As a group of 8 we needed somewhere that could fit us all. We were luckily enough to come across the WaterBuck lodge at kings camp.
First impressions of Kings camp were fantastic, the moment we stepped off our plane we were in good hands. Our guide Al was there to great us and take us to our lodge.
The lodge was stunning, everything you could possibly want! Most importantly a fridge that keeps refilling itself.
Cristina, Lodik and chef Mike did a great job of looking after us in the lodge. They were always on hand if we needed anything or had any questions.
Mike was a fantastic chef and his meals never disappointed and was definitely something to look forward too. He also catered very well for one member of our group, who was lactose intolerant and always had a good alternative to the meals that contained dairy.
Every evening meal was better than that last and meals around the fire were really special.
Everyday was a completely new experience and we were never bored of things to do.
Even if 2 games were not enough You get extra bush walks, spa treatments or go to the gym (I didn’t) .
The drives themselves far exceeded my expectations ! It was not an issue seeing the big 5, we saw them all within 24 hours of landing.
Al and Sunny boy where great guides and always got us to anything we wanted to see. Al was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his work.
It was such an amazing experience, we met some great people and have created some great memories. . We were treated like kings and it was difficult to adapt back to reality again. We miss everyone at Kings Camp very much and hope to return at some point in the future. Thank you to everyone who made it so memorable. Stephenson family
