My partner John and I stayed for 2 nights. The lodge was small (8 rooms), intimate and beautifully laid out, inside and out, with tasteful furnishings and wonderful candlelights lighting the place romantically after dark. We have stayed at other lodges, but the personal attention we received here, in particular the lunches and dinners together with staff at different venues around the lodge, were second to none.
The safari drives were a fantastic experience, we saw all of the big 5 and much more, and our guide Steve and tracker Albert were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about even the smallest of animals, as well as the bird life. Steve even made us see spotted hyenas in a more forgiving light!
John uses a wheelchair, and the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating from our initial email contact, sending us photos of the rooms, and then gave us the largest room and built a ramp specially for John.
The small team at Kambaku are not only highly professional but also warm and welcoming. We would happily stay again.
