Ilkeliani Camp


Ilkeliani is a eco-friendly permanent luxury tented camp, centrally located in the Maasai Mara. Camp environs have been intentionally preserved so as to feel as close as possible to nature. There are no paved pathways but instead raised earth provide grassy pathways. Lighting in guest tents is provided by solar power. The Bar Lounge and Dining Tents are lit by the hurricane lights, thereby ensuring you a sense of bygone safari days.

Ilkeliani has 15 tents with each guest tent positioned on the edge of the Talek River looking out onto the Masai Mara plains. Lighting is provided by solar power and all tents are ensuite with flush toilets and hot water showers 24 hours. Spacing of each guest tent was paramount, therefore tents are well spaced from the others ensuring you maximum privacy. Tents are large and airy with secluded veranda’s. Each tent has its own magnificent view of the Maasai Mara plains.

Ilkeliani was built with every effort to preserve the fragile Eco-system. Hot water showers are made possible by the burning of chardust or briquettes made from coffee husks which also burn twice as long as normal charcoal. Ilkeliani will thus remain small in size with only twelve tents to ensure that the eco-system remains in as natural and renewable state as possible.

Personal attention and care is paramount to their service delivery. Ilkeliani offers flexible meal timings to allow the guests the luxury of dictating the preference for meal times.
