What a surprise to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary with hubby, 3 year toddler son and my mum and dad. Its a boutique lodge. Tented camp. The service, quality of the room, beds was very good. No complains there. The views from the tent, lounge, restaurant area are amazing. They do not have a high chair for toddlers at the... More

This place is spectacular! My tent was comfortable with a view of the Masai Mara right across the river. The staff is wonderful. Very attentive to every possible need. The food might have been my favorite part! Delicious! I struggle to find anything negative to say. I can't wait to come back and stay longer!!!

This one of the places my travel agent recommended. Budget was one of the criteria. It was one of the best holidays/breaks I have had in the Mara. The service was excellent, the food delicious (my mum being a vegetarian was concerned, but she was very impressed) and the staff were very helpful. The camp is rustic and not too... More

Good food, clean tent, could see some wildlife from the camp and all in the heart of the Mara. We spent 3 nights and it was wonderful. Look for the monkeys who like to watch themselves in the wash stand mirrors. Make sure your guide is a Masai.

We didn't know what to expect as it was organised by our travel agent as part of a longer holiday. It far exceeded our expectations from the moment we were met at the air strip by our guide. Vincent and all of the staff were so welcoming throughout our stay and couldn't do enough for us. The food was excellent... More

We've booked our first safari over a long weekend at Ilkeliani camp, so we have little experience to compare among the many existing options. We took a flight from Nairobi to Ol Kiombo airstrip and the driver from Ilkeliani promptly identified himself when we got there. The camp was very comfortable and the location was splendid, on the Talek River.... More

Stayed here with a friend for two nights and had absolutely great time. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, the food was delicious and the premises of the camp by the river beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay!

Stayed here for 3 nights on safari. A really incredible and beautiful place to stay. The tents are comfortable and roomy with hot showers, electricity and hot water bottles put in your bed every night. Each tent is secluded and spaced away from others and they look out over the river. The dining and lounge tents are great and there... More
