There are several camps and lodges in masai mara. However kilima camp is a destination ideal for couples, especially honeymooners. It's a private camp that is set in a perfect dense area over looking the mara . The staff are just like family. I highly recommend the camp. Reuben

Returned on 06/09/14 from a two week holiday of a lifetime to wonderful Kenya. We spent 3 nights at Kilima 31/08/14-03/09/14. On arrival at the Kitchwa Tembo airstrip we were met by the best guide in Kenya, the wonderful Martin. He drove us a short way, stopped at the river Mara to show us a mighty croc & provided us...

Our experience at the Kilima camp was very good. We particularly appreciated that it had the service and comfort of a luxury camp, without the impersonal character of big hotels. With only 15 tents, the camp remains a good size for everyone to be treated as special guests. The staff is sincerely friendly and helpful. Already before our arrival one... More

We booked Kilima Camp as part of a 4 day Masai Mara safari booked through JT Safaris. We flew from Ukunda and arrived for a quick game drive before arriving at the camp. We were shown to our 'tent' Ndovu which as others have said has the most amazing views. The tents are great, lovely and clean and have wonderful... More

We stayed at Kilima camp for 5 days for our honeymoon. We had high expectations before arrival because we wanted everything to be perfect for our honeymoon. And Kilima camp surpassed our expectations. Everything was perfect: spacious comfortable tents (shower with hot water), delicious food, stunning view on the masaï mara plains and wonderful team. All people working at Kilima... More

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
