A wonderful camp in the heart of wildlife, with beautiful scenery and a great place to relax and feel special. The staff are very friendly and the camp is very beautiful and comfortable, the tents are great, safe and have a wild Africa feeling with European luxury. I had a great time and will never forget such an experience....will definitely... More

Last month I stayed at Elangata Olerai Camp in Masai Mara for a couple of days. I felt relaxed and comfortable from the very beging of my stay. In the reception the staff greeted me welcome with a cool refreshment, which was just what I needed after the long drive from Nairobi. I was shown to my ”room”, which wasnt... More

I found the camp to be wonderful. When I was there, I felt as if I was in the movie, "Out of Africa". The location, the amenities and the staff are top notch and I would recommend to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Masai Mara. I had the trip of a lifetime, and now have so... More

We had the pleasure of just returning from Elangata Olerai. Our stay consisted of five days and four nights, and we completely enjoyed the camp. I just read the review of Tampann, and I‘m glad I hadn’t read it before having the opportunity to see it for myself. I have been to camps in Masai Mara National Reserve, Amboseli National... More

I just came back from Masai Mara where I stayed to Elangata Olerai Tented Camp for 4 days and found it to be a very peaceful tented camp. My tent was very large and had a view of a hill in the park, so I spent my time after the safari watching the wild animals on the hill. The food... More

To stay at Elangata Olerai is like walking into a film, you become a part of the wildlife on the savannah. Beautiful surroundings and excellent tents. The staff makes you feel "special" as if they are there just for you, we love it!

Masai Mara National Reserve will always be one of the best experiences of my life. It is truly awe-inspiring and breathtaking in its natural beauty and grace. The Elangata Olerai added to our safari experience in so many ways. First, the grounds of the camp are absolutely beautiful. They capture the natural beauty of the surroundings without detracting from it.... More

There is truly no other place like Maasai Mara and this last trip was incredible. We stayed at the Elangata Olerai tent camp! This "tent" camp was not what I had imagined. It is new and has all the amenities that you find in a hotel yet, it is a tent! The beds are extremely comfortable, the environment is purely... More

Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most truly beautiful places on earth. However, this is not the place for tourists looking for a western experience-you can find that elsewhere. If what you're after is an authentic African safari then look no further than the Masai Mara camp. The bumpy journey getting there further enhanced our African experience, as... More

Our group wanted to experience a real, authentic safari and camp, not Animal Kingdom and Mickey's luxury disney den. The entire experience, including the "bumpy" ride was incredible. We off-roaded for probably a few hours, however, it only added to our experience! Of course there were no paved roads near the National Park, it's a NATIONAL park, not an animal... More
