We had a great few days here earlier this year. The views from camp were amazing. Accommodation and food all great. Most importantly our driver/guide was fantastic. The one piece of negative criticism is that the Barman encouraged us into drinking cocktails each night - on the premise that we were educating and helping him. We were of course willing...

I had a great stay at Kilima Camp! The staff was amazing, the spa-area mindblowing (wait until you see the view!), great food, tents etc. Great gamedrives, you can do safari from the horseback, balooning etc. I highly recommend Kilima Camp!

We stayed here 2 nights as part of a safari so can't comment on price/value. With great views of Kilimanjaro and the park from our tent and the rooftop of the dining area this location would be hard to beat. Our tent was large, clean, well decorated and had a huge luxurious tiled bathroom. The food was great and the...

wow what a location. We drove from Nairobi. Stayed for 2 nights. Super venue, super location & even better staff. The views are to die for. My only criticism is the road up to it, is poorly maintained, and the trip for the last mile or so was scarey to say the least. Hopefully it will be smoothed out before...

Dear Valued Guest, Thanks so much for your positive feedback, all of us at Kilima Camp greatly appreciate it. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.

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...

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...

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.
