I would rate the Kibo Safari camp as the best from all the safari camps we stayed at for many reasons: the tents were real luxury, very comfortable and clean. The dining was exquisite with a rich variety to choose from. We were there on New Years Eve and there was a party we could join. The camp has wifi...

We stayed at Kibo for one night as part of a safari and we were impressed by the rooms/tents which seemed to be new, they were spacious and clean with en suite bathrooms, full beds and en suite bathrooms plus amazing views of killi. The dining room felt a little bit school like with a buffet and lines to wait...

This place is for real tents. Our tent was dirty, very dark (even with lights on), and there were bugs inside. Giant flying ants....big moth-type things....lots of critters. Bring LOTS of bug spray! I will say, they did have a mosquito net for each bed, and they did come while you were at dinner and properly tucked the nets around...

I would like to thank the entire staff of Kibo and miss Gadise for making my trip enjoyable. Right from the reception we were welcomed with smiles and ushered to our rooms by the friendly staff. The eco camp blends well with the environment giving it a wild feel. The meals were sumptuous and the experience was one I would...

Imagine the best food, elephants you cannot even count, service beyond anything you have experienced, and then you wake up and get the best coffee of your life and look up to a view of kili. Beauty beyond words.

The staff made our trip, they were very helpful and had a lovely sense of humour. The accommodation was clean and perfectly adequate - not luxurious but who needs to stay in the tent when you have such an amazing view of Kili! There was plenty of choice with the food and something to suit everyone. Definitely try sipping the...

This lodge is clean and comfortable. the rooms are simple but comfortable. The bathrooms are ok, they could use a bit of improvement. The restaurant was nice as it served a buffet style meal with quite a few choices but average food. We never got to see the pool at this lodge due to our late arrival and early departure....

Reviewed 23 February 2016

As with most, the idea of "camp" is a bit of a misnomer. The rooms are indeed large tents - the size of a reasonable hotel room - but they are pitched on a stone-flag floor and have a thatched roof over them. Electricity works (advertised that the generator is switched off at 23:00, but it ran all night when...
