Kipling camp really has to be seen to be believed. The staff have generally long tenure, and are extremely devoted to the needs of guests. The manager is very hands on, and nothing is too much trouble.
The safari setup is good, and by the time we arrived at Kipling we had been to a few other setups which are all very similar. We did not see a tiger on our Safari from Kipling, but did see many other interesting things. The drivers are friendly.
The most memorable feature, by far, was the presence of the Elephant that lives the most luxurious life of any elephant in India which you can feed, walk along with and even have a swim with in the local river on its daily swim. This was a truly amazing experience, and highly recommended.
