This place is a very cool to be and very wild.The animals and other predators roams freely very close to the camp and they can even share meals with yoiu if you invite them.The animals are not hard to find from this camp although game drives is always luck to find during these expenditions.

As veterans of many Masai Mara holidays, we are very experienced in our expectations of camps in the Mara Triangle. Some are against any form of off-road driving, while others are not forthcoming regarding full days in the bush. We have experienced repetitive menus, peeling varnish and even un-coperative guides. Olare Mara Kempinski, based in the Olare Orok Conservancy, seemed... More

It was a once in a life experience!!! We arrived by plane and we were picked up by Rafael, who would be our guide for the game drives on the following days. The 4x4 is completely fined tuned and I have to say...you will be amazed to see it crossing the rivers or anything needed to get closer than you... More

We so much loved this experience! The resort was quiet, very peaceful and relaxing and felt so very personal and private due to only a few number of tents. The whole camp, tents and interior were absolutely stunning and gorgeous - here to name as well the wonderful experience of an additional outdoor shower. This place offers a high standard... More

This is the most luxurious camp in the Olare Orok Conservancy. From here you can enjoy viewing all the wildlife you can imagine, and also the Conservancy allows for evening game drives (which The Masai Mara can't offer).
