We stayed here only for one night, very near to the Amboseli National Park's gate. This place is the best, absolute silence and with clear view of Mount Kilimanjaro (on a clear day), a drinking pound where Gazelle, Elephants often come to drink water and you can watch them very closely. Camp's are very relaxing, with good service, gentle and...

My family and I just return from a 12 day safari in Kenya. One of the tented lodges we stayed at was Kilima Safari Camp. The place is gorgeous and the staff very friendly. Our tents were a combination of tent and hotel room. There was a sliding door which locked! (We had keys!) Inside was a real floor, real...

Stayed here 2 nights as part of a safari tour with Collette. Of the 3 camps we stayed in this is my favorite as far as the room goes. It is not really a tent - it has sliding doors that are locked with a skeleton key. The room is large and very comfortable. The only drawback was I was...

Though I have not tried all of the accomodations at or near the Amboselli game park, from what I have observed the Kilima Safari Camp is one of the best. The so-called tents exceeded most luxury hotel rooms and the location is right at the front gate of the park. The large outdoor dining area is very nice and on...

This is a comfortable place, located very close to the entrance of the beautiful Amboseli Park, but beware it is big and operating more like a large hotel than a small camp. The main reservation we had related to the food, which really left much to be desired. On the other hand, the pool was great.

This camp has many great advantages. Location so close to Kimana Gate is wonderful for early morning game drives and access to the swamps full of elephant. The tents are large and contain everything that you would expect from a decent hotel in a city. And the staff are all helpful, attentive and eager to make your stay enjoyable.

The "tents" were better than some hotel rooms I have seen. Yes, there may have been a few more bugs and geckos than I'm used to, but as far as camping goes, it was very plush. The tents are so beautifully decorated and high end. The bathrooms are gorgeous, with sliding doors and double sinks. Great shower. The buffet meals...

We stayed here for two nights while on photo safari with my 12-yr-old daughter. Located right next to the entrance to Amboseli as well as at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the location was hard to beat. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities are relatively new and in excellent condition. I did find myself wishing...

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon trip to Kenya. This was the second night of our safari trip. We had journeyed from Tsavo East to Amboseli and had experienced Kenyan roads at their finest! Amboseli was brilliant as a reserve and we saw elephants, hippos, baboons and lions, along with a variety of other creatures. The camp was...

Loved this camp. Rooms were very comfortable with a great view of Kilimanjaro all day long. Great food, the staff is just SO friendly that they make the stay just so comfortable and pleasant.
