We stayed as a group of 18 on a University field trip last week. Tents: These are no normal tents! Truly glamping! All equipped with electricity, hot water, comfy beds and still managing to be spacious. The mosquito nets really worked a treat too! Food: The food was excellent. Always plenty to eat, regardless of the time you arrived at...

The food is very fresh, there is no better place to have a best view of Mt.Kilimanjaro especially at the morning hours. Their staffs are welcoming and very friendly! I will come again.There is nothing exciting than starting a safari with a herd of elephants from a few kilometres from the camp.

Excellent pace with beautiful tents, friendly staff and very delicious food. The place is next to Amboseli National park , with a very clear view of Mt. Kilimanjaro early in the morning. Also animals grazing outside the Camp. I loved everything about the camp and will surely recommend all my clients to visit.

Kibo was breathtaking, peaceful, serene and great service. Thanking the staff for how they made us feel at home. Had a chance to meet new people and we had fun. The pool was just right for the scotching sun there. Ended up not reading the book I had carried, the new friends kept me well entertained.

I had a great time while at Kibo. I got what I wanted and that is a quiet time away from the busy town life with a few friends. The natural setting makes you want to stay many days. I also got to visit the national park in the evening and morning too. I look forward to visiting the place...
