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
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.
Simply the best!!!
