My children (ages 6 and 8), husband and I went on safari and stayed here. It was awesome and the tents are perfect because they have toilets and hot water (from 5:30 pm until about 10am, I think). It was an authentic safari experience and it was also quite comfy!

Pros: this resort had the tastiest food we've had on our trip, but the selection was very small. The units are ensuite. The restroom is separated from the bedroom by a tent flap, so not that much privacy. Service was wonderful. Cons: the grounds are unkempt. From the outside, the lodge looks real terrible and dodgy. The tent zipper was... More

We stayed two nights in early April. The accommodation was better than expected, with only the sleeping accommodation actually "tented", but joined to a solid-structure shower and toilet facility. The staff and manager were so friendly and helpful. The food was really good, especially the breakfast, and we got a lovely packed lunch for our full day safari. The bar... More

Even though this is a tented camp the rooms have permanent in-suit bathrooms, which was nice. Warm water and electricity are only available during specific times, which was problematic when we arrived home early one day. However, they can turn the heat on if you ask (as we realized afterwards). This was a very cosy place with nice food and... More

Ol-moran is a tented camp not far from the Maasai mara entrance gate. It is run by the Maasai. The tents are clean and very comfortable.The foods are local and good. We went there with four people. We used Aslan Adventure Tours & Travel which was an excellent choice. The driver provided us with useful information and the car was... More

This is a tented camp outside the Masai Mara national reserve. We booked this one as it came up the cheapest option for us. It is outside the park so entrance fees are $10 more per person per day but it still came out to be cheaper. The service was excellent and so was the food. The chef took into... More

We had requested mid-range accommodation which I think accurately reflects Ol Moran. It is a small resort with basic and a little bit dated but comfortable tents which have en suite bathrooms. We stayed for two night, the bed was comfortable, the tent had an en suite bathroom, and there was electricity to charge things. We had been camping in... More

This was the last of several places we stayed on safari. The tents are fine, the hot water is hot but has a strong smell of rust. The electricity was generator and on early in the morning and evening. The food was very limited but adequate. The main issues we had were the noise and the focus on the locals... More

Spent three day at the Olmoran tent camping while on safari. . It was amazing! The services was over the top when we first got there after a dust ride we were met with warm wash clothes to clean our hands and face and the some refreshing juice to revive us after our long day of travel. Our tent was... More

Good setting, close to the gate, comfortable tents, plenty of adequate food. It was about 10 minutes from the gate so easy access. Also it was very peaceful. Once inside the park at lunch the pack lunches for the all day game drive were very filling and nice.
