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

We recently stayed 3 nights at the Ilkeliani. This camp was wonderful from the warm greeting on our arrival by the entertaining Pesi, to the excellent food and service in the dining room and the spacious well kept tents. A huge thank you to all the staff for making our stay so special and to the Maasai guardians who made... More

Great location, great staff, good food, top tents, perfect for visiting the Mara just across the footbridge. Spectacular balloon trip with Hot Air Safaris based out of there, culminating in a champagne breakfast. Saw all the animals several times, and often alone, under the expert guidance of our Masai guide/driver Daniel

Our stay at Ilkeliani was truly amazing and memorable. The service offered right from the start when we arrived at the camp was immaculate. The detail to attention to everything from meals, to accommodation, and general comfort of guests was really quite impressive. The hospitality of the staff was really very heart warming. The camp is situated close enough to... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during our Kenyan Safari and it was by far the best amongst the 3 different properties we stayed at. 1. Awesome Location - very close to the main gate and the rope suspension bridge entry is a real special one! We had lots of fun crossing it with our infant son! 2. Impeccable Service... More
