This is by far the best accommodation anyone can find in Kenia. It is located within Masai Mara Reserve, so it’s the only five starts hotel than can offer the convenience of waking up and taking a safari right away because you are already in it. Not only the hotel is luxurious as hell -wherever you come from-, but the stuff is so devoted, dedicated to make your stay so so easy and fun without being too heavy on the guests. The tents should not be even called like that cos’ they are so perfect to the last detail. And the food and drinks are high quality. Everything is. This is one in a lifetime experiences you can have so don’t doubt to take this accommodation over any other because it’s worth every cent you pay and, in fact, it is cheap for how much you get. Thanks to everyone who attended us for making this our yet best travel we have had. Recommended a 100%, by someone picky as hell.

The Olare Mara Kempinski is an excellent Safari camp with great service. The high level of service already started before our arrival, when Dominic Sakut, the camp manager reached out to us to ensure everything will be as we would like. The small and intimate camp has 12 very comfortable and luxurious tents a long a small river with beautiful views on the savanna. The lobby, lounge and restaurant are all slightly elevated and very tastefully decorated without drifting into “safari kitsch”. The restaurant is well supervised by Moses and his team and we enjoyed every meal tremendously. The perfectly located pool ensures not only nice sunbathing between the game drives, but also a pleasant water temperature. Strangely we were the only ones using it - what could be nicer then a dip into pool and some sun in the afternoon between game viewing. The quality of a Safari camp certainly greatly depends on the quality of the game drives and your guide. We had Eric, a local Masai, who not only was an excellent guide, but also a great guy to be with. Thanks to him we had a wonderful experience in the tracking leopards, cheetahs and on our last early morning game drive wonderful and majestic lions. Overall a great experience and I can’t wait to come back.

What a wonderful stay we had! Beautifully designed camp, managed by amazing staff well led by Dominic. David the chef, Moses, Michael and Kevin made our meal times special. We always found our tent neat and tidy thanks to Paul. We felt safe at all times, all COVID precautions were adhered to without compromising on service. The game drives were the highlight of the trip....Philip our guide is a master of his trade, very humble and passionate about conservation. He shared interesting facts about wildlife and pleasantly surprised us with his photography skills. The tree planting activity is a commendable initiative. All in all, no request was left unfulfilled with the staff always striving to go out of their way to meet our expectations. The cherry on the cake was the surprise sundowner experience amidst a pride of lions guarding their kill from a pack of almost 20 hyenas!!!! Keep up the stellar work. Hope to visit again.
