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.

Second visit to magnificent Kings Camp and it did not disappoint. Just when you think game viewing can't get any better enthusiastic and professional game ranger Victoria Wallace and her knowledgeable tracker Albert go the distance to please every guest. Their stories of life in the bush are so informative. The delicious cuisine under the guidance of chef Michael Stephenson...

We had a great 2 night stay in Kings Camp. We were picked up from the airport and within 10 minutes there were Giraffes crossing the road in front of us. The rooms and the old style decor really get you in the zone for safari. Over the two days we went on 4 game drives and the team at...

I stayed two nights at Kings, and wished I could have had more! We had so many special experiences, and were part of the Kings family right from the time we arrived. We were late, and so nearly missed the afternoon game drive when we first arrived, but staff ensured we still got to have the sun downer experience with...
