The location is great for Mara safaris but the facility is nothing special. The food is also merely average. Obviously with the remote nature of the park you can't expect the same quality of food as in other parts of the country but it was the least favorite place of the 5 we stayed at in Kenya. The rooms are... More

A change in our travel plans had us make a last minute trip to the Mara. We ended up at this permanent tented camp with only 2 days notice. In a garden setting it is cool and scenic. The rains in the Mara were late this year, the grass was too long and there were few animals spotted. I'm not... More

I stayed at Ol-Moran late 2014 and had booked my stay there with a travel agency. I was aniticipating something quite nicer for being ranked 3 star and was quite surprised how basic it was. I find that the website is quite deceptive with it's pictures and presentation of who they are. It's okay to be a basic, minimal camp,... More

I spent two days with colleagues in this camp. we traveled on a rain day from Nairobi but after traveling for a few kilometers we left rains behind and our first stop was at the view point. when we got to Masai Mara it was raining again and that is why it was so exciting. Roads there are covered with... More

A more simple camp but with good service and food. The tents were very clean and fresh. The location is quiet and the nature is very nice. The camp is not located in the park but jut a 10 min drive from the gate.

The service was excellent and they accommodated our schedule due to the game drives. The rooms are cozy and the beds are very comfortable. There are shower and generator times - just accept it - and there was lots of hot water. The food was very good. Their bar prices are very reasonable but do recommend bringing a cooler with... More

Ol Moran was a basic Tented Camp close to the entrance of Masai Mara National Park. The tents were comfortable and the bed provided a good night's sleep. The staff was friendly and explained the rules/times for electricity and so we could take hot water showers. Food and the service was very good at whatever time was convenient for you.... More

Having been misdirected at the main gate, it took us the better half of the afternoon to find the camp which is, as other reviewers have pointed out, not in the Mara itself. The access road is pretty terrible but once you get to the camp, it is a lovely little oasis of green and quiet. The staff were attentive... More
