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

We went on honeymoon a few weeks ago with Kilima Camp being our first point of call. Having been to the Masai Mara before, I was worried the camp wouldnt stack up but had no reason to be concerned. The view from the camp is stunning and whilst the tents are basic, they are stylish, clean and have absolutely everything... More

Having grown up in South Africa, I have experienced many safaris but I can say without any doubt this was the best safari I have ever experienced. The stay at Kilima camp was a truly 'Out of Africa' experience. The accomodation was comfortable and clean with en-suite facilities. The dining was delicious and well presented, the bar area friendly and... More

My partner and I wanted to fulfill a lifelong dream of visiting the Masai Mara, observing the migration of the wilderbeest and hot air ballooning across it. Our choice of Kilima was made because of recommendation and the reviews we found here on Trip Advisor. Kilima is set on the most spectacular escarpment in the Mara. The views are wonderful.... More

We went to the Kilima Camp at the start of our homeymoon to Kenya and were not disappointed. We were collected from the airstrip and immediately taken on a game drive where we saw cheetah, crocodile, zebra, warthogs, giraffe, elephants, hippo's and other animals - all within the first couple of hours! The staff were always attentive and friendly and... More

I stayed here with my 17 year old son and we had a wonderful time. David the Manager was great fun and took us on a bush walk with one of the Masai and showed us how to survive in the bush. It was a fascinating experience and my son thoroughly enjoyed it. The atmosphere and ambience of the place... More

After reading all the reviews about this tented camp I had high hopes and expectations. The good things...the food was on the whole was very good. The view from the camp was stunning looking out over the Mara River. The staff kept the camp and tents very clean. Now the bad things... The reason to go on Safari is to... More

From the review it is obvious that the guests were unhappy regarding their stay at Kilima Camp. They also stayed during the same dates as the other “terrible review” we had from Rosie posted on the 19 July. Unlike Rosie, I am glad that the guests enjoy our fantastic view, like the food and find the tents clean and well... More
