We stayed for two nights at Tipilikwani and it was a wonderful well rounded experience. The tents were clean and well kept. Everyone of them has a balcony with a view over the small ravine surrounding the camp. Here we could catch glimpses of a handful of baboons, deers and other small animals. Even though the camp is not fenced...

I visited Masai Mara alone during end July 2014, after a business trip to Nairobi. A great camp, with comfortable and spacious tents. The staff was very courteous and rooms were provided with warm water bags, since it was chilly in the night. My safari guides ,Jonathan (driver) and Francis, were both local Masais but fluent in English. Since I...

The tents are luxurious, the food was very good (they have an actual trained chef which was unexpected and very nice) and we had a good time overall (especially since this was during the migration, a must see). However, for similar prices, we've had significantly better experiences in the Maasai Mara. For one, the location isn't great. They are situated...

We were pleasantly surprised by the camp. We traveled with our 2 boys and they too were impressed by the tents. Tiled bath floors, Roman bath tubs, rain showers and adjoining rooms were welcomed. The tents were adequately protected from bugs. The staff ensured our safety and were very accommodating. Service was exceptional. The location is perfect for Masai Mara...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This uniquely situated luxury camp on the banks of the Talek River overlooks the mottled plains of the Maasai Mara, where vast herds of wildlife co-exist with the colourful Maasai people. Between June and October the Maasai Mara plays host to one of the most spectacular wildlife shows on earth the great annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebra as they enter the Mara ecosystem from Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania. Tipilikwani's tents enjoy river frontage and are decorated with warm, rich Maasai colours. The family tents have a stand alone bath tub in addition to showers. Excellent food, personalised service and traditional Kenyan hospitality further compliment the prime location. Game drives offer the unforgettable opportunity to enjoy the diversity of animals and birds living permanently in the Masai Mara, as well as many migratory species. Guests can also learn more about the Masai people, proud pastoralists and warriors, many of whom still retain their traditional nomadic lifestyle. ... more   less
