We have been fortunate to have stayed at a number of excellent safari camps throughout Africa and Kaingo delivered what you would hope and expect from a camp of this nature. What sets Kaingo apart is the staff, they all work so hard in making your experience here special and in turn this gives the camp a very special atmosphere which makes you feel at ease minutes after arriving.
Andrew was our guide for the four days we stayed and his knowledge and humour was a highlight of this wonderful stay. Couple this with Izzy and Yvonne ensuring that those moments you weren’t enjoying the wildlife were spent eating or drinking something delicious - we particularly enjoyed the lunches taken on our deck watching the Hippos getting a tan…………….we are still working on shedding those extra pounds.
Apart from the Game drives there’s the added dimension of the hides and for the more adventurous a night out up in the Elephant hide (thanks Peter) - an activity we would highly recommend. Simply put if you want to experience the true magic of safari and meet some very special people look no further than Kaingo – thanks guys for a great four days & two Pel’s………… brilliant.
