A night at Itikoni Camp

What an amazing experience at Itikoni! A departure from the same-old formula of traditional big name safari camps.

At Itikoni the attentive camp staff struck the right balance of being on hand when needed but being scarce when you wanted to enjoy the verdant montane rainforest surroundings.

The fires warming each tent high in the mountain were a welcome surprise. And the food was delicious! A home cooked menu this was the best we have tasted anywhere on safari. The variety was outstanding and the aubergine bake and breakfast wraps were amazing. Tender steak, lamb bbq for dinner and always with so many options for vegetables. A real thought for vegetarians and those who want to try something different at every meal.

Whether you have been in East Africa for years or if you are a first time safari goer, you will find Itikoni a breath of fresh air, and not just the mountain variety!
