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!

The best you will find there is the staff, very kind and helpful. Location is not bad, top of the hill with great views, but tents are arranged in a "military way".
The main problem was with the groups of truck passengers that -as mentioned in other reivews- shared some of the camp facilities. Very noisy people, they didn't care how late in the night it was when the truck arrived: walking among the tents while looking for the showers, shouting ... Not what you expect if you are going to wake up very early for a morning game drive...
