ILKELIANI CAMP – MASAI MARA RESERVE

Recently refurbished, Ilkeliani is set in the centre of the Masai Mara Reserve and is ideally placed to view the migration from July to September.

This small and intimate camp offers just 12 stylish new tented suites – including a two bedroomed family suite – a selection of viewing decks and a variety of activities including horse riding.

Dedicated to privacy and personal service, the camp offers a comfortable safari experience in the heart of the Mara Reserve and is a superb camp to enjoy the annual migration.

LOCATION

Ilkeliani is set in the heart of the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya and overlooking the Talek River.  The nearest airstrip is Ol Kiombo airstrip which is 25 minutes’ drive from the camp.

CAMP

Ilkeliani’s spacious tented suites have been designed to provide all the little luxuries that enhance a safari. Each suite has complete privacy, tucked into a grove of trees with its own private entrance.

Raised on stilts, each offers sweeping views across the Talek River onto the plains of the Maasai Mara. The suites have spacious wooden decks with detachable canvas sides, and are elegantly adorned with flowing fabrics, comfortable furnishings and subtle lighting.

The bathrooms, with views on all sides, include an indoor shower that opens to the outdoors, and have amenities made specifically for Ilkeliani from indigenous local plants. The luxury family suite, with a spacious living area between two bedrooms, is ideal for families or groups of friends.

ACTIVITIES AND WILDLIFE

Known for exceptional sightings of big cats, the reserve has extraordinary numbers of wildlife and birdlife. With rich savannah, riverine forests, lush woodland and natural springs, the Mara’s incredible diversity of terrain supports a remarkable variety of species. While there are huge numbers of resident animals and birds at all times of the year, these numbers swell during the Great Migration.  The game-filled plains of the Maasai Mara offer many activities and you can do as much or as little as you choose.

  • Game Drives
  • Guided walks
  • Village Visits
  • Horse riding
  • Balloon Safaris

GIVING BACK

Ilkeliani firmly believes that tourism should benefit the ecosystem, the wildlife and the local communities. The camp operates fully on solar power, and helps guests live plastic free by providing refillable water flasks and plentiful water stations. The camp has a tree nursery and an organic vegetable garden, and eco-friendly systems are in place for recycling, kitchen operation and waste disposal. Members of the local community make up the majority of the staff, and many have been trained at the camp. Should guests wish to contribute further to local communities, Ilkeliani has partnered with Pack for a Purpose to supply goods to local schools, clinics and projects.

ILKELIANI CAMP IS OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND

THE CAMP WELCOMES FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN OF ALL AGES AND THERE IS ONE FAMILY SUITE
