As a group of 8 we needed somewhere that could fit us all. We were luckily enough to come across the Waterbuck Private Camp Kings Camp. First impressions of Kings Camp were fantastic, the moment we stepped off our plane we were in good hands. Our guide Al was there to great us and take us to our lodge. The lodge was stunning, everything you could possibly want! […] It was such an amazing experience, we met some great people and have created some great memories. We were treated like kings and it was difficult to adapt back to reality again. We miss everyone at Kings Camp very much and hope to return at some point in the future. Thank you to everyone who made it so memorable…
