From the friendly staff to the luxurious tents, the infinity pool overlooking the park and the hot water bottles warming the bed at night, snuck in while we were at dinner, our visit was a dream come true. And then there are the animals - our driver, Protus, did an incredible job of coordinating with other drivers from the camp and using his deep local knowledge to make sure we had a tremendous safari experience. This camp is very professionally run and has great facilities and an excellent staff. We also had the benefit of the experience of close friends who had lived at the camp for the year prior to our visit, and through them we learned that Kichwa and its staff are very committed to good, sustainable safari practices, an added bonus.
Only downside: don't expect to get on the internet much while at Kichwa. But you'll be having enough fun that you won't want to anyway.
