We stayed at Olare over the Easter weekend. Where do I start? From the time we landed to our flight back, our stay was amazing!

You could actually be anywhere and the staff would make you feel on top of the World, never missing a beat. The arrival into the Olare Mara is spectacular and goes down in my books as one of the most endearing experiences, depictive of the essence of the Masaai people. The lodge is simple, cosy and resonates comfortable luxury. There... More

We traveled as a couple and stayed in the honeymoon suite. It is very secluded and has an amazing balcony overseeing a river which is a home to hippos. There is also a plunge pool in the balcony. The service and food was exceptional. Kudos to Fairman (camp manager) and the team for making our stay so memorable.
