We loved our stay at Kibo Safari Camp! This camp is such a lush and comfortable stop just outside the gate to Amboseli. The tented rooms are very large and comfortable. As a lover of water, I really appreciated the drinking water tank provided in each room (rather than just a bottle or two). The staff were so friendly and welcoming. Meals were buffet and a good quality. Amboseli is a fantastic safari destination. Beyond views of Kilimanjaro, I saw more elephants, cheetahs, and lions here than in all of my previous safaris combined. The only downside is that there were only a few spots in the camp where you could see Kilimanjaro. I had expected the restaurant and bar to have clear views of it but that's not the case.

Kibo was an oasis! We were greeted warmly with hot towels after a long dusty drive, then shown to our safari tent. Staff was friendly and welcoming, the food was excellent, and the view of Kilamanjaro was inspiring. We tried massages and had a great spa experience for a very reasonable price. Some of our party tried the pool and got a thrill when a baboon stopped by for a drink! Proximity to Amboseli National Park makes this an ideal place to stay. This is the third game park I have visited and it was my favorite. So many majestic elephants! The camp provided us with a driver to bring us down from Nairobi and take us on our game drives in a pop up top safari vehicle. Robert was great - friendly and knowledgeable. 10/10 would recommend. Don’t bother with a safari company, book directly with the camp to save some money and ensure a great experience! The one sour note of our whole experience was 22 km of road construction leading to the camp. Hopefully that will be resolved soon so future visitors have an easy time.

I stayed here with 5 of my friends. When you arrive at reception you are blown away by how beautiful it is. The tented rooms were luxurious. The staff were so friendly. It is a 5 minute drive to the wonderful Amboseli park. Here we saw lots of elephants, hippo and lots more. Having Kilimanjaro in the background makes this camp a must. The food was buffet style. There was lots of variety and Milton made the best pizza!! A wonderful stay.

We were a small group of 12 staying at Kibo and some of us cried when we left. We felt really at home. The staff is really welcoming. The grounds are impeccable with a superbe view of the Kili Charles at reception was super nice. Took really good care of us Carole at the bar was our favourite. The tents are impeccable. The food was good.

Beautiful located only a kilometre away from kimana gate kibo safari camp is fantastic. We were welcomed by friendly staff and a delicious welcome drink and towel. Ours tent was quite spacious, immaculate and beautifully decorated, with the killimanjaro view, gives you that Out of Africa feeling. Buffets for all meals have variety of options and are quite delicious. The highlight was the live pizza station image having all this in the middle of the jungle. Ismael, lilian, lagat, faith all the staff at restraunt were so friendly and made us feel like home and comfortable. Pool and bar area is very lively and staff there are very welcoming like rest of the staff at the camp. There coffee selection was my personal favourite. Even moktails and cocktails menu is nice which are all reasonably priced. Special Thanks to the manager Charles who was always around to check on us. I would say as I travel a lot for work which gives me chance to stay in 5 star properties around the world, kibo has excellent standards for service. KIBO SAFARI CAMP is a place where staff are very well trained, highly professional and gives you that warm feeling that makes you feel home away from home. I can safely say kibo will always be my choice when visiting Amboseli.

We stayed 2 nights at Kibo Private Wing during our Safari with JT Safaris. It was a great choice...our tent faced Kilimanjaro so we had wonderful views. The tent was a real experince for us, it was clean and comfortable. The restaurant was great, the chef George was a lovely man, very friendly and helpful. He would prepare whatever we fancied. His pizzas were delicious! The swimming pool area was really nice...new, clean and warm. Kibo is a very good choice for a lodge in Amboseli....thanks for a very enjoyable stay.

An amazing setting with epic views of Kilimanjaro from our tent. The staff were the friendliest you'll ever meet and went above and beyond to ensure we wanted for nothing throughout the week we were there. Facilities were second to none - comfortable beds, hot water in all tents and perfectly clean and well maintained conveniences.

We stayed at Kibo for 2 nights, and had a wonderful experience. Accommodation is really amazing. It’s unimaginable to be in the middle of nature and stay in a place which is so friendly with the environment and still comfortable as a hotel in the city. Shower was perfect and staff would daily open and close insect screens. Hospitality is wonderful as well. Looking forward for our next visit.
