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

It was our second trip to Mara, with friends from Germany, and it could not have been better. Stunning position of the camp on top of the hills, overlooking Mara river, top tents with all you could ask for (loved the hot water bottles at night!), great guides for the hikes and the safari drive, lots and lots of animals!...

What a great place. Stunning views over the Mara Triangle. Nice rooms each with a great view. Hot showers. Very friendly staff, particularly Paul our maître d. Food was very nice and plentiful. 20 minute drive down a rocky road to the park entrance but you see lots of wildlife on the way. Highlight had to be the game drives.... More

We had never before been to the Mara but was recommended Kilima from a friend of a friend and I can really recommend Kilima to anyone planning a safari in Kenya. My wife, 3 children and I stayed there 3 nights during April, 2014 (low season) and self-drove from Naivasha. The last 80km road was really bad (by european standards)... More

This was our first trip to the Mara and it couldn't have been better. From the time your're picked up at the airstrip the staff is friendly and attentive. The camp is the perfect location, only a 10 minute drive from the park entrance and on top of a hill over looking the valley. The food and accommodations were top... More
