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

All the people at Kilima doing their best to give the best service and always with a smill on their face. A... More

I recently stayed at Kilima with my 2 year old, husband and my parents visiting from the US. The lodge and tents have great views and are very nicely appointed (we stayed in the deluxe tents). The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful with my very active 2 year old. As it was the low season we had... More

Kilima is a gorgeous camp with cozy and beautiful tents. Each tent has its own deck with a stunning view to the Mara, perfect for sundowners! Don’t stay in huge hotels, behind concrete walls were you can experience a camping trip in the middle of the Mara with all the comfort Kilima offers. It has great food, relaxing spa, and... More

My friend and i recently stayed at kilima and it was fantastic. Our guide (Martin) was definitely one of the highlights. His eye for spotting animas was incredible. We saw packs of lions being chased by buffalo, a leopard in a tree, the rare black rhinos, a cheetah and much more. He was great fun to spend time with and... More

We started off our honeymoon at Kilima Camp in September 2013. Everything was perfect! Our room/tent was very big, with a flushing toilet and hot shower. We woke up the first morning to be told that we had a leopard outside our room and the next day there were Zebras outside our tent, cant get much better. Our guide, Martin,... More

We stayed at KIlima Safari Camp in Amboseli because we wanted a Camp with a good view of Kilimanjaro. We had stayed at its sister camp Fig Tree Camp in 2009. Our Tent was in a good spot so once the clouds had cleared the view was amazing. We stayed here before flying on to Royal Mara. Our Tent was... More

We stayed at Kilima in mid December and experienced some rather wild windy, rainy weather so not quite what we expected! However, the team went out of their way to make our stay very special and Martin, our safari guide was so talented at getting us to the best viewing spots ahead of the crowds (but maintaining respect for the...

Stayed here for 3 nights with the family. We stayed in a family deluxe tent. The tents are VERY spacious and tastefully decorated. The veranda was also beautiful and perfect for relaxing in the morning and in between game drives. You have a beautiful view of the Mara. The staff at the lodge is amazing. Very accommodating and very friendly,... More
