Ilkeliani Camp- Masai Mara

From: $200.00

Nestled in a river glade in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, the area is a favorite for elephants coming to drink from the river. Ilkeliani has been designed to combine the old traditional safari style with a modern and fresh feel. The camp offers only 17 tents and each commanding views of the plains and the wildlife action throughout the day. It is a permanent camp designed along eco friendly principles. The ethos is to leave a minimum foot print on nature.


Each well-equipped tent at Ilkeliani Camp is stylish with en suite bathroom. Tents are sited under a cluster of shady indigenous trees and you do feel that you are out in the wilderness. The interiors are spacious and comfortable featuring a front verandah with a day bed and canvas safari chairs. Home cooked meals combined with personal service contribute to an unforgettable safari experience.

Ilkeliani Camp offers guests a traditional safari experience with excellent facilities.

Rise early and go on a walking safari or dawn game drive, returning to the camp in time for breakfast. A morning game drive with your guide exploring the Masai Mara National Reserve on half day with picnic breakfast. Return to the camp in time for lunch and rest in your tent or relax on the veranda. Afternoon game drives return to camp in time for a shower, followed by a sundowner round the campfire, exchanging stories of the day with the other guests. Dinner by candlelight completes the day, after which an askari will guide you to your tent.
