We loved this hotel from our arrival. The bar and restaurant area if a wide open space overlooking the river, where Giraffes, Baboons and Lions can be spotted. There is also a tree where Bush babies call their home. The tents were very luxurious and completely private with our our balcony to relax on and listen to the sweet song... More

Tipi is in such a beautiful spot we could hear the lions roaring in the evening and watched girraffes while we ate breakfast it was so surreal! Beautiful rooms and delicious food. We were lucky enough to have an evening with the Masai who sang and showed us their jumping skills! we all tried but I would say the Scots... More

Tipilikwani is a lovely chilled out resort if you are heading out to the Mara on safari. The restaurant, bar and lounge space is all open plan and looks over a beautiful view, a perfect place for sun downers by the fire and relaxing after a morning's drive. The resort also has a swimming pool great for a refreshing dip... More

This camp was the last one we visited on our week long safari. It was more permanent looking than the others, having the most incredible dining area. The exposed beams and open-ness of it all was just spectacular. On our last morning a tower of giraffes watched us have our breakfast. Now you dont get that just anywhere!!!! The rooms... More

Dee was great. We had many wonderful trips out in the park. Definitely a big fan of the open-style jeeps. This made a huge difference in terms of being able to see and being more comfortable. Rooms were amazing. Food was generally good with an occasional miss.

My favorite hotel in the Mara by far. The tents are huge and luxurious and some even have a deck outside. The family tents are amazing - two separate bedrooms with a living room in the middle. The service and the food cannot be faulted. Our guide Dee was absolutely amazing. Took us on some great game drives.

I had the privilege of visiting Tipilikwani Masai Mara Camp recently and would not hesitate recommending it. The tents are so spacious; I actually thought they had allocated me the next room category by mistake....only to be informed that it was the standard twin tent. Kudos!!! This was such a plus, especially having visited many other properties Mara which had... More

In February 2015, my niece and I visited the Masai Mara and stayed at Tipilikwani. The hardest part of the trip was pronouncing the name of the camp. We were greeted warmly by the staff with fresh juice, and the food throughout our three days was a highlight. Our guide, Dee, was exceptional. He knows the Mara and he found... More

We had a 3 night stay here in February, and absolutely loved it! Less than 15 minutes in from the airstrip, we came upon our first lion.......and that pretty much set the scene for the rest of our stay! Our guide, Francis, was simply wonderful.......intuitive, sensitive to the animals and their environment, I can't rate him highly enough! I am... More

Set just outside of the Mara this is an isolated and therefore somewhat uncomfortable camp to reach , that said nowhere on the Mara is easy to get to !! The Camp , at this time of year , is a wee bit "sad" , there is no staff around for most of the day and there is a distinct... More
