“The perfect Mara location”
Reviewed 19 February 2010

We arrived at the Kichwa Tembo airstip amidst Giraffe, Gazelle and Zebra with endless rolling savannah, the Mara was everything we had imagined. We were staying at the eco- friendly Kilima Camp, which was perfectly situated on the edge of the escarpment overlooking the park, a 15 minute drive (on a very bumpy track) outside the park. However the view from the camp was unbelievable, with a perfect view of the Mara River. All the tents overlooked the Mara below and were very practical and comfortable, we were even impressed with the bush shower!!

The food at this camp was perfect, with tasty soups and tender steaks, there was a varied menu and in our opinion too much food!

Our guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic as were the Masai warriors who hosted bush walks around the camp. We saw the Big 5 on the first day and had an encounter with a leopard and were fortunate enough to see a cheetah hunting.

We were very impressed by Kilima, it was the perfect escape with magnificent views and would consider a future visit during the migration.

Reviewed 8 December 2009

I will say a word or two on Kilima. Stayed there for just 1 night in early October (didnt get a booking so spent rest 2 at KT). One of the most memorable stay in life. best possible location at 1800 metres on top of Siria Escrapment (had entire Mara traingle bare open in front of us ); Extremely spacious tents; Very friendly staff; Awesome food and an endless canopy of stars - that's how I will summarise our one night there.

Everything was picture perfect to give us a true Bush Camp experience - 12 tents; no Fence, Laugh of the Hyenas, Resident Giraffes, Safari Shower, Pale blue lights matching perfectly with the ambience and always smiling staffs.

We will surely go back soon!
