After hiking Kilimanjaro, we stayed at this lodge for 2 nights during our safari. Although we had also stayed at some high-end resorts, this was by far my favorite and most memorable place. The views were spectacular with giraffes meandering by as I enjoyed a glass of wine. The food was simply outstanding and the staff was warm, welcoming, and attentive. This is a very rustic tented lodge out in the bush, but I have never felt so close to nature and wildlife as I did here. I highly recommend Kilima Valley Tented Lodge to anyone looking to get off the beaten path, unplug, and get closer to nature.
My safari company, Climbkili, arranged three nights here for my private 3-day Serengeti Safari! At first I was disappointed because I had been staying in fancy lodges at the other parks, but the personal touch here by staff was wonderful! It’s rustic, not going to lie, but my tent overlooked the Serengeti and I got to see the sun come up every morning over the plains! It had electricity and water when I needed it. The food was wonderful even when I didn’t feel like eating because of a GI issue I arrived with. They were so accommodating and made bland food and drinks for me until I felt better. They even packed a bland lunch box the day I wasn’t feeling well. I had a short day that day and they let me rest and get better and made sure I stayed hydrated. The tent was on a platform, I never saw insects in my tent, nothing fancy, but I had a toilet and small RV style shower with hot water. A fan would’ve been great, especially when I wasn’t feeling well. It’s humid and there was no air flow through the tent. Like I said, rustic! It was neat to hear animals at night, but be safe in the tent! We were all provided a CB in case we need to contact the main lodge. WiFi was okay for the middle of nowhere, but only in the main tent area. I paid my tip and drinks together and that seemed to confuse them, but I tipped what my travel company suggested. The location is right in the middle of the central Serengeti action!…
We had 4 nights at Kilima valley camp in Serengeti, we have enjoyed full time of our stay, we saw several animals walking around the camp. The camp is full equipped with hot shower, very comfortable beds.. I can surely recommend this camp.
You are actually in the bush, can't get much better than that. Excellent Service by William and the staff. The tent was great, clean, hot water and beautiful sunrise from tent. The food was really good. Would recommend this to anyone not wanting the typical lodge. Absolutely Magical.
The view from the balcony of our tent was incredible. We really had a good time at the lodge. The sunrise in the morning was dope. Thanks for your hospitality and great service. Definitely a place I would love to do again when in Serengeti...!!
