Located about 1hr drive away from the Mara, the lodge has its own reserve which was densely populated and provided interesting game drives. They provide also 'fun' experiences such as on a bike or quad bikes. I had a go at the bike and it was fun. The lodge has great viewing decks - on our last night they set... More

It is everything it appears to be from the photos on the web and more - luxurious accommodation, glorious views, amazing food and service, fabulous game drives and so flexible about everything. It is on our list of lifetime best experiences and we really hope to make... More

We wanted to take visiting family somewhere special, it was their first time in Africa so we booked Little Ollaro. Beforehand we were concerned that two couples, a child and an adult might be a little crowded but upon arrival we were dumbstruck. The welcome and location set the tone for the rest of the week. Olarro is about attention... More

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

The staff are exceptional, the design perfect, safari amazing,... More
