A fantastic stay while on Safari in Masai Mara. The lodgings, a combination of tents with first-rate hotel-like amenities, provided for a truly authentic experience. Moreover, the staff, service, food and activities cumulatively made it a thoroughly enjoyable stay for the entire family. Definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for something "outside-the-box," more familial, comfortable, natural, and different... More

I was truthfully afraid of staying in the middle of the jungle but the unique experience and atmosphere of the oltome resort was absolutely fantastic! The luxury tents and dining experience is definitely one I would recommend and without doubt I would stay there again! All the staff were friendly and welcoming making every night a special moment to remember... More

After some of the places we stayed in Kenya, walking into Ol Tome was like walking back into civilization. Although not as schwanky as some of the camps in the park, Ol Tome Mara Magic has luxurious tents, hot showers, great food, and wonderful staff! Staying in a tent nestled in the jungle minutes away from the park, hearing wild... More

Me and three friends recently stayed there while on Safari in Masai Mara. We were also the only ones there. The lodge is outside the park - but only a 5 minute drive away. We stayed in two tents - two twin beds in each. The tents were very nice and large with a big bathroom - two sinks and... More

I have to say our stay here was one of the highlights of our Kenya trip. The tents offer a realy 'staying in the jungle' experience but are still equipped with modern facilities and are very clean. You feel extremely safe because you know there are people all around protecting the grounds which are well kept and taken care of.... More

The staff are very friendly and also approachable, they took into consideration of everything that we needed or required to enjoy our stay. The food was very tasteful and delicious. The... More
