Kilima Camp, Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Kilima means mountain in Swahili, and is a perfect name for this camp, perched high on the Siria escarpment overlooking the Masai Mara.
There are twelve standard tents and two deluxe tents, spread out on each side of the mess tent. Each tent is made of sand-colored canvas, and inside they are decorated in neutral bush colors. Outside the tents all have a verandah, with canvas safari chairs to admire the view from. To the rear of the tents are en suite bathrooms with flush loos and bucket showers. The deluxe tents are more spacious and can accommodate three adults, a child aged up to 16 and a baby.
Meals and relaxation focus on the mess tent at the heart of the camp. As from everywhere in camp, there are spectacular views from the mess tent over the plains. Food is generally good, international style food, reflecting the European background of the camp's founders. A short way in front lies the campfire. As dusk falls, the fire is lit, and it's a perfect spot to sit with a cool drink, discussing the day's game viewing and watching the stars rise over the horizon.
Where possible the camp tries to run along eco-friendly lines, operating on solar lighting and electricity, and recycling water and waste. The camp also works closely with the local community, and a visit to the village during your stay is a very special experience.
