It was our second trip to Mara, with friends from Germany, and it could not have been better. Stunning position of the camp on top of the hills, overlooking Mara river, top tents with all you could ask for (loved the hot water bottles at night!), great guides for the hikes and the safari drive, lots and lots of animals!...

What a great place. Stunning views over the Mara Triangle. Nice rooms each with a great view. Hot showers. Very friendly staff, particularly Paul our maître d. Food was very nice and plentiful. 20 minute drive down a rocky road to the park entrance but you see lots of wildlife on the way. Highlight had to be the game drives....

We had never before been to the Mara but was recommended Kilima from a friend of a friend and I can really recommend Kilima to anyone planning a safari in Kenya. My wife, 3 children and I stayed there 3 nights during April, 2014 (low season) and self-drove from Naivasha. The last 80km road was really bad (by european standards)...

This was our first trip to the Mara and it couldn't have been better. From the time your're picked up at the airstrip the staff is friendly and attentive. The camp is the perfect location, only a 10 minute drive from the park entrance and on top of a hill over looking the valley. The food and accommodations were top...

I recently stayed at Kilima with my 2 year old, husband and my parents visiting from the US. The lodge and tents have great views and are very nicely appointed (we stayed in the deluxe tents). The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful with my very active 2 year old. As it was the low season we had...

Kilima is a gorgeous camp with cozy and beautiful tents. Each tent has its own deck with a stunning view to the Mara, perfect for sundowners! Don’t stay in huge hotels, behind concrete walls were you can experience a camping trip in the middle of the Mara with all the comfort Kilima offers. It has great food, relaxing spa, and...

My friend and i recently stayed at kilima and it was fantastic. Our guide (Martin) was definitely one of the highlights. His eye for spotting animas was incredible. We saw packs of lions being chased by buffalo, a leopard in a tree, the rare black rhinos, a cheetah and much more. He was great fun to spend time with and...
