The staff members especially Vicky were so accommodating and honestly had the best service I have ever experienced. I simply love the Wototo bush camp, it is a tented camp, they have everything you need from your own private fire place to your own bar fridge, plates and cutlery.

I booked a weekend away and it was really great. I stayed at Watoto and i had one small problem. The last night there was no water and we had to ask the guide in the morning when we left what happened to the water. Otherwise we had a great stay.....quite and relaxed.

We spent 3 nights, and whilst the setting is absolutely beautiful, the following needs to be addressed: 1) We had no water for 90% of our stay, and while we filled up the bath tub for flushing the toilet, and the lodge management dropped off bottled drinking water, the cause of the problem was apparently a faulty electrical cable to...

Our accommodation was a permanent tent with a full bathroom that was more than comfortable. The lodge experienced a brief problem with water supply to the camp...

Relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff! Great safari tents to stay in with awesome views and fire place. We love going back every year. Game drive very nice although not much game but amazing to see the breading of the Sable and black Impala.
