Located just outside the Amboseli National Park, the hotel has a fabulous view of the Kilimanjaro but nothing else. The tented room was nice and big, with large bathrooms. Nice wardrobe closet with a safety locker. The food lacked variety - though the restaurant was impressive in size. The service at the bar was half-hearted. The pool is the largest... More

Liked the fact that it's basic and at night no electricity at all...stars everywhere!! Tents are ok,although the attached bathroom is quite dirty and always full of insects and mosquitos. very basic bar,staff not really enthusiastic. Chargers available in the dining area. Swimming pool onsite but seriously dirty so i wouldn't use it.

We stayed here during the Easter holiday. The camp is located next to the entrance of Amboseli park. I must say everything here looks the same as the pictures on their website. Rooms are big with a view of Mount Kilimanjaro. The food was also good. Having said that, I was disappointed by the service we received upon arrival. They... More

This was definitely tenting at its finest! The tents were amazing! There were two beds, a desk, dressing table,wardrobe closet, double sinks in vanity, separate toilet and shower rooms. There was a nice patio with two chairs and small patio table. Mt. Kilimanjaro was visible from our tent. The pool was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The... More

I know that it seems strange at a tented camp just outside of the Amboseli Game Reserve in Kenya. However, this resort has the most beautiful outdoor pool that I've ever seen. The centre is deep, perfect for swimming. Around the outside is a shallow area with concrete lounge chairs, perfect for relaxing. Add nice bridges, beautiful landscaping, etc. Nice!... More

I visited this place as part of an Official meeting and found these guys to be spectacular. 1. All rooms face the Mt. Kilimanjaro and its exquisite. 2. In all my travels in Kenya I have not come across any hotel where food tastes as good as it tastes here. We all came back several pounds heavier. 3. The rooms... More

This is a hotel - not a camp so to speak - but it's smack in the bush, Mount Kilimanjaro is in full view and the rooms are half tents and half concrete so the camp feeling is certainly there. That said, It was a really large room so a walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night... More

The food was well presented and delicious. The staff were friendley and attended to all our needs. It was a little difficult... More

We have enjoyed staying at Kilima a couple of times. It is a true "safari" experience in the bush. The tents are fabulous. The view is amazing with Mt. Kilimanjaro in the near distance. The pool was very unique and large. Fun for the kids. And, as always, the food was wonderful! Just next to the Amboseli game park, home... More

If I die and go to heaven, I hope it will be like our tent (no. 16) at Kilima. I was already blown away when I saw photos online on the lodge's website, and I can only say that it was even better in real life. The furniture and decor were simply so stylish, amazing four-poster beds, beautiful bathroom... I'd... More
