Kilima Safari Camp

Reviewed 4 June 2017 via mobile

The lodge is situated just 100 mtrs. from the gate outside Amboseli. It is part of the Mada Hotels. The lodge consists of a couple of safari tents with a fabulous view on mount kilimanjaro. The safari tents are spacious with safari style furniture and annex enlarged bathroom. After the safari you can chill out on the veranda in front of your tent. There is a huge swimmingpool with bar. The restaurant (near the reception) is relatively big, but cosy. In the centre of the restaurant is a 3-storey high tower with a marvelous view of the park and the mountain. Just a perfect location for the first coffee in the morning before you start a safari. The food is good with a lunch menu and breakfast and dinner buffet. Before and after the dinner you can enjoy a drink in the luxury bar next to the restaurant. The prices for the drinks are normal. The staff is really friendly and always present to assist you. I really can recommend this lodge as a starting point for a safari in beautiful Amboseli Park.

Nice lodge, Friendly Staff, 3 storey watch tower overlooking the waters hole, spacious room and nicely spaced out. Best of all was the massive swimming pool. Thank you Kilima. Will be visiting again shortly.

Stop by and grab a cold beer on the 3rd floor Observation Deck at sunset. Look out across Amboseli National Park and out toward Mt. Kilimanjaro. A great, relaxing view. A memorable vista and experience.

Had a wonderful stay at Kilima Lodge between December 10-12. The tented cottages are well appointed in furnishings and fittings. The view of Mt. Kilimanjaro from the cottage was breathtaking when she was not being shy and hidden in clouds.
The staff were courteous and made us feel comfortable at the location. Plan to return soon.

Kilima Safari Camp is downright luxurious compared to the other places I stayed during my trip to Kenya. The rooms are amazing. They are actually huge, modern tents with big, beautiful bathrooms attached to them. The best part is that the hotel is just a one-minute drive from Amboseli National Park’s Kimana Gate, and you can see animals along the road and from the observation tower. The hotel's food and service were also quite good.

Although Kilima Safari Camp is great for seeing animals, it is extremely remote. The last leg of the drive to the hotel is very rough. And all of the hotel's electricity comes from a generator that only runs certain hours of the day, which makes it difficult to charge electronic devices and use the wifi. But the wifi never seemed to be working, anyway.

The staff were very helpful and inviting. The food was really good. The landscape of the property seemed a bit overgrown, we were the only guests and were given rooms without a view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The manager told us they would have a campfire after supper for us, however when we went to see it the staff didn't seem to know anything about it. Very disappointing. The camp is very close to the park entrance and so a nice place to stay.

Wow, what a wonderful hotel with the most amazing staff. We stayed here for two nights at the end of a safari tour and what an end it was. The facilities were fantastic, the food magnificent and the staff were wonderfully attentive and could not do enough for us. Our room was huge and beautifully laid out, with a wonderful bathroom. The hotel is well laid out and very quiet. After dinner in the evening there were members of staff to walk us back to our rooms with torches which was a lovely gesture. The food was wonderful and on our last night we were treated to a meal under the stars, many thanks to Paul and his wonderful team for a perfect end to our time at Kilima.
