Imagine a bush camp in the middle of a forest, with gorgeous aviary, located on a peninsula surrounded by a harshly flowing river. This is the short description of Olumara camp. As you get to the camp, you will find that there's a bridge that navigates over to the camp itself. This bridge crosses over one of the mighty tributaries...

I booked a 3 night safari through Njema Ecosafaris of Nairobi. The proprietor of Njema, a guy called Steve Kimkung recommended this safari as being of great quality, at a reasonable price. I was not disappointed! I flew in from Nairobi and I was met by David, my safari driver, who made sure that my park passes were sorted and...

This is an incredibly luxurious and comfortable camp. Those are hotel rooms in canvas, same comfort while allowing the guests to hear the local fauna during the night: baboons, lions, hyenas, and so on.Beautiful place.

Stayed in Sept 2013. Very impressed. Staff could not be more helpful. Big thunderstorm did not effect the tent which was very comfortable. Thoroughly recommend the Olumara camp. Food very good and wine and beer reasonably priced, considering where you are.

We stayed for 2 nights from 2nd August 2013. We were on a safari van and the drive was a bit nerve cracking. Not sure if our driver took the right road, because we were along on dirt and gravel road for more than 3 hours. We did not see any other safari vehicles, though there were plenty coming to...

We stayed here as part of our safari with WT safaris (great safari company btw). It took us a fair amount of time to actually find the lodge, but once we did it was more than worth it. This was our favourite camp from our whole safari. The tents were amazing, the grounds were beautiful and the food was great!...

We arrived at Olumara on January 11, 2013 after spending a few days at the Amboseli Game reserve. It took us nearly 8 hours to get there!!! A 4x4 vehicle is a MUST have. To get to the lodge and certain areas of the Masai Mara, you need to drive through river banks and mud..... great way to get your...

There are other camps and then there is Olumara ! It stands out for its elegance and out of the world location for more than one reason !
