What a fantastic experience Kings Camp was! The room was spectacular, the food was delicious, and the game drives were incredibly eye-opening. We saw the Big 5 several times over by our 3rd day, thanks to Don's (tracker) and Cynet's (guide) incredible skills and knowledge of the bush. The entire experience was quite surreal and made for the perfect honeymoon....

As a first time visitor to a game lodge, we were not sure what to expect. We were absolutely blown away by our game trips and by the friendly and efficient service. The knowledge and skill of our guide and tracker was excellent. Grant the guide provided insights into everything that we saw.

This place is just perfect and there is nothing even a critic to say about it. All pf it is perfect, the service, the food, the environment, the rides in the wildlife with Vicky and Albert our team in the jeep, with small stops at sunset for a cold drink.
