Located on the edge of the Siria escarpment and overlooking the Mara River, Kilima Camp offers guests an exceptional opportunity to experience the Masai Mara. Kilima, meaning 'mountains' or 'little hill' in Swahili, offers stylish tented suites in an intimate setting. The camp has a strong eco tourism ethos with a partnership with the local community and conservation efforts.

Enjoy exciting game drives, guided bush walks and even hot-air balloon trips over the Mara plains while staying at Kilima Camp. Excursions to the nearby community school and Masai manyatta can also be arranged. While the area is great for year-round game viewing, from July to October guests here can witness the Great Migration, a time when one million wildebeest and zebra cross the Mara River.
