Fodor's Review

The cry of the fish eagle permeates this exceptionally lovely, solar-powered camp (pronounced kee-jer-ah), which is set on the aptly named Paradise Island amid thickets of old trees in one of the most beautiful parts of the reserve. Spacious rooms of timber and canvas are built on a high wooden platform overlooking a floodplain. Reed blinds separate the sleeping area from the bathroom with a reed-walled shower and separate toilet; you can also shower under the stars. Raised wooden walkways connect rooms to the main lodge, which sprawls beside a lagoon where a small wooden draw-bridge joins the island to the mainland. At night this bridge becomes a thoroughfare for lions and hyenas, and it's not uncommon to see one of these nocturnal visitors walk by as you sip your postprandial drink by the blazing fire. The food is varied and excellent, and the staff is ultrafriendly and attentive.
