I'm torn as to whether to give this camp three or four stars, because it really depends on what you're expecting. If you're expecting luxury, you'll be disappointed. If you're expected camping, you'll be pleasantly surprised. My wife and I stayed 2 nights at this tented camp just outside Masai Mara game reserve as part of a 10-day safari trip... More

We should have stayed here for 2 nights but... when it rains the river that separates the area where the tented camp is located from Masai Mara is swelling and you can say bye bye to your things if you are caught on the wrong side of the river. So we have stayed here only one night. We arrived here... More

In the 9 weeks I have travelled through Africa, my definite highlight was my Safari to th the Masai Mara. This lodge was in a great location, and I am not one for roughing it up so the luxury tents were just my style. I liked having a bathrooms in the tent, with all the facilities. The only downside is... More

We stayed here two nights. We were the only guests and were well-looked after, even having four security guards at night. The guards were very obvious and we were not worried about security at all. Food was simple but fresh. We were on safari and did not expect a five star buffet! Our room had solar power only and this... More

We stayed here 3 nights. It's outside of the Masai Mara and not a good road to drive. It could be a shortcut but even this road was a long drive to go the places where you need to be to see a lot of wild animals.Ok, here at the camp are also possibilities to see wild animals but is... More

This is a rather simple tented camp. The tents are clean, the shower hot... What more do you need? The restaurant is also located in a tent. When we were here we were the only guests in the camp. The chef still offered us several options for lunch and dinner and the food was very, very nice. Maybe not so... More

Newly opened (2013). Very friendly staff, all of whom were very willing to please. Good food and the chef made great efforts – and fantastic soups! Beautifully situated for touring the Masai Mara. Good quality spacious tents.

Having been sold this as a luxury tented camp and looked on the website to confirm we arrived to find it was anything but. We had to be moved as we had no shower in one tent and when we were moved to the newer tents we still had a broken shower which they could not fix. There were no... More

From the 2nd to the 5th of august I had the pleasure of staying at Elangata Olerai Camp in Masai Mara with my wife and some friends. I have already stayed at the camp 2 times before travelling on my own, and I have been very pleased about it. When I came back to Denmark in Febuary after my second... More
