Kings Camp was a highlight of our African Safari! Our room was absolutely beautiful and the whole facility was top-notch. The staff were helpful and friendly. The meals were great! Our guide was fun and enthusiastic and our tracker very good. We were so lucky to find all of the 'Big Five' and to get so close to these animals....

Some concern ahead of our arrival was a recent one star negative review. Anything but that. From our arrival to departure we were treated royally. Food,staff and especially our ranger Cygna were outstanding. We saw all of...

This was my second perfect stay at Kings Camp. Loved every moment. This camp has "hands on" management and that sets it apart from many others. Warren and Lischa are visible from the first game drive in the morning until dinner in the evening. The staff is very well trained and the food by far the best of the three...
