Kitandara Hippo Hill Camp
Reviewed 18 September 2016

Our group stayed here for two nights. We ended up camping b/c the rooms were way overpriced. There weren't any other guests there and we negotiated a price that we were ok with and then the guy never came back to give us the key. We gave up and just went with the camping. The beer was inexpensive, so there's that.

Camped here during a tour in the area, They provide a sheltered area for cooking and an area suited for camping, it was comfortable and safe. Basic facility, no hot water and ideal for a short / stop over.

Room Tip: come packed for camping

Way overpriced for what you get. You will also pay for your drinking water here, as most places at least give you a bottle to bruch your teeth. Location, great. Really nice authentic rooms, staff friendly, was great to have a hot shower. Smell of sewage from under the floor. The food was bad, as I was sick the whole night from it.

Room Tip: you don't have a choice

This lodge is very well located for Queen Elizabeth Park.

The rooms have excellent decor and are very spacious with full baths and overhead showers. Our experience was that the water was hot regularly and the pressure was good. However we stayed with friends and they had very little hot water.

The bar is big but has no wifi or atmosphere, we were not aware of a restaurant.

Good for an overnight stay but I probably wouldn't stay for longer.

Stayed: December 2014
