Located on the banks of the Talek River, overlooking the famous savannah plains of the Mara, the eco-friendly Ilkeliani Camp, a luxury tented camp, offers just 17 elegant tents, each with its own ensuite bathroom, private verandah and view of the river. Presented in the style elegant hunting safaris of the 1920s, the camp features its own elegant mess tent and bar.
World renowned for the breathtaking spectacle of ‘the greatest wildlife show on earth', the awe inspiring annual migration of the wildebeest, the Mara is Kenya's most visited protected area. Technically an extension of Tanzania's renowned Serengeti National Park, the Mara constitutes only 4% of the entire Serengeti ecosystem but its rolling grasslands, meandering rivers and towering escarpments offer one of the world's most rewarding and evocative wildlife arenas.
The Masai Mara is 270 miles from Nairobi (five hours by road).
There are 17 luxury tents each with its own view of the river. Widely spaced, the tents offer 24-hour solar power, ensuite bathrooms (24-hour hot water, showers, flush WCs), spacious verandahs and elegant furniture.
DINING & BARS
All meals are prepared by the camps chefs, offering hearty breakfasts, alfresco lunches and candle light dinners in the Mess Tent. Picnic breakfast/ Lunches are prepared if you prefer to stay out and explore the reserve all day long. A camp fire is lit from 6 pm onwards and the safari experience is shared with fellow guests while enjoying a “tusker”/drinks. Bitings are served with Sundowner.
