I just returned home from the vacation of a lifetime. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty and taken in by the beauty of this breath taking place. The staff is so attentive, friendly and most of all kind. They pull out all the stops to make each day and game drive special and unique. From sundowners... More

Stunning location, exhilarating game drives, hikes and quad bike rides, exceptional personalised service, 5* food and wine list, luxurious accommodation - all within a staggeringly beautiful 3hr drive from Nairobi. I cannot rate Olarro highly enough. We have stayed in many lodges in Kenya and this one takes the platinum medal. This is my first time I have ever reviewed... More

I can't imagine how this place could possibly have been better. The location, rooms, service, food - truly, the whole experience was unbeatable. There were so many small touches (e.g., hot water bottles in the beds, moist towels to cool you off on the return from activities) that added to the overall excellence of the experience. This was my third... More

I have stayed in many lovely places in Kenya but Olarro beats all of them hands down. It is beautiful and is amazing value. The staff are great, the food is spectacular and the accommodation is to be seen to be believed. Nothing was too much trouble and it was all rounded off with some lovely finishing touches. I will...

This will be the first time I have ever reviewed any establishment on an online forum. The experience I had in the five days at Olarro Lodge has inspired me to share it with others in hopes that they too might enjoy the same experience. Going into this trip we were not sure what to expect. My boyfriend is among... More

After a lot of research, we decided to book a weekend at Olarro rather than a Maasai Mara Lodge. The reasonable resident's rates were a factor but also the secluded location in the loita hills and the private reserve. We definitely made the right decision. From arrival, it's clear that Olarro prides itself on attentive customer service and making your... More

We wanted a getaway from our home in Abu Dhabi and chose the lodge after reading the reviews. Glad we did, turned out to be one of the best holidays we ever had. The attention to detail that the staff and management exhibited was beyond compare. Special mention must be made to our Masai guides, Gerard and Junior, they really... More

This is quite simply one of the most beautiful places you will ever stay. The place itself is gorgeous and so wonderfully designed - the views are breathtaking - the staff are the best. The game drives are wonderful and you must do the sun downer drinks drive - sitting watching the sun go down with animals wondering about is... More

This place is truly fantastic with lovely rooms and really good food and service. Barbara the general manager looked after us really well as did the rest of the staff. The game drives are excellent with the added bonus of not seeing another vehicle from other lodges. It took just over three hours to drive there from Nairobi. We will... More
