It is hard to find enough superlatives for Kilima Camp. Glamping in huge luxury tents with loos and showers overlooking the Maasai Mara. Sit on your porch and watch elephants (through binoculars you will be relieved to hear) while the birds are all around you. Food is good but what made our stay even more special was the fantastic team... More

The staff are the most friendly people you could meet. They always smile and greet you joyfully. The room is extremely comfortable and unique. It is decorated in a typical African style. I felt like I was in a luxurious hotel yet I felt like I was In the middle of the wilderness, which was exactly the real experience. The... More

Beautiful tents, views, game drives and food . . . and staff could not have been friendlier. I was also really impressed with the level of communication offered pre-departure. This was our first trip to the Mara and it was a really special experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Kilima.

We will be back, and so many thanks to all... More

We spent two nights in Kilima Camp during our safari trip in August. This boutique camp is the best place we stayed throughout the trip. Everything is perfect. We were greeted by staff at the lobby tent with gorgeous view of Mara. Our tent was lovely, very clean and comfortable. Food was excellent. They prepared flowers, cake and threw in... More

We took 22 friends to Kilima Camp a couple of days after our wedding in Nairobi. The camp and staff couldn't have been more hospitable, from the airstrip pick up to the Maasai welcoming, the brilliant guides and delicious food and drink. We couldnt have asked for more from Veronique, Axel, Louisa, Tom, Simon, James, Martin, Bernard and all of... More

When you travel somewhere, for sure the place, foods, its environment are very important for your trip to make it unforgettable, but also, more importantly, people there are really one of the most...

"What a view" is the first thing that pops to mind when you arrive at Kilima Camp, from the camp you see the complete Mara Triangle, with the Mara river right in front of you. As the sun sets you see the colours change and hear the savannah come to life... The guides at Kilima Camp are great, smart will... More
