ilkeliani community support


Ilkeliani assists and involves the surrounding Masai communities of the game reserve in conserving their wildlife and environment. The camp provides for the Masai communities whereby they receive a bed night fee for every guest night in the camp. Unlike most camps in the Mara who charge their clients an extra "hidden" conservation fee, Ikeliani contributes to this cause directly from their profits . This enables the Masai to benefit from their natural resources in a sustainable and non-destructive way so to better able to care for their families and improve their standard of living. Ikeliani also recruits employees from the nearby community as far as possible. This contribution is then dedicated to social development projects in the community. Guests from time to time help with donations and contributions and Ilkeliani channels them to their appropriate causes.
Pack for a Purpose
ILkeliani Camp and its guests supports the local community, by donating books and equipment to a primary school through the Pack for a Purpose initiative. The Molibanny Primary school educates children between the ages of 6 to 13 years old.

Please visit Pack for a Purpose if you would like to know more about this initiative and how you can make a meaningful contribution to this school.

Molibanny primary School is located near the Masai Mara Game reserve . It educates children from the surrounding villages that are based on the edge of the Masai mara .

We will provide our guests with the transport from Ilkeliani Camp to the primary school which is 30 km in order for them to present their donation in person
