Cultural dance performance by Maasai warriors.

In the evenings from 9.00 to 9.30 Masaai morans entertain our guests at the bonfire with their traditional dances and will also explain to you the meanings of their dances and songs.

You are encouraged to join in and see if you could jump higher than a Masaai!

Cultural Tours

Visit at a Maasai manyatta (homestead)

You will be taken by van to a Maasai village where you will spend the day visiting the ‘manyattas’  and experience their way of life.

The Maasai people are an old nomadic tribe that lives in harmony with nature and is one of the few remaining tribes in Kenya that tries to hold on to their traditions.

This is at an extra fee payable direct to the Maasai moran (Maasai guide) before the tour begins.

Game Drives

On a game drive in Amboseli, you are likely to see large herd of elephant.

Amboseli’s fragile ecosystem displays an impressive wildlife variety, with more than 50 mammal species. The park is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants among other wildlife species. Another attraction at the park is the opportunity to meet the Masaai and of course the spectacular view of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

The elephants are the kings of the park, no doubt. They are fond of the swamp areas, where they share the cool waters with the hippos and hide beneath the papyrus. The park is also home to a large resident population of Burchell’s zebras. Other herbivores include Thomson’s and Grants gazelles, buffalo, warthog, Maasai giraffe, impala, water buck and dik-dik. Baboons and Vervet monkeys inhabit the scarce woodlands. Carnivores are represented by lions, spotted hyenas, wild cats, jackals, caracals and cheetahs. With regards to birds, more than 400 species of birds have been registered, among which outstand pelican, flamingo, kingfisher, African fish eagle, ibis, secretary bird, crowned crane, grey and Goliath herons, cattle egret, black-winged stilt, little grebe, Egyptian goose, martial eagle, pigmy falcon, masaai ostrich, white backed vulture, lappet faced vulture, yellow-necked spur fowl, kori bustard and hornbills. After the rains, the park gathers large flocks of water birds.

Game drives, if not already included in your package, can be booked at Kibo Safari Camp.

What our clients say…

“Great place to stay”

I’ve been here twice now and for good reason. The tents are roomy, well appointed, and clean. The grounds offer a few places to stretch the legs and a pool. The food is excellent and varied, and it tends to be a little busier than other camps, which I enjoy as it keeps the atmosphere lively while never feeling crowded. We happened to be there over Christmas and the festive dinners and vibe were great! Lots of fun.

We chose Kenya as our honeymoon destination in Dec,2015. We stayed 2 nights in Kibo and it was a delightful experience from start till the end. The swiss tented camps are perfect nests in the wilderness with all facilities therein. The staff was extraordinary warm and helpful. View of Mt.Kilimanjaro from camp is breathtaking and magical. We would indefinitely plan our stay at Kibo whenever we visit Amboseli again. Thanks for making our trip comfortable and memorable!!

Great Safari Camp

We stayed for only one night at the Kibo Safari Camp and really liked the camp. The tents are very specious with a nice terrace. The camp has a beautiful swimming pool and a nice open air bar. It is awesome to sit next to the bone fire at the camp and gaze in the stars. The service was good but the food was a bit cold and could have been better. However, overall we highly enjoyed our stay there and can only recommend this camp.

In sync with Nature

Kibo is special. This lovely gem nestled in the Amboseli National Park caters for the traveller who wants to enjoy nature in all its fullness. Their are tents as well as lodge rooms which give you a sense that you are in the wild-and still with all the proper necessities one needs e.g. hot water, mosquito nets and every tent has a veranda outside that faces Africa’s highest mountain. Was referred to the place by their Facebook page that has adequate information and I have to admit, my time there was nothing but lovely. I enjoyed the food too as well as their highly refreshing swimming pool.

“Excellent!”
The best service, very good and fresh food, very clean and value of everything. A very nice pool area with a spa, the bar attendant Morris, is extremely courteous and efficient. The Camp has a vegetables garden…for any family or group safari this will be ideal place to stay.
