Me and my husband stayed at Kibo safari camp only for one night during our safari trip. I very much regret not staying here longer. The tented camp was beyond perfect. The rooms had everything we needed and I felt like this was luxury camping. The location is also very ideal as it is right by Amboseli national park and... More

Great place to stay while visiting Amboseli. Quite a big camp but it does not feel like this. We briefly mentioned that it was our honeymoon and after one of the game drives we came back to a nicely decorated room and basket with fruit. We loved our stay in this camp!

Kibo camp is a beautiful, well designed tented camp. The tents themselves are well designed and spacious with a nice out door space. The communal areas are lovely, a great bar and outside seating area which is the perfect to enjoy a G&T and watch the sun set over Kili. The pool area is fab and needed after the early... More

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Kibo. Few things can match up to watching the sun set over Mount Kilimanjaro. Did you notice you can also see the mountain while at the pool area? Unfortunately the road to the park/camp is out of our hands. We will however continue to lobby for it's improvement. Overall, thank you... More

When we pulled up I couldn't believe we were staying somewhere so amazing. They gave us wet towels and juice and they took our bags to our amazing looking tent however this was where they started to suck. One of them waited for a tip to the point it was awkward.

My 2 friends and I stayed at Kibo for two nights. It is close to Amboseli, and has views of Kilimanjaro (when it's not cloudy!) The food was good, and we especially enjoyed Duncan's Swahili lessons! Tents were comfortable and hot showers were great!

We would like to be listed among the specialty lodges in Amboseli National Park to enable our clients to understand that we are right at the Park entrance and they can sometimes even see the animals from within the lodge as they occasionally come grazing near our boundary fence. ... more   less
