The view is amazing and you can't just stop watching the 5895 m volcano which is the highest summit in Africa . Having said that the food was just very average not to say poor , the amenities in the room almost ridiculous .and the fact that keep cutting electricity 3 times a day as they operate with generator will...

Beautiful tented camp, with our tent overlooking the waterhole with ostriches, impalas, gazelle and waterbucks. Large, clean bathroom and pool - lots of water for hot showers. Buffets were good, in a spectacular setting. You can climb up the tower in the restaurant for breathtaking views of the camp, right into Amboselli National Park. Mt. Kilimanjaro is visible when it's...

We came to Kilima after a very long drive - 8 hrs in fact. On arrival no hot water even though the wood boilers had been fired up(yes in many camps that is how hot water is provided efficiently) . Is it rude to let the management know that we were not happy campers. The staff were marvellous, and upgraded...

Dear Helen. Thank you for your review and the management has dealt with the Hot water problem, during your stay at the Kilima Safari Camp, the was a big cloud cover that hindered the hot water solar system, that's why we experienced that problem. The Hot water system has been repaired, and installed an alternative electricity backup that will ensure...

We stayed here only for one night, very near to the Amboseli National Park's gate. This place is the best, absolute silence and with clear view of Mount Kilimanjaro (on a clear day), a drinking pound where Gazelle, Elephants often come to drink water and you can watch them very closely. Camp's are very relaxing, with good service, gentle and...

My family and I just return from a 12 day safari in Kenya. One of the tented lodges we stayed at was Kilima Safari Camp. The place is gorgeous and the staff very friendly. Our tents were a combination of tent and hotel room. There was a sliding door which locked! (We had keys!) Inside was a real floor, real...

Stayed here 2 nights as part of a safari tour with Collette. Of the 3 camps we stayed in this is my favorite as far as the room goes. It is not really a tent - it has sliding doors that are locked with a skeleton key. The room is large and very comfortable. The only drawback was I was...

Though I have not tried all of the accomodations at or near the Amboselli game park, from what I have observed the Kilima Safari Camp is one of the best. The so-called tents exceeded most luxury hotel rooms and the location is right at the front gate of the park. The large outdoor dining area is very nice and on...

This is a comfortable place, located very close to the entrance of the beautiful Amboseli Park, but beware it is big and operating more like a large hotel than a small camp. The main reservation we had related to the food, which really left much to be desired. On the other hand, the pool was great.
