An amazing experience. Wonderful location & spectacular setting. Management & all staff were brilliant, very friendly & a good laugh. Fantastic chef who prepared stunning meals (whom I did try & talk into coming home with us) lol... Our driver Justus 'He's the man!' Brilliant! Went out of he's way to give us such an amazing experience & saw everything... More

The location, the service, everything. A wonderful place. So intimate and comfortable. The view is a privilege not many other caps or lodges have. At night one can hear and see the wild animals around, the night starts above us is a show we will never forget and the same for the sunrise view from our tent of the endless... More

We stayed at Kilima camp for 3 nights and had an amazing time. Service was second to none, with delicious food, and friendly, excellent service from all staff. Whilst just outside the Mara itself, Kilima has the advantage of being positioned on a promontary overlooking the Mara and the views are just stunning. Our game driver was excellent and made...

The group we travelled with couldn't have been more happier with Kilima. It has a family like environment, while maintaining a rustic feel, on top of the mountain looking over the escarpment. Axel the owner was a wonderful host and the cooks were more than accommodating to our needs. The Maasai's who guarded the the place during the night times... More

I wish I could write two separate reviews, because the place was quite different when the owners were there and when they were not. Our first two nights were disapointing. The on-site manager was quite a character, great at telling lion-taming stories, but not one for attention to detail. Unlike at the other lodges we visited on our trip, he... More

This place is really magical! the view, the tent and huuudge bed. Staff so friendly. These little touches you do not expect. The most incredible thing is SPA. When you get there ask them to show it. You will not understand what you miss if you don't see it yourself. Just as I saw it only last day. I will... More

arrived here after a disappointing stay at Flamingo Beach Hotel with African Safari Club to be greeted with a location to die for, combined with the highest standards of service and accommodation. The food was amazing, the staff took so much trouble to make sure we had everything we could need or want. they were especially great with our 7... More

Great camp on an escarpment above the mara. Tents are lovely and the food is fantastic. The game drive guides were equally good, knowledgeable and patient. David the camp manager was great. Bear in mind this is a tented camp and not a "resort" so if you want a power shower and bath look elsewhere. We felt the tents added... More

From the moment we stepped off the light aircraft, we were met by Justice (who was also collecting David, camp manager) and felt totally at ease and made very welcome. On entering the camp it was just "out of this world" I had always wanted a tented safari and having been to Kenya a few times this was just a... More
