"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."

"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."

"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."
