Very luxurious "tented" accommodations that we really enjoyed. The grounds are lush, the restaurant serves delicious meals, and the tents were absolutely amazing. "Roughing it" has never been so relaxing or fun. Comfy beds, great showers, nice lobby area, awesome lounge serving great drinks. Our only regret is that we had to leave after one night. Highly recommended.

The staff, especially Ben & Charles were a refreshing mixture of politeness and professionalism. We were on a 6-month honeymoon across Africa and had moved hotels because the previous was awful, and they took us in with open arms. They gave us a stunning room and a lovely fruit basket as celebration... and every interaction with the staff was friendly...

We stayed at Kibo for 2 nights in February this year. It was our second visit to Kibo. Kibo is a great camp with nice well maintained permanent tents. And it still has a very friendly and warm atmosphere, making us guest feel at home at once! Food, service, beds, showers, bar, cleaning, surroundings, it all gives you great satisfaction!...

Scenario is magic, with the Kilimanjaro standing just in front of you as you open the tent early in the morning. Very close to the Amboseli Reserva entrance, and has swimming pool where you can cool down between morning and afternoon games. Food was the best we had in Kenya. Personnel is simply lovely: caring, happy, attentive. This is the...

We had a lovely stay here. The pool, with views of Kilimanjaro, is great for cooling off after a game drive. The staff, especially in the restaurant, were great and the tents were excellently appointed.
