Our stay in Olarro lodge was a complete DREAM from start to end. Nice and 'chique' accomodation, superfriendly staff, great food & wine, nice pool, superoffering of activities. It is 'outside' of Masai Mara, and yes there were fewer animals (we spent the day after in Mara) but honestly the experience was 20 times better, Mara feels like a zoo... More

I don't know where to start...Olarro is just amazing! We stayed in this truly beautiful lodge in August. The hospitality, the great attention to details and the sincere desire to make our stay unforgettable were the best I've ever experienced...and I'm an "african safari" addict! Our cottage was lovely, clean and luxurious, with all the amenities you could dream of... More

Easily the best safari lodge I’ve stayed in. Everything that a lodge should offer, and more – fine little touches like the eucalyptus scented towels and fresh pineapple juice when you arrive at, or return to the lodge after a day out in the bush, and warm water bottles secreted in your bed in the evenings; bush nights can get...
