Special thanks to Gigi, Paco and their superb staff for these unforgettable three days! We enjoyed the game walk with William, the Sundowner and the day long visit to the game reserve. We saw all of the big 5 save a leopard. The attention to our care, the interest in our questions and the genuine graciousness we experienced contributed to... More

This place ils wonderful. Located in its own conservancy 15 minutes from Musiara gate, the camp is set in the middle of the bush with animals wandering around, from gazelles and warthogs to hyenas and lions. Everything from the accommodation to the services provided is excellent. The tents are very comfortable,with open views on nature. You can even watch the... More

We found Kandili Camp online and asked our tour operator to arrange for us stay on our recent safari in the Masai Mara [February 2015].It exceeded our expectations. Gigi and Paco, the new managers, have that rare gift of striking the right balance between being attentive to your needs and giving you space. When you arrive, whether for the first... More

Pre-Arrival I solicited a number of different camps before booking, and Kandili gave the best deal. Not only that, they were prompt in responding and thoroughly answered every question we asked. Lodging We landed at the Musiara airstrip and our camp was about a 15m drive north. The location was perfect. Beautiful view of the Oloololo (sp?) Escarpment (the western... More

It is very hard to get the balance between comfort and ecology, between service and sincere friendliness and Ana, Aldo and their team of Masai have managed and the result is a little miracle called Kandili Camp. I was staying with my wife and three children (9, 11 and 18) and we had 3 amazing days. My youngest son became... More

After 3 days in Kandili all we can say is extremely positive: we felt like at home, the service and food was excellent, the tents... More

I was here 4 fantastics days in June, and it was completely awesome. It was the best place I have ever been in Kenya. The installations, food, staff, are really good and a superb attention to the client... The sundowner, the safaris by foot , the sounds of the animals at night and a big etc, makes this place different... More

We started our Kenyan trip with the Kandili camp in late November and would advise anyone to stop by, it's luxurious but not over the top, witch still allows you to have a feeling of adventure, feeling accentuated by the amazing views and varieties and amount of animals around ( the most we've seen in Kenya). Personally my best experience... More

As a family, we decided to go a second time to Kandili camp in six months because it's our favourite place in the Mara, the best quality-price place. It's not the big hotel with lots of tourists and noise. It's a quite new camp, a calm place, not too big, run by a family, Aldo and Ana and their 5... More
