GUIDE ON KIBO SAFARI CAMP IN KENYA
Set in the heart of Maasai life on the scenic African plains and in the shadow of the largest, free-standing mountain in the world, the legendary Mount Kilimanjaro, Kibo Safari Camp is a huge, non-frill abode to stay as part of your wildlife vacation in Africa. It can take in over 150 guests on a full-house so expect personalization of services to be at the bare minimum. Its proximity to the entrance to Amboseli National Park, just 3 miles (5 km) away (view park map), provides guests the opportunity to discover the rich variety of animal life for which the wilderness is renowned. The open savannah grassland is home to the world’s greatest diversity of hooved animals, and on your exploratory travels in Amboseli with AfricanMecca, it is possible to see an array of antelopes as well as buffalos, zebras, elephants, hippos, lions, cheetahs to baboons, vervet monkeys and many more. It truly is a photographer’s paradise and a birdwatcher’s dream location with over 425 birds currently listed. On arrival at the camp, your budget holiday in Africa starts with a modest welcome cool towel and juice drink to refresh you following the warm, dusty journey to the site. The wilderness bush and environmentally conscious camp structure and furnishings blend with their surroundings to provide a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. Kibo Safari Camp has a total 73 canvas tents with a thatch roof to protect it from the heat of day, and options of double or twin, triple and family rooms are on offer. Each self-contained tent has an in-shower, sink and toilet, limited hot and cold running water and variable rationed electricity that operates only for few hours during the day and night. A jug of water is provided daily, but we recommend you drink bottled water. The friendly camp staff are always willing to assist.
Kibo Safari Camp offers varied activities including game drives, Maasai culture trips with the opportunity to watch the mesmerizing tribal dances around the campfire. An expert guided safari with AfricanMecca in Amboseli is a must. The game drives are taken in custom safari vehicles with the attendance of knowledgeable and experienced guides. With their impressive and extensive understanding of the area and local guide network, they will follow signs in trees, look for traversed grasses, track fresh spoor and listen to sounds to take you to the scenes of the fresh animal trails and offer you the chance to witness raw African wildlife behaviors in its natural surroundings. Amboseli is an eco-system where the natural laws of the wild are allowed to play out without interference. The world’s fastest land animal, the cheetah, lies in the shadows of an acacia tree, waiting for an opportunity to run down a gazelle or impala. Hyenas lie sleepily in the dust after scavenging a meal from a larger predator kill whilst nearby vultures call to each other in readiness for their turn to eat and Secretary birds feast on insects or search for small mammals or reptiles to satisfy their appetites. On return to camp after an extended game drive and picnic lunch, guests can later relax in the gourd-shaped swimming pool set against the backdrop of Kilimanjaro or journal about the African experiencing. Thereafter, take a late afternoon nap to recover from your early morning wake-up and later enjoy a massage, or perhaps enjoy the early evening sun in the gardens or from the tent patio area, where wildlife can pass outside the fence proximity. The bar and open, terraced restaurant, shaded by acacia trees, also look out onto the majestic mountain. Later on proceed for your early evening nature walk around the camp grounds and optional sundowner in the bush or at the accommodation around campfire. Freshen up and feast in hearty buffet dinner with sufficient food choice and a decent variety, including catering for vegetarians only if requested. When ready to retire for the night and reflect on the days incredible adventures, an escort is provided from the main areas back to the tent rooms, just in case there are animals around even though the camp is fenced to deter larger mammals. A visit to Kibo Safari Camp certainly makes a value tour in East Africa an expedition to remember.
