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.
Game watch and game viewing by car, on foot or horse back, is superb all year round.

Oloololo Gate, the entrance to the Masai Mara National Reserve and the Mara Triangle is at the foot of the Siria (also called Oloololo escarpment) and is just a fifteen to twenty minute drive away from the camp. Kilima Camp is the perfect base from which to start your safari game drive and explore the Masai Mara plains and its African wildlife. The Mara Triangle is the most preserved and unspoiled part of the Masai Mara with very few camps and lodges, resulting in the lowest density of visitors and cars in the greater Masai Mara.
