The best service, very good and fresh food, very clean and value of everything.
A very nice pool area with a spa, the bar attendant Morris, is extremely courteous and efficient.
The Camp has a vegetables garden...for any family or group safari this will be ideal place to stay.

Room Tip: the New tent rooms are classy

I visited Kibo Safari Camp together with our clients on the 28-29th.We had an awesome moment and a night like never before.To begin with the reception we got was very nice,they made feel at home.There hospitality was awesome,food finger licking all thru,Masai Dance at the bon fire was a thrill.Accommodation was fantastic,clean and quite.We really enjoyed there service and highly recommend it.Lastly but not least we highly appreciate one of there staff,a lady Gadise Negussie,she was so nice and took good care of us and ensured our stay was comfortable.I would rate Kibo Safari Camp as a 5 star Hotel.

Room Tip: If you visit Kibo Safari Camp,you can check in room 12 or 18 they are spacious,clean and quite

Our reception was remarkable: met with refreshing hot towels and ice cold lemonade! Extremely helpful staff. Tents are luxurious: two single beds each enclosed in its own mosquito net; shower and washroom in the tent separated into a room behind the sleeping area. Beautiful rough hewn solid wood furniture. This is what I call camping. My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Thorough explanations given about dining, lights out and other procedures. I noted a fire extinguisher attached in a tree (very safety conscious). I did not see any monkeys (we were warned about them and suggested to keep the tent zippered up) . Absolutely seamless process. All delicious meals included as well as a boxed lunch for the journey home.

Maasai dancers entertained. Mount Kilimanjaro was visible in the early morning.

Would we come again? IN A HEARTBEAT!! Thanks for the memorable stay.

Room Tip: This was early winter in Kenya: bring a sweater. Slept like logs!

Very friendly camp with splendid view towards Kilimanjaro and an elephant saying hello. Very friendly staff and good meals. The tent was splendid. The tent was nicely furniced and the bathroom was just behind. Slept like logs

Was looking for a holiday destination out of town when a friend mentioned Kibo, I went ahead and tried it and boy, wasn't that a paradise?
From the reception, the spacious rooms, the meals and then the biggest of all,,,,, its the only camp in Amboseli Ecosystem where one can see the magnificent Kilimanjaro.
I so look to going back there during my next holidays in August
Their prices are also out of this world, pocket friendly!!!

I had a wonderful experience at the camp. The new tents are amazing, spacious and beds are larger. Family room ideal for families. Service is above the rest and lastly but not least the food is great. Would return to Kibo anytime
