On the banks of the Talek River
An elegant yet relaxed atmosphere for experiencing the full adventure of the African bush.
This description was written by Rebecca who recently visited this camp.
This uniquely situated luxury camp on the banks of the Talek River overlooks the mottled plains of the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Walking over the bridge and along the tree-lined path to camp reception is part of the experience, making you feel truly in the heart of the Masai Mara bush. Vast herds of wildlife co-exist with the colourful Masai people all year round on an infamous scale, but peak season for the zebra and wildebeest migration between June and October. The Masai Mara plays host to one of the most spectacular wildlife shows on earth the annual Great Migration of over a million wildebeest and zebra entering the Mara ecosystem from the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania. You can reach this camp by good quality roads and bridges that are continually maintained, making a road transfer a viable option from within Kenya. There is also an airstrip transfer available for those flying in.
Tipilikwani's 20 spacious tents, each named after an iconic Kenyan figure and each enjoying river frontage, are decorated with warm, rich Masai colours. The family tents have a stand-alone bath tub as well as showers. You’ll find excellent food, personalised service and traditional Kenyan hospitality. Dinner is served in a spacious open-sided dining area, privately on your tent veranda or under the stars in the bush. Wildlife literally walks, runs and flies through the unfenced camp meaning your game viewing opportunities are not limited to your game drives. I sat down to lunch and saw an impala dart through the gardens! After a full day of game related activities you can take a dip in the camp’s swimming pool and enjoy one of many delicious cocktails.
Morning and early evening game drives offer the unforgettable opportunity to enjoy the diversity of animals and birds living permanently in the Masai Mara, as well as many migratory species. You’ll be guided by experts in 4-wheel drive open-sided safari vehicles with a maximum of six guests per vehicle. Guided bush walks are also on offer at Tipilikwani Mara Camp. Guests can learn more about the Masai people through cultural visits and entertainment by local Masai warriors, proud pastoralists, many of whom still retain their traditional nomadic lifestyle.
