This is a great camp, the welcome and farewell from the staff are memorable and beautiful. the famous Pilate absolutely deserves his legendary status. We came with a specific mission to photograph wild dogs (this was our third trip in three years to attempt this) and Pilate went way beyond what could be expected to make this happen, including missing dinner and going out tracking at night on foot alone. And boy did he deliver!!!! With great thanks also to Quest. We also saw leopard (treed by the wild dogs), ellies, birds and the usual game animals. The tents are very comfortable (with bucket shower) and your verandah looks out on the river which was somewhat dry at the time we went. The food is healthy and not too much which can be a problem in other camps where you end up going home weighing much more than when you started.
Of the 10 different camps we have stayed in so far, Kwai is the one I would recommend most highly.
