Kikoti Safari Camp was warm and welcoming! I loved the atmosphere, campfire, the food was excellent, and the chalet was awesome! I could hear the animals at night (zebra, hyena) and the air was perfect! The chalet had hot water, the bed was very comfortable, and the lounge area was beautifully decorated. The staff are so friendly and we enjoyed...

I loved this camp! The staff is very friendly. The environment is safe while enjoying the closeness of the animals.The accommodations were very comfortable and spacious. All the food was wonderful, especially the picnic on one of our game drives. I'm glad this camp was part of my experience!

These folks are wonderful. For part of our stay, it was only my wife, myself, and our guide, but they went out of their way to be sure everything was available for us. Huts on stilts so you can see everything from your porch. Big open air restaurant and bar. Modern generator system. During our first couple of hours there,...

Our two night stay at Kikoti Safari Camp was a highlight of our African safari experience. We enjoyed the primitive yet elegant feel of our room. The staff was attentive and friendly; the food was delicious; the ambience met all our expectations of a safari camp. We highly recommend the Kikoti Safari Camp.

We loved our brief stay at Kikoti, comfortable, but without insulating you from the wild surroundings. The bungalows are on stilts, and a staff member is always available to escort you to and from your room when it is dark ( a camp rule). Highly recommended.

Our cabin was very comfortable. The staff at the camp were very nice and attentive especially when 2 elephants decided to dine right outside our cabin. The food was good and the service superb. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Our group stayed here for the first two nights of our safari. The stay was perfect. The staff was attentive, informative, warm, and genuine. Our meals were excellent for all dietary needs (there were 16 in our group). I cannot recommend Kikoti Safari Camp more highly.

Thank you to all at Kikoti Safari Camp. What a lovely stay we had. Mary is just delightful as she served each meal. This is my type of camping in Africa! Since we were in the bush we could not go to or from the tents after dark without escort. The animals can roam in this area. Some of our...

Kikoti is situated right in the Tarangire National Park. There are no fences so animals roam about during the night. We heard lions on our first night! The staff is amazing and the food was wonderful. The rooms are very spacious, the bathrooms work, we had hot water when we needed it, and the power was (mostly) 24/7. No wifi...
