Ol Tome Mara Magic Resort is managed based on the nature around. In the morning and The evening a Masai person lights the wood fire, half an hour later you can have a warm shower. During the day and the middle of the night, there is no electricity. The resort has only seven tents for visitors and a few for... More

I visited Mara in late July for two nights. This place is great. The hosts are very welcoming. The manager Faheem is a nice and interesting guy you gotta talk to. The room was clean and spacious. The only downside was that hot water wasn't reliable, but the hotel crew was quick on fixing it. Frankly, I wasn't expecting reliable... More

Oltome Mara was beautiful and very relaxing. The bathrooms are nicely designed and spotless, and the abundance of trees on the property provides a much-needed shady counterpoint to the grasslands, especially in the dry season. The staff are friendly, but without the usual endless stream of small talk that neither party wants to engage in, which is refreshing. The beds... More

Stayed at Oltome over the Xmas holidays and I must say it was a wonderful experience! The tents were very clean and we got the bush experience that we were looking for. The best part about the camp is that it operates on solar power not generator so there is no noise and we had power all night. The camp... More

I stayed here only one night but I'll definitely be coming back and staying longer next time. The service from Faheem and his staff was exceptional and the room was very clean and comfortable. The visits from the local Maasai were great and the meal buffets were delicious! Could not recommend this place more highly.

Living at Oltome Mara Magic was undeniably one of the best experiences of my life! The location is great, and the tents are spacious, clean and absolutely charming. There's a little porch on the outside to relax with a book and just absorb all of the Mara's beauty. The staff was extremely well-mannered and helpful, attending to the pettiest of... More
