Ilkeliani Camp Location Map

Nestled in a river glade in the Masai Mara Game Reserve, in an area that is a favourite for elephants coming to drink from the Talek River, Ilkeliani Camp consists of only 17 tents - each commanding views of the plains and the wildlife action throughout the day.

Rise early and go on a morning game drive, returning to the camp in time for breakfast. Or if you prefer, you can take a picnic breakfast out with you, and return to the camp in time for lunch.

Before the afternoon game drive departs, enjoy a rest in the shaded tent or relax on the veranda of your tent, watching the game go by.

After your afternoon game drive, you will return to camp and enjoy a sundowner round the campfire, exchanging stories of the day with the other guests. Dinner by candlelight completes the day, after which an askari will guide you to your tent.

Alternatively, for the ultimate safari experience, begin your day with a hot air balloon ride cutting through the cool air of the plains as herds of elephant, buffalo and zebra scatter in search of food below you. Upon landing, you are treated to a breakfast and your guide will then take you either back to the camp for a well deserved nap or continue on a game drive. The camp can also arrange walks outside the main reserve with an armed ranger, in a neighbouring Conservancy area. Costs for both these extra activities are available on request.

The 17 tented rooms are raised up slightly on earth mounds, overlooking the river and the plains. These mounds are covered in vegetation, and feel quite natural, and each one has been sited under its own cluster of shady indigenous trees and you do feel like you are out in the wilderness.

The staff at ilkeliani Camp have been primarily hired from the surrounding villages, and depending on your game viewing schedule, guests can also arrange an additional trip to outside the reserve to visit their Masai homesteads.

Start TestimonialThank you for the excellent service provided, even more considering such a short lead time. The camp [Ilkeliani Camp] was exactly what I was looking for, with the right balance of quality and service. Major advantage of the camp is the little bridge over the river that limits the reserve. This way, just by crossing it on foot to the vehicles on the other side, already in the reserve we are able to start the safari right away. By this we save a good 30m each way between the camp and the reserve, which is an extra hour for relaxing we have per day. The balloon ride was also a success. So overall I enjoyed a lot every moment. I am surely recommending your services.End Testimonial
