The Kibo Camp is a nice camp. Great view of the Kilimanjaro is possible from the camp grounds. For budget acommodation it is good. Although there are better camps, in comparison I would prefer Sentrim Amboseli, which is in the same price range (as far as I know). The pictures on their website only show the luxury tent and not...

Very friendly staff, food is delicious. The Tents are nice and tidy. You can feel like part of the nature. This is exactly what we expected from Africa. Of course you can see mountain Kilimanjaro. So everything is perfect so just go there. Highly recommended... Asante

A warm welcome after a very long journey was received upon our arrival by Duncan and his team. The tent was unusual and comfortable, very spacious and a large bathroom and would have had a stunning view, had the weather not been so dire! Unfortunately there was a large school party also staying at the lodge at the same time...

The camp is very comfortable - a lovely greeting, nice bar, large and clean pool, spacious, well appointed tents. The only slight negative is that the buffet tended to be a little more like cafeteria food rather than restaurant quality. Staff were very accommodating and very pleasant.

Expected so much more for 'luxury tented camp' . The beddings have definetly seen better days, please change them especially the pillows and towels too. Grass too overgrown around the tents. Inadequate service at the pool, had to constantly arrange pool beds and carry pool mattresses. Food very disappointing. Not to mention the mosquitos and flies(probably nothing they can do...
