Where to begin! An experience at Kings Camp that exceeded every possible expectation - our first safari and our first time on the African Continent - and wow, did Kings Camp exceed in every way!
First and foremost for us - the animals! And we feel so fortunate and blessed that Cynet, our guide, and Sonny Boy, our tracker, were able to show us, at the closest of distances possible, the Magnificent Seven - the two lionesses on our final of six sunrise and sunset drives in the open Land Rovers (with blankets and "morning coffees" and "evening sundowners") on the wooded savannah, the graceful leopard, the threatening elephants, the mom and dad and baby rhinoceros grazing, two charging buffalo, and the rarely seen and endangered cheetah and African Wild Dog packs - on two occasions! For us, the highlight of our visit to South Africa!
Now let me tell you about the "truly six star" guest experience at "The Camp"! Our 1,000 sq. ft. + safari suite with patio and pool - where they served a surprise dinner for my birthday guy, and our favourite group of monkeys came early each morning to visit and play, the delicious breakfasts and lunches served on the dining room patio overlooking a watering hole that the elephants often frequented during meal time, the management and staff - so warm and engaging!
We made our decision to come to Kings Camp, amongst so many choices, solely on the basis of the TripAdvisor reviews and never have we been so pleased!
We will undertake the 25 hours of flying time to revisit Kings Camp - it is a truly joyful experience that replenishes the soul.
