To us this is the perfect place. We use our own cars for game drives in the Mara Triangle. The first night we camp near the Oloololo gate and the next we go to Kilima Camp, taks only 10-15 minutes from the gate. The Camp has very good tents with everything you need. The feeling of beening right out in... More

This is the finest tent accommodation you will find. Excellent food, lodging, set-up, view...it doesn't stop delivering. They had a Masai group come in to show us how to make a fire using sticks one night, a dance around the fire the next. They have a game warden on staff as well, which is perfect, because they have giraffes in... More

Let's start at the beginning. I spent more than a month checking reviews, writing mails to different kinds of luxury camp sites around the Mara, and I'm very grateful finding myself in Kilima. First of all, I got the most detailed information about my future stay of all as a reply for my booking request. The management has a quick... More

My wife and I stayed at Kilima Camp for several days in May and had the most amazing time!! The camp is located in a perfect place on a hill where you can see majestic views of the Mara and see a large number of animals. Kilima's guide was well informed, polite and skilled and we were able to see... More

As I live in Kenya myself, I went back several times to this lovely camp. Not only the staff are very nice, food excellent, ... it is especially the view that makes this camp very unique in the Mara. There are many camps in the Mara surrounded by the same wildlife, but I have not found the one yet that... More

Wonderful small camp up on the escarpment.....fantastic views worth the 20 minute drive into the park. Very friendly staff always willing to help, food very good standard and nice to have table service. Tents are well appointed although showers a little tight. Very good value for money. Guides very knowledgeable and nature walk was amazing

Kilima Camp was really fantastic. We had a great stay with my family of 5 with kids age 14, 12 10. The food was excellent. All 5 of us stayed in a deluxe tent and there was plenty of room. It was fun to wake up to zebras and gazelles right by our tent. The view of the reserve was... More

Our family went here in the winter of 2012. It was our first safari experience and we were blown away. There were lots of animals even tho we didn't get to see the big 5, we missed the leopard, but you have to save something for next time right? As for Kilima Camp, we had an amazing stay. The lodging,... More
