Just a few minutes before landing at the kichwa tembo airstrip I already had been treated to a array of wildlife grazing in the open fields below that's when my excitement commenced. . I'm on safari! When I stepped out I was greeted by name by the most warmest smile ever by the Head guide Martin! Karibu kilima...I was led... More

We stayed at the Kilima Camp when we went on safari in the Masai Mara. What a wonderful experience. Tent living with gorgeous vista views of the Mara along with amazing food each night. Our guides took us out and we were able to see the "Big Five" within two days-Rhino, Elephant, Water Buffalo, Lion and Leopard! The experience took... More

A camp that provides privacy with an exceptional stunning view to the Mara Triangle. Animals all around, giraffes visiting the camp at night times. The tents are located along the hill with enough distance between that one gets the impression being alone in the wild - just perfect. They are spacious and very lovely decorated. The "suite" tents are one... More

An amazing place to visit and unwind, away from the hustle and bustle of life, I highly recommend it. Just to be in the open vast country, and be with animals in the wild, is just so uplifting for anyone's soul.

We stayed in the Kilima Camp for two nights in Mid-May.The camp is located just outside of the Olololo Gate and a 15-minute uphill drive on a small mountain. Whilst the drive is not the most enjoyable part, you will be rewarded with a very warm welcome, a glass of excellent passion fruit juice and a refreshing towel. The check-in... More

I had such a wonderful time here at this camp. The staff was wonderful. Paul took great care of me while I was at the camp. My safari guide James got me close to the animals while we were on the game drives. They offer horseback riding and walking safaris which I did both. Got to go to a Masai... More

It's always people that make the difference and all of the guides really worked together to find the elusive leopard for us to see enabling our group to see the "big five": lions, leopards, rhinos, hippos and elephants. The vehicles held six or seven people and the roads are rough so the trip is bouncy. Food was outstanding given we... More
