Kimondo Camp review

Kimondo's key competitive advantage is its location, right next to the Mara river... we witnessed multiple wildebeest crossings at a stone throw away from the camp...

This is a moveable camp, which typically comes with a little less luxury than the stationary camps, but they did an excellent job making it comfortable... the location makes for amazing wild drives... we very much liked the sunset drinks at the campfire, and the daily welcome ceremony after we returned from our drive!

finally, highest marks of our two week visit go to Elia, our guide... and what a guide he was! Not only did he drive a beautiful Landrover (rather than a new Toyota, like almost everyone else) but he knew were to find animals where no other would even think to look... We saw the big 5 with him in a matter of hours, plus on top of that a whole slew of other animals not easy to find, including an unforgettable encounter with Cheeta's...

Great story teller, great sense of humor...

Kimondo Camp review

As we drove to this camp we passed mile after mile of wildebeest moving down to the Mara to cross. This area was amazing for wildlife including hunting cheetah, feeding lions, rhino and young as well as the usual suspects. But come here at this time for river crossings which are both fascinating and awful at the same time.

The camp was of the usual high standard with great service. Particularly enjoyed the bucket showers

Kimondo Camp review

Our guide Kareem was the best guide we had in our three camps. Knew where to spot the animals and made the outings great.

The staff were all friendly and concerned we enjoy our stay.

more than 10 river crossings in 4 days

We stayed in Kimondo for 4 nights. It was fabulous - the staff is friendly, food very good and - most important - we saw a lot of river crossings !! The location of the camp is quite close to the Mara river, allthough You can't actually see the river from the tent. There were huge herds of wildebeest around the camp every day, so You sit right in the middle of them. During the night we heard them eating (they were 1 meter from our tent)!

As You usually share a safari vehicle with other guests it seems to be important to make clear what You would like to see. We had a group in our car that where on safari for the first time - so they expected to go for lions, cheetah, rhino etc. Of course You can see these animals here, but that is usually not what You came for. If You go for these animals, You will be driving away from the river. But there is only one place in the word where You can see the migration of wildebeest and the dramatic river crossings! As there was an other couple from US in our car sharing our point of view, it was easy to "persuade" the others (especially as they didn't really know what to expect because they booked last minute). So in the end in our car everybody was very happy.

Kimondo Camp review

I loved my stay at Kimondo. The game viewing was excellent.

Karim was a great guide. The warmth and hospitality of the staff is amazing and in particular the camp manager Richard. They went out of their way to look after me and I really appreciate this. The chef tried really hard to cook food to meet my requirements.

The tents are comfortable and have everything you need. The bucket showers are substantial. Staff have to work really hard to provide for and look after guests in mobile tented camps.

Kimondo Camp review

Kimondo is in a beautiful setting but at the time we were there Feb 5 and 6 there was hardly any wildlife in the area and we had to travel long distance to see same.

However the camp is well managed, staff kind and very helpful and standard of food good.

A great camp for the the migration

We really enjoyed out 5 night stay at Kimondo - it was a perfect camp in just the right place to monitor the progress of the migration crossings.

The camp was very well run by Tanzanian managers and the whole team were friendly and efficient.

Bush Camp with very comfortable facilities

The warmest of welcomes and the kindest of staff have made a great impressin on both of us. Absolutely the last word in hospitality and thoughtfulness.

As in all the Parks we had a fantastic chance to see the wildlife with superb guides and support. The trip delivered on all fronts. The one element that needs rethinking is the Bush Waklk around the Crater where we were given a five minute wlk ( we took much longer as we enjoyed being out of the Jeep. We were accompanied by a ranger with a gun who knew nothing of the environment (but looked after our safety. The walk needs to be managed more comprehensively and made more informative. Our guide Martin stayed with the Jeep when he would have been a much better guide. Both Martin and Elia, our guides filled their roles extremely well and were one of the key elements of our trip.
