Kitandara Hippo Hill Camp
Reviewed 11 May 2013

We stayed for one night at Hippo hill. The place is under construction and everyone seemed surprised when we showed up. It took forever to serve dinner and everything was just mediocre. It is too bad that they are not rebuilding their cottages is a location with a view of the lake. The whole place just seems ill conceived. Outdoor furniture looked like they were falling apart.

Room Tip: Get one of the new cottages when completed.

A very special campsite indeed. We stayed here for two nights while on an Overlander from Uganda to South Africa. We pitched our own tents so did not experience their accommodation but the tents they offered looked very nice. The toilet and shower block on the campsie are ok but not more than that. The view from the site is great and so are the nightly visitors. At night expect hippo's to graze around, which made the stay quite special.

During a short safari in Queen Elizabeth we (3 solo travelling students) camped overnight at the Hippo Hill Camp. We didn't stay in the tents with the twatched roofs but they looked very nice. The view was nice from the campsite and during the night we had some interesting visitors like hippo's and warthogs! The bathrooms were okay and the staff at the restaurant was friendly (I could store my medication in the fridge without extra costs or questions). Though we were the only guests at that time they didn't close until we left.

This camp was ok, rooms were clean, but bit dark. Thee were many campers there, which turned out to be loud noise very late. The staff was really nice, but food wasn't so great. I would stay here again, as it was good enough.

Room Tip: Get one of the cabins versus one of the tents

This camp site is in a beautiful location overlooking the lake. Having only ever camped in a two man bell tent before, the permanent tented camps are great by comparison: spacious, clean and comfortable.

We were the only group staying there and so had no problems whatsoever with noise, it was really peaceful. The staff were very courteous and provided a good standard of food.

The water supply is a bit variable but then this is a very rural location so to be expected! Plugs are available in the bar so we could recharge cameras etc each evening.

I really enjoyed my stay here - and yes, there are hippos around the tents at night!
