Overview of Tipilikwani Mara Camp
Between June and October, the Maasai Mara plays host to one of the most spectacular wildlife shows on earth the great annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebra as they enter the Mara ecosystem from the Serengeti in neighboring Tanzania. Tipilikwani’s 20 tents enjoy river frontage and are decorated with warm, rich Maasai colors. The family tents have a stand-alone bathtub in addition to showers. Excellent food, personalized service, and traditional Kenyan hospitality further compliment the prime location.
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. Guests can also learn more about the Masai people, proud pastoralists and warriors, many of whom still retain their traditional nomadic lifestyle.
