We stayed here in Kenya two nights of our 8 day Kenyan safari and we loved overlooking the river watching hippos and the great nature walk featuring many warthogs and even eland. We also enjoyed the night game drive spotting hyenas chasing impala.

My wife and I stayed two nights here in January of 2015. It was certainly interesting and by far the coolest part of this trip was the night game drive. Our room faced over the river and we could see animals grazing on the far side. I was a little apprehensive about the thatch roof but we didn't experience any...

I worked for 4 weeks in Kigio Wildlife Camp in 2015. For me, this was a life changing experience. Living in this conservancy makes you understand why God has chosen Africa to start creating all life forms on this planet. Astonishing views, nice climate, many wild life, which I encountered during my stay. I was living so close to nature,...

Perched above a waterhole, the viewing from the Arc Lodge is wonderful. The waterhole attracts elephants, cape buffalo, gazelle, water buck and wart hogs. The rooms are small but right outside my window were elephants! The food was good and the service was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful.

A friend and I booked a two night safari at Kigio Wildlife Camp. The prices were reasonable so we were very surprised to be the only two guests there. This meant that staff to guest ratios were very generous. The food was exceptional; three course meals every meal time, (we had to ask for tiny portions or miss out courses...

This tranquil location was a perfect place to spend two nights during a recent Kenyan Safari. The people were tremendous, the food was spectacular and the cabins/huts very comfortable. The opportunity to walk on the savannah with an experienced and interested guide topped off this all too brief stop along our route. It is a great place to visit and...

We stayed for one night at this camp and it truly was a wonderful experience. The camp is Eco-Friendly and the Conservancy was truly doing their best to be completely sustainable. The room was a complete "Hut" and was approximately four times larger then a typical hotel room. The room was definitely rustic but that added the correct flavor to...

Eco-friendly lodge with very friendly staff. Rooms are huge & clean. The dining area is very cozy. You get this feeling that you're camping but not in a tent. You can hear nature all around you. It's quite an experience!

The manager David was eeeeextremely helpful !! I love the view and huge rooms. You do have to walk to your room at night with a flashlight and a guide since it is very dark. We faced the lake which was very nice.Food was delicious. We had lambchops for dinner..Wonderful service and a great stay.
