Oltome Mara Magic was a real getaway in the jungle! Don't let the hours of dirt roads and avoiding herds of cattle and occasionally elephants deter you, this relaxed Lodge is well worth it. The lodge is small compared to the others we stayed at on our trip, with only 13 tents, but this means the service is personal in... More

The Oltome camp is located just 15-20 mins away from one of the main gates to the Mara. The tented camp is described as 'budget luxury' and it certainly fits the bill. The room is spacious and the bathroom is tiled and has hot running water available The manager and staff are very friendly and the service is great. I... More

Just a few minutes away from the main gate, very friendly staff and management. We were treated to delicious meals and also had the chance of getting a dish which was not on the menu and which the management gladly availed.

The staff at Oltome Mara Magic go our of their way to make your stay great. The service was truly excellent. The accommodations and board are fairly simple, but the quality well exceeds the modest price. The camp is very close to the park, so it's a perfect option for budget travelers.

The rooms were well done and the friendly staff even came to give us a wake up call at 4am for our balloon safari. As we were traveling on our anniversary,... More

Small but very nice lodge situated at the gates of the park. No luxury but very simple and convenient. Very friendly and helpful people. Good ratio price / quality. Not a big choice of foodstuff but what was offered was of good quality.
