Kati Kati Camp 2 is no way near the highest priced camp in the Serengeti, but it had the least customer focus of the five places we stayed in pur 10 day safari. On our late arrival at Kati Kati Camp 1 we were told we had to go to Kati Kati Camp 2, thirty minutes away even though our names were in the manifest at Kati Kati camp 1. No where on our guide's paperwork did it indicate in which camp we were due. Surely if Kati Kati have more than one camp, their paperwork should specify this. There are also few signposts, almost none to anything so it is not surprising that it took many wrong turns and a wrong camp before our Guide Nimrod found Kati Kati 2. Thus we arrived near dark at 7:10pm, (and we understand it is less safe for the staff to get hot water to the tent for our showers), they begrudgingly said they would bring hot water to our tent- although the policy is no showers once dinner starts at 7:30pm . They skipped induction. There is also less opportunity to mingle with other guests except sitting apart around a fire as there is no lounge area- which we had in the other accommodation of the trip. The overall impression is that the guests are a bit of an inconvenience. Only one of the staff made a smile, which is also unlike all the other places we have been to in Africa.
