It is the farthest from the property but the walk is only 3 min. and well worth the privacy. The staff is very helpful and Warren and Lisha are always on hand to chat, help, make sure...

We spent our trip in king's camp right after our engagement. Staying in the honeymoon suite was a great choice especially when you enjoy having plunge pools in the room. Service are almost top tier. Game drives were not as efficient as compared to ones in the sabisand. We understand sometimes it take some luck to find animals, but it's...

This was my husbands bucket list trip and I went kicking and screaming. boy, was I wrong. First of all, the trip was SAFE.

We had great expectations based on reviews, but our stay surpassed the expectations. We were picked up at the airport by Lisa, and although the flight was late and we were going to miss the afternoon drive, she made the impossible and got us to the camp on time.
