I recently spent time in several of the Atua Enkop camp and cannot recommend any of them enough! The Masai Mara itself is beautiful and the camps are situated in the best places! Tipilikwani makes a great first stop for those travelling in as I did from Nairobi as it is connectected by a resonably direct route taking about 6... More

We spent a total of three nights in the Atua Enkop camps. Two nights at Tipilikwani and one night at Camp Ngenche. These camps are absolutely stunning! At Tiplikwani, you will be warmly greeted by the camp staff and the hotel manager Theo who was available throughout our visit and helped us with anything we asked for and needed. Food... More

Three course lunches and dinners with plenty of choice. Friendly and helpful staff. Always had hot drinks waiting for us before our early morning game drives then hot... More

Spent 2 nights with friends and was absolutely blown away by the service and experience. Gorgeous tents with hot showers, and good food. Our guide was incredible, seeing and finding things that no one else could spot until they were right in front of us. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating, we felt totally at ease and really... More

I stayed at this camp during Christmas in 2014 for 4 days with my wife. The location is great albeit on the border of the park. The staff are all very friendly and the meal qualities are quite good. The tents are enormous and very comfortable. The highlight of the trip was the game drives. The two driver/guides, Dee and... More

Tipilikwani offers an amazing experience - the tents, the food, the staff are all exceptional! I came back a few hours ago and am already missing this place. My husband and I are staying in Nairobi for 3 months and booked a trip to the Mara with FCM travels and chose to stay at Tipi. The lodge is beautiful, the... More

We spent the last two nights of our safari at the Tipilkwani Camp, a series of large tents on the outskirts of the Maasai Mara game reserve on the banks of the Talek river, a tributary of the Mara. It is a one hour drive over some very rough terrain when you leave the comfort of the main roads. Fortunately,... More

We spent 5 nights in November 2015 at Tipilikwani and it was the perfect Mara experience. I've done safaris all over southern Africa, but this was my first time in East Africa. Our primary concern was game viewing, but Tipilikwani went above and beyond that. The best part of the place was the guide we had. Every day was a... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in September 2015. My tent was large to say the least – 2 double beds, a writing desk, a huge en-suite bathroom with 2 basins, a flushing toilet and a walk-in shower – none of this bucket shower melarkey either, it was hot running water at the turn of a tap! Outside I had... More
