After 40 years of dreaming about taking a trip to Africa, I settled on a blended trip of giving back to a community as well as going on a safari. Nelson and his staff treated us as family and delivered on every aspect of this adventure. We fell in love with the community and it's people while seeing the most... More

I am playing catch up on some well overdue reviews. My wife and I stayed at Oldarpoi Mara Camp in 2012. Nelson was our point of contact when booking and communicating through e-mail. He was prompt with replies and safari planning and offered the best pricing available. You are asked for a wire transfer deposit up front, which is standard... More

My husband and I spent eight nights at the camp. We classify Oldarpoi to be a basic camp as you cannot compare it to the 5* lodges you see advertizing in all the trendy travel magazines. But Oldarpoi has something unique. There is friendliness, personal interacitons and hospitality from such warm hearted people that will be hard to find at... More

We have just returned from a three week trip to Kenya and Tanzania staying at six different camps. Oldarpoi Maasai Camp was my family's favourite. The staff were extremely helpful, the location was perfect for the game reserve and the atmosphere was relaxed. I liked the fact that the money you are paying to stay is all invested back into...

A lovely and wonderful camp near the Sekane gates of Maasai Mara. A great crew of big-hearted people who support the local community. A visit is worthwhile The tents are comfortable, clean and have their own toilet and hot shower. I did enjoy my stay there.

My family visit Oldarpoi and had a wonderful time. The staff was skilled and generous. They where open to suggestions and they took us to places we never would see. The safari was great. In the night, when you sleep in the tent, you can here hyenas and other animals. The nature is breathtaking. If you are interested to make... More

At the beginning of this month, my wife and I spent four days and three nights at the Oldarpoi Mara Camp near the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. We were more interested in interacting with the Maasai people than in the game drives because we had just been to Kruger National Park in South Africa and had seen all... More

Oldarpoi was awesome and exceeded our expectations! In May my partner and I visited for 4-days/3 nights. I highly recommend the camp. On our safari days, we spent 10-plus hours in the park seeing animals (cheetah, leopard, lions, and innumerable zebra and gazelles just to name a few). The sky and landscape are spectacular. May's the height of the rainy... More

I had a fantastic time spending 2 days here. Nelson and his staff did a spot on job making my friends and I feel welcome while also taking care of our needs. I highly recommend this if you're interested in Maasai culture.
