Fodor's Review

The cry of the fish eagle permeates this exceptionally lovely 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 walls separate the sleeping area from the spacious dressing room, which in turn leads into a reed-floored 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 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.
