Upon arrival with my girlfriend at the local private airstrip within the Mara, we were very warmly welcomed by Martin who turned out to be our gamedriver for the rest of our stay at Kilima Camp. The short drive up the hill, being welcomed by the elephants, giraffes and other animals on the way served as introduction for this Disney...

Landed on a airstrip made of red soil , late morning and had a range rover from Kilima waiting to receive us. The great thing about masai mara is that you get down from the aircraft and look around and you see exotic animals like the zebra, antelopes and the giraffe all around. Almost surreal!! Kilima camp is vey well...

We spent five days at the end of October 2013 as part of a family group of 9, ages ranging from 7 to 79 years and we all enjoyed an experience of a lifetime. No two days were the same and saw some amazing wildlife every day. Everything about Kilima camp is good with an incredible setting overlooking the Masai...

Everything about Kilima was outstanding. The staff were all very welcoming, the service they provided was probably the best we have ever experienced. The 'tent' was very comfortable with an amazing view over the Mara. We started off in a new classic to which had hot water and electrical points. Much to our surprise, we were asked if we would...

We visited Kilima Camp for 3 days in August 2013 - all I can say that it was amazing!

I must admit that the camp is beautifully located on the hills overlooking the famous Mara river, that's to start. It is very well kept, the new tents are elegant and comfortable, the service is mostly on its best (we were warmly welcomed by the camp manager, Monica, and at night we had a hot water bottle waiting for us...

We stayed at Kilima for three nights at the end of July. The camp enjoys a unique location, a few miles from the national park, on the top of an escarpment overlooking the Mara, with breathtaking views of the river and surrounding savannah. Dawn and sunset were particularly spectacular, though the views were attractive at all times. The camp is...
