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...

We started off our honeymoon at Kilima Camp in September 2013. Everything was perfect! Our room/tent was very big, with a flushing toilet and hot shower. We woke up the first morning to be told that we had a leopard outside our room and the next day there were Zebras outside our tent, cant get much better. Our guide, Martin,...

We stayed at Kilima in mid December and experienced some rather wild windy, rainy weather so not quite what we expected! However, the team went out of their way to make our stay very special and Martin, our safari guide was so talented at getting us to the best viewing spots ahead of the crowds (but maintaining respect for the...

Stayed here for 3 nights with the family. We stayed in a family deluxe tent. The tents are VERY spacious and tastefully decorated. The veranda was also beautiful and perfect for relaxing in the morning and in between game drives. You have a beautiful view of the Mara. The staff at the lodge is amazing. Very accommodating and very friendly,...

Amazing location, best staff I have ever stayed with. Paul made sure we were happy and James always found all of the greatest animal sites. All of the staff was always on hand for any needs. We were even escorted back to our tents every evening. The deluxe tent we stayed in rivaled any five star hotel. The chef prepared...

Kilima Camps seems a bit at odds with itself. when did you last stay in a canvas tent with a glass wall? This very smart camp offers a variety of tent lodgings and the ones we saw (a regular and a luxury) were both quite wonderful although they are so well equipped (many electrical outlets, bedside lamps, dual sink bathrooms)...

We were a group of seven ranging from my 6 year old daughter to my 76 year old mother. Non English speaking parents in law and the dreaded Kenya cowboy!!
