I stayed at the Aruba Mara camp after reading positive reviews on TripAdvisor; I wasn't disappointed. Questions prior to arrival were answered promptly, and travelling tips were helpful. The flight to Olkiombo airstrip was an adventure in itself. I was met on arrival at the airstrip by Tom, in his Masai finery. He was my safari driver too, very knowledgeable and considerate, a really lovely guy. My tent was lovely, big bed and cosy hot water bottle for the cooler evenings. From the verandah you could see warthogs, baboon, gazelle, mongoose etc across the river, I even saw a hippo too. The food was good, and the guys had no trouble catering for me even though I'm vegetarian. The full board deal with inclusive game drives is excellent value. My stay was great, I only wished I had stayed a little bit longer.
