If you are looking for a lodge experience, rather than a tented safari experience, this is an excellent option and good value for money. The view is outstanding, over the Masai Mara. The design of the lodge and the tented bedrooms are very Africana and very nicely and professionally done... and extremely comfortable. NB. they have beautiful horses here do... More

This is the second time that I travel to Kilimacamp and it is such a nice feeling to see that the team is always doing everything to let you feel like at home. The room offering incredible view on the masai mara and the food (breakfast, lunch box and dinner) are just perfect. The chef loves his job and we... More

I don't know where to start, because it was just brilliant. End of August I went alone to the Kilima Camp. I booked the trip very last minute and everything was organised just perfectly. The flight itself was already fantastic and you see a lot from the plane. I was picked up at the airport and after 20 minutes we... More

Fantastic location on mountain (high enough, so NO mosquitos !) with unreal views from each tent. The staff is very nice, always ready to assist but never pushing. Small details made it one of the best hotel stays ever: hot water bottle for the bed delivered in the evening, small coal stove next to our table during dinner, ... Food... More

Kilima Camp has one of the best views in the Maasai Mara and is a great place to relax and do as much or as little as you want. It is very close to the entrance to the Mara Triangle also so good for game drive enthusiasts. The staff are great and really flexible - James is an excellent guide... More

Superb location, amazing views. Food was good though not much selection. Hot water bottles in the bed was a nice touch which summed up the level of service. Nice location, lovely people. We had a great guide - either very good or very lucky because we arrived just in time for lots of events.. We recommend the early morning balloon... More

Recently I spent two nights at Kilima Camp. It was one of the best experiences ever, and definitively the best Safari experience ever. The camp is beautifully situated and has an intimate, Out of Africa feel. You look down on the Mara, and animals are abound even close to the camp. The staff is friendly and always there to make...

I've been staying at Kilima on and off for close to 10 years, and regularly send friends there. But I'd not been since the tents were upgraded or the new main public areas were redone. It looks fantastic: classy and eco-chic without veering into bling, and keeping a good dose of the original basic camp feel, while making everywhere comfortable.... More

we did a three day safari a few weeks ago and it was truly the adventure of a lifetime - the staff at Kilima Camp were fantastic - the guides, drivers, cooks, everyone. The owner, Axel, is a great guy, treated us like friends, and the camp is gorgeous. It's on a hill top and overlooks the valley and all... More
