Ilkeliani Camp was great. I loved my tent overlooking the river. The staff were very friendly. I have a strange diet and they went out of their way to cater for me. I felt totally safe and lying in bed at night listening to hyenas in the distance was just surreal! The camp was in a fantastic location. I liked... More

Compared to other priced safaris, coming in this camp seemed to be a good value. After the 3 day/2 night safari, I rate this camp an excellent value. Last Saturday I arrived late morning via Safarilink to the airstrip in Masai Mara where I was greeted on the spot by Cool, my Masai guide for the duration. On the way... More

This was the 3rd stay on our itinerary and the camp was the biggest we went to, but it succeeded in feeling personal with very welcoming staff and tents placed secluded from each other. Our tent was on the bank of the River Talek where we spent any free time bird and animal watching, and even, on our last day,... More

The place is amazing, the surround, the authenticity. Tents are in the middle of the park. Food is great and the dimension, not to big, gives you the perception of being in an exclusive venue. Nothing really fancy, but everything was clean and the staff really helpful and gentle. A solute recommendation.

This was our first African safari. We stayed at Ilkeliani for 7 nights so I'm not able to compare to other camps, but, for us, it was spectacular! When we booked the trip, we didn't really know what to expect. Upon arrival, we knew that we made a great choice! This camp is literally across the Talek River. It's a... More

Few tents accessible with "Indiana Jones Bridge", lot of privacy... and lot of animals around, you can almost feel them in the night just behind your tent! Excellent staff, excellent service, comfortable tents with hot water and everything you need in wilderness, interesting Massai village nearby, just missing (if something!) pool to dive in in the midday break between morning...

Wonderful place near the masaimara game park.....we stayed for 6 nights and had wonderful experience of the place. Thia camp is located near the river talet.....which has very good birdlife ....the sitting room and the watch tower were the best places to see the banks of river. The staff is polite and friendly.... Nice place to stay....

This place is amazing for several reasons. 1st you will get an amazing service. Everybody is professional, polite and knowledgable. 2nd I believe this is a great way to bring employment and support education not only by employing local Masai people so they can learn/practice English but also learn to work in hospitality industry. The tents are clean, spacious and... More
