An A**** rating to Olarro lodge, the location and scenery is awesome . Stayed for 4 nights with my folks and none of us wanted to leave! Where do I start? Our whole experience was unforgettable from the minute we stepped into Olarro, we had first class treatment throughout. A massive thank you to Mr Mwaponga (Assistant GM) who took... More

We spent four days at Olarro, and my words would be a shameful understatement of the amazing time we had. We arrived at Olarro the next morning after flying from the US, tired, hungry and jet lagged! As soon as we pulled in to the drive way, we found the entire staff waiting to meet us with warm wash towels... More

The most peaceful place I have ever been, very helpful staff, the food is delicious and plenty! It is very clean and family friendly too. And the game drives were awesome, very skilled driver and guide. I would definitely go back.

I have finally finished editing the photographs and will upload when I can! I travelled with Kristine, the other reviewer and I second everything she said. It really one of the best experiences I have ever had. From the moment we were picked up to the moment we left, we were spoiled rotten and I'm not sure how we'll ever... More

superb by any standards, we were fortunate enough to go during a quiet period but I have no fear that they would be as attentive if the lodge were full. cannot recommend highly enough,,,,the staff are amazing, your designated driver will pick you up from the transport exchange. Micheal was our driver,,,, brilliant driver, very knowledgeable and a good laugh... More

I have been lucky enough to have travelled extensively in the Mara thanks to my work as a wedding photographer/travel journalist and I have to say I think I like Olarro the best. Its situated on its own conservation and the game may not be as prolific as the more central areas of the Mara, but there is plenty to... More

Without a doubt the best holiday I have ever had! From the first moment the staff are amazing. Every want and wish is catered for often before its requested. The guides are very knowledgable and can spot things from miles away. The place is beautiful, the activities are excellent and I don't know what else anyone could want from a... More

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
