I would recommend anyone going for Safari in Africa to stay a night or two in a tented camp. The special atmosphere of living in a tent (where you smell and hear the nature around you) is spiced by the exciting sounds of cikadas and lions roaring in the night!
We had a comfortable stay at Kati Kati, situated a little off in the park, with a small track leading around to the back of a couple of hills. The view towards the south-west and a water hole is perfect. You can sit outside the tent and see Zebras, Gnus and Elephants going down to dring in the morning/evening just across the field in front of you (no fence!)
When walking the path to our tent after dinner, a Hyena looked curiously at us from just a couple of yards off!
Good but rustic food. Nice service minded staff and comfortable beds and equipment in the tent (standard porcelain water toilet!) But it IS a tent, so you shouldn't expect 5-star luxury hotel standard!
