We travel to Mara at least 2 - 3 times a year - having visited so many properties in the Mara we have finally found a place that you would not hesitate to call Home Away from Home!. The minute you are picked up from the Airport, you are over whelemed with the so much attention and care. I really... More

We stayed at the Olare Mara Kempinksi, Maasai Mara for two nights/three days and it was a wonderful bush experience. From the time we landed at the Mara, our driver - Bernard was very helpful and knowledgeable about the wildlife. He paid the Mara reserve fees immediately at the office near the airstrip and during the one hour drive to... More

From our first arrival when we were warmly greeted by a group of Masai men from the staff performing a ceremonial jumping dance, you know you are in for a wonderful experience. The staff of Olare Mara derives great pleasure from making your stay the best, within a day everyone knew and greeted me by name, always politely asking if... More

We spent two days at the Olare Mara Kempinski, and those days ended our trip to Kenya in the most perfect way. The camp is so beautiful and comfortable as are the tents. The service is perfect. The food is all absolutely delicious, especially the soups, which were unique. Fairman Muhingi expertly oversees a most friendly, kind and gracious staff.... More

Once of the best nature-experience I had.! I felt so close with the nature staying in this tented-camp. The tents are quite comfortable, clean and well decorated. Higher quality than what I was expected and definitely worth the money.

I have had the great pleasure of experiencing Olare Mara Kempinski tented camp in Kenya. The property is stunning in its natural beauty, the service is top notch, the sounds of wild animals outside the tents at night are fantastic, cuisine is never disappointing and safaris are unparalleled. It isn't easy to get here, but once you arrive, you feel... More

The magnitude of the savana is only overcomed by the kindness of Olare Staff. Tents are just beautifull and confortable. Game Drive Guides are experient and kind, allways explaining the life in the african savana. Maasai Village is a must visit. One word to classify my stay in Maasai Mara: Unforgettable!
