This place is just perfect and there is nothing even a critic to say about it. All pf it is perfect, the service, the food, the environment, the rides in the wildlife with Vicky and Albert our team in the jeep, with small stops at sunset for a cold drink. All the small attentions are well thought and so kind....

My husband and two teenagers just wrapped up 4 days at Kings Camp. We had an exceptional stay. The staff - regardless of job - was second to none. The rooms were gorgeous. We had the trip of a lifetime. In particular, I'd love to single out our guide Vicky and our tracker Albert. They were phenomenal, helping us identify...

We spent 3 nights at Kings Camp. It was truly wonderful in every way. The room was spectacular, the food was the best we had on our whole trip and the service with Warren and his wife leading the way was outstanding. The game drives with Vicky and Albert were a thing of wonder. To watch them tracking, explaining, showing...

We had 3 nights in this amazing camp. We had a huge room and fantastic large bed. The meals were very good and plentiful. Wine choices were good also. They surprised us with a romantic dinner on balcony for our anniversary. Very thoughtful. Ranger Vicki & tracker Albert were the best. Nothing was a problem if we had requests. We...

We booked two different camps, this one and another one, when looking at what we wanted to do this was a bit expensive so we choose to stay more nights in the cheaper one, definitely a big mistake, this is totally worth it, great camp, lovely staff, really great guide and tracker, Vicky and Albert you are the best !...

I spent 6 days and 5 nights at Kings Camp. Was pampered, wined and dined with outrageous Kosher food. Game drives and sightings to die for. I highly recommend the polite and friendly management and staff overall for efficiency and knowledge. The rooms all come with both bath and shower, fridge, coffee maker and air conditioner. 5 start dining and...

We booked late and chose Kings Camp simply because it was available and near to Hoedspruit. Having never been on Safari before, we had no idea what to expect for ~US$1,000 per night, which at face value seemed expensive. The experience was wonderful and we certainly felt that we got value for money. There are two 3-hour game drives per...

Excellent for animal viewing, saw the big five in the first day! Also really good animal interaction, feeding, hunting, resting etc. And the safari jeeps are 6 seaters not the nine of some other camps. The rooms are big and very good and the service really good. Breakfast and lunch are really good, but for some reason our dinners weren't...

From the moment we arrived it felt as if we had come home. The accommodation was superb, the food absolutely amazing and our guide, Victoria,with her tracker, Albert, went out of their way to find us our wish list, but never giving us the feeling that we could not stop for bird photography, a tortoise or flowers.

Dark tones of wood and thatch offset the natural colours of the bushveld. ... more   less
