Absolutely the best experience I could have ever imagined!
The service is impeccable and the tents are wonderful. I am not sure exactly what I was expecting as a camp but whatever it was Kikoti blew away and preconceived ideas of what my experience would be "camping" in the bush.
You are greeted by such a wonderful and caring staff to a beautifully kept camp site. The lounge/bar area as well as the dinning area are perfectly "African" in decor. The bar has hand carved animals at it's base with large sofas for you to sit back on and enjoy a beverage after your long day out on a game drive. The dinning area just as well might be a five star restaurant with it's linen table cloths and place settings and the staff takes great care with preparing and serving your meals. All this and you are way out in the bush!
The tents are on elevated platforms separated from each other by maybe roughly 25 feet for complete privacy. They are kept very clean and they have a small desk and chair as well as sitting area as well as a full bathroom. I have to admit I was not expecting an actual toilet and shower in my tent but you have both as well as a double vanity sink and hot water for your shower! The tents also have a very nice large porch with two large chairs for you to sit back on and look out over the African landscape.
I loved hearing the wildlife at night and the birds in the morning!
This was my first time at Kikoti camp as well as my first time in Africa and I will definitely be going back to Kikoti not only because it was a great place to stay but to visit again with the wonderful staff!
