Lodge during Easter only half or less occupied. Positive reviews made me choose this one. Very disappointing. Located high in a bend of the river. Very good views! Friendly local staff. Small pool, nicely located, with daybeds in the shade. Approx 45 mins from Tsavo Sala gate. Real feel of being ‘out there’ (which you are: approx 8 hrs drive... More

Situated on the banks of river Galana,just 10 km before entering Tsavo East N/P threw Sala Gate. The food and the service is excellent,the tents are fair and you might as well spend two nights!! Katia and Momy are really doing their best in making your stay memorable so I recommend Kiboko Camp to the extream.

The new owner/manager is keen to upgrade her beautiful place to top standards, and we think she's up to it... She has some work to do with further improving the standards of the... More

in the heart of the savannah along the banks of the river galana, where the most great elephants of Tsavo go to water, there is a handsome and strong, Oscar. a pure Roman blood,that with his sympathy brings the culture of the savanna in people's hearts. the camp is excellent.

Excellent service, food and accomodation ; before going to bed make sure your mosquito net is big enough and the tent window flaps are down for ventilation. Awesome swimming pool. The setting is stunning.
