“the Gods’ window”

Kilima Camp has a perfect location in the Masai Mara for who wishes to enjoy unforgettable safari holidays in Africa.

Kilima Camp is located in Kenya on the western border of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Kilima Camp has been built on a private concession bordering the current boundary, the official perimeter of the Mara Triangle Wilderness Area (one of the tree contiguous administrative areas forming what is known as the Masai Mara National Reserve also called the Masai Mara).

Kilima means “mountain or little hill in Swahili”. Kilima Camp is situated on the edge of the Siria escarpment (also called Oloololo escarpment) at 1,800 metres above sea level, overlooking the Mara River The Mara River and the Masai Mara plains are at an altitude of 1,500 metres. Hence Kilima Camp has a fantastic and phenomenal view over the Masai Mara plains and the river Mara, truly “the Gods’ window”

Kilima-Camp Masai-Mara bush breakfast

Kilima Camp offers unrivaled aerial views across the Masai Mara and the river Mara, allowing guests to appreciate the enormity of their surroundings. Kilima Camp’s exclusive position provides a natural degree of privacy. Kilima Camp’s enviable location also offers guests the chance to discover local wildlife as well as learning about Masai customs and traditions on a variety of nature walks originating from the proximity of the camp.

With the entrance to the Masai Mara National Reserve and the Mara Triangle (Oloololo Gate) and local airstrip (Kichwa Tembo) just a fifteen minute drive away, Kilima Camp is not only easy to reach but also the perfect base from which to explore the Masai Mara plains and its wildlife.



Common Area

The spacious central main building is Kilima Camp’s meeting place where guests gather to eat, drink, talk, play games, read, or just enjoy the view before of after a safari in the Maasai Mara (game drive). Our two new restaurants are divided by a very nice new built bar lounge with fantastic views of the Mara River and Mara plain. One of the new restaurants has a new inbuilt fire place where one can relax with a drink after dinner. Both restaurants will cater for buffets.

Before and after dinner, relax by the camp fire, or at our very special bush bar, or around one of the sundowners and listen to the magical sounds of the African bush – all this under the spectacular African sky where the stars seem brighter than anywhere else!




Game watch: by car, on foot and horseback

Kilima Camp experienced and qualified guides will bring you to different places in the Mara Triangle during every safari game drive, as to give you a good idea of the different natural habitats of the African wildlife.

II want to go back!!

It is hard to find enough superlatives for Kilima Camp. Glamping in huge luxury tents with loos and showers overlooking the Maasai Mara. Sit on your porch and watch elephants (through binoculars you will be relieved to hear) while the birds are all around you. Food is good but what made our stay even more special was the fantastic team…


Kilima is the best travel destination in Africa

Having traveled over many years in Africa Kilima is the ultimate African holiday destination experience. Our 3 week Kenya family holiday visit from the UK finished in Kilima and the stunning combination of hospitality, kindness, food, view, and the most phenomenal wildlife experience on the planet makes this camp unique.


Best safari to date

My third safari in the Masai Mara and the best one.
The camp has around 15 tents and has a “boutique resort” feel to it. Personalised service, tents spaced from each other to provide a real out of Africa feel (as opposed to tents stacked up close to each other). Tents were comfortable with amazing views over the Mara.
