Situated on the banks of the Talek River and overlooking the vast plains of the Masai Mara, Tipilikwani Mara Camp is an exclusive and intimate tented safari camp on the eastern border of the Masai Mara National Reserve. Ideal for those who want an authentic Mara experience, the camp radiates the warmth of the local people and gives you ample opportunity to explore and learn about these incredible surroundings.

Get up early in the morning to go on thrilling game drives to spot the Big 5 and many other plains game and savannah wildlife. You could also enjoy a balloon safari one morning and enjoy a champagne breakfast as you land. Set out on walking safaris in the company of Maasai guides who will share their knowledge of these lands.

Traveller Reviews

  • Our favourites were Tiliplikwani Mara in Kenya and Rosenhorf in Westen Cape, South Africa. Both accommodation offers a very exclusive feeling, the staff especially in the restaurants are very attentive, friendly and kind. The food is very delicious with generous servings. We have stayed in various 5-star big brand names hotel, but personally they cannot compare to the service we received from those two. For example even the bedrooms have good pantry area with complementary cookies, assortment of tea/ coffee brands etc. A good spread of complementary ‘organic’ chemical free toiletries products. Our beds were warmed with warm bottled water just after dinner. They have very accommodating staff who seems sincere and takes lots of pride in their work. The itineraries you have planned were great. Just the right scope without being too hectic. The tour guides were very knowledgeable, thoughtful and informative. We enjoyed every parts of it. In Kenya, we were very lucky to spot all the big five and more.

  • What an amazing time I had - it was sensational! The Tipilikwani was really really nice - so strange, no hotel key, just a zipper! I loved it!

"I love the massive tents at Tipilikwani - the decor is understated and relaxing. Being on the Talek River is an additional bonus as the wildlife comes to you."
