over... More

This was our fourth visit to KC and, sadly, probably our last. We arrived mid-afternoon to be greeted by Pollen and were given a form to fill in our personal details - we had been there the previous August and all our details are on file, so there was no 'Welcome Back' as there had been on previous occasions.

We were booked at Kings Camp by Mahlatini (http://www.mahlatini.com). Everything from our hotel pickup in JNB to our "small plane" ride to our stay and our food was top notch. I highly reccommend this place
