This is indeed the best place I have ever been. Attention to details as far as you eyes can see, gourmet food (actually finger leaks), breath taking view, attractive excursions. Because all this run so smooth, you might expect to find a platoon of managers behind the scenes while all in in Mrs. Barbara's hands and her wonderful and knowledgeable... More

This review is long overdue. We stayed here for three nights in April 2014. From the time we arrived here to the time we left, everything was perfect. The location was an easy ride from Nairobi. The staff at the lodge were very helpful and made the stay truly comfortable. Benjamin, the manager of the lodge was very friendly and... More

Stayed here recently at the beginning of a ten night stay in Kenya arranged by Africa Rose Travel. Truly amazing location which is an easy drive from Nairobi. Beautifully furnished and decorated and the best food I have eaten anywhere. Lots of activities including quad biking, bicycling and game drives. A new conservancy so game is returning. Perfect place for... More

Nikki the lodge's manager, could not of been more gracious and friendly, we all felt right at home. We were traveling with our daughter and boyfriend and our Maasai friend and driver. We all really enjoyed our... More

Our whole Family (2 adults and two kids aged 2 and 5) stayed 4 days at Olarro. This was our first African experience and Olarro had been strongly recommended by friends. We stayed at Little Olarro and it is absolutely stunning: tasteful design and decoration, beautiful layout and full privacy from the other rooms. The level of service was second... More

The Masai Mara is synonymous with Kenya, zebra and wildebeest. Well Olarro can offer you all of this while at the same time being away from the maddening crowd of Mara visitors. It is not inside the Mara but close enough that the drive will keep you entertained. With 9 rooms you are not going to feel crowded and the... More

I was stunned by its location, although slightly further away than some other Masai MAra lodges, this stuns the senses, with superb manager who has oodles of experience to wow even the most travel wary. Excellent for children as they are on a private concession, the chances to meet Masai at the river, and go for a walk and newly... More

Upon the advice of a Nairobi expat, I booked a long weekend at Olarro. The lodge is situated in the "greater Mara" and for those who don't want to be right on top of the Mara, it's a great spot. Upon arrival, we were greeted by an extremely enthusiastic and friendly guard. Olarro is situated on a conservancy and there... More
