Your riverbank hideaway

With only 12 tents set on the banks of the Talek River in the shade of indigenous trees for incredible wildlife and landscape views, you could not be more ideally located to experience the magic of Maasai Mara National Park. You can choose between one of two wings, namely the East or West Wing. Each spacious suite has been thoughtfully designed to provide all the luxuries that enhance a safari.


Giving Back

Ilkeliani firmly believes that tourism should benefit the ecosystem, the wildlife and the local communities. The camp operates fully on solar power, grows its own fresh produce and helps guests live plastic free by providing refillable water flasks.

Ilkeliani Guides

Ilkeliani’s experienced safari guides know the region intimately. Most of the guides come from the local communities, and have been part of the team for many years. Having done their training in the Maasai Mara, developing their knowledge of the terrain and studying the behaviour of the resident animals, they are best placed to find even those creatures that love to conceal themselves. The camp’s vehicles have been specially designed for game viewing, with open sides, plenty of pouches for photographic equipment, and sockets for recharging batteries on the go. Wish a suspension bridge from the camp over the river into the reserve, Ilkeliani offers immediate access to the Mara Reserve from dawn until dusk.


Experience a specialised safari

At Ilkeliani you can fill your days with activities or enjoy the camp at leisure. The game-filled plains of the Maasai Mara offer all manner of activities, and guests can do as much or as little as they choose

"Everything here is simply excellent! The food was unreal, we weren't expecting such great food. The service here is also as good as it can get, everyone is very friendly and welcoming! The tented cabins are very nice and quite new. Lots of privacy between the tents. Power stays on 24/7. Highly recommend staying here."
"Everything was perfect, our room was amazing as well as the food and the staff, hats off to them they made our stay feel more like home. 5 star experience thanks for making our trip to Kenya a memorable one."

"This is an outstanding tented camp. The meals were excellent, and one of the few that offer an A la Carte menu for three meals a day. The service was outstanding, and the tents were very clean and extremely comfortable. Highly recommended."
Andy Harper
"Ilkeliani is incredible. We found it hard to decide where to stay in the Mara but our guide gave us great recommendations. Not only is Ilkeliani conveniently located in the middle of the park, it is also easily accessible by the main roads of Nairobi."
