"Luxurious Private Accommodation"
The range of activities at Kiba Point was a major factor in our decision to book. In addition to the typical driving safaris, we enjoyed an evening motor boat safari, a morning of fishing (and catching), an afternoon walking safari, and a dip in the natural hot springs. Our guide was excellent, not only in spotting game, but in educating us.
The accommodations at Kiba Point were stylish and comfortably luxurious. The thatched roof suites/cabanas are open to the Rufiji River, as is the reception and dining area, making for a spectacular setting. The sky view, cascading shower was particularly aesthetic and fun. We were entertained by the grunts and snorts of hippos as we relaxed by the dip pool in the afternoons, watching colorful little bee-eaters coming by to drink.
The open styling of the rooms contributed to an interesting night for our travelling companions. In the middle of the night their cabin became ground zero for a red safari ant invasion. Literally hundreds of thousands of ants, if not millions. Real life Indiana Jones stuff. To their credit, the camp staff managed the issue well, working through the night and the next day to rid the cabin of ants and to protect all the cabins against another invasion. And to think our travelling companions were worried about the lions that we would hear in the night!"
