I spent 2 nights here and enjoyed it immensely. For those who want the real bush experience without the inconvenience of bush living... This is it. The tent was spacious and lovely. The bed even had flowers beautifully arranged on it to welcome me. The ensuite was perfect. The meals - all 3 included, couldn't be faulted. Evening entertainment around... More

This is a really nice fenced resort just outside of the Masai Mara national park. It is a very short distance to the entrance of the park, although this can take around 20 minutes due to the extremely poor quality of road. The resort itself is very nice, with each room being a large canvas tent (inside, equivalent to a... More

An excellent getaway experience away from the bustling city life with a masaai cultural and wilderness experience all in one. The camp is very close to the Masaai mara gate situated up the hill overlooking into the mara reserve. As a family we had a very good experience of staying in a tented camp within a serene surrounding of thick... More

I've been visiting Ol Tome for as long as 20 Years, before they became a tented camp and were primarily a luxury campsite. Not once have I left with a bad experience. They have always had a warm atmosphere, welcoming staff, great advice when we're there, safety, and very knowledgeable staff. The food is awesome, it's an actual bush experience,... More

Visited Oltome in May with a good friend of mine and we stayed for 2 nights. Very close to the park, nice facilities, amazing staff and a truly grounded and down to earth feeling make Oltome a great and very affordable bush-vacation experience. Would always recommend!

If you are looking for a five star luxury hotel teleported to Masai Mara then this is not the place for you. But if you want a real bush camp experience then please visit this place. It is set minutes from one of the main gates into the Masai Mara reserve. It comes complete with comfortable tents with adjoining bathrooms.... More
