Ilkeliani is an eco-friendly permanent tented camp, centrally located in the Maasai Mara. Camp environs have been intentionally preserved so as to feel as close as possible to nature.
Ilkeliani has 17 tents with each guest tent positioned on the edge of the Talek River looking out onto the Maasai Mara plains.
Guest tents are also well spaced out thereby ensuring that guests have maximum privacy. Lighting is provided by solar power and all tents are en suite with flush toilets and hot water showers 24 hours (we use a recycled by-product as fuel to keep the boilers hot).
Ilkeliani is the name given to the age group of the young Maasai warrior. The young warrior is thus an ilkeliani before he becomes the il Moran.To become a warrior is the dream of every Maasai youth; the word itself seems to convey magical powers.
The Ilkeliani experience is one enjoyed entirely under canvas, and a very personal affair…
