When we booked a safari to visit the maasai mara, we were told we would sleep in a tented camp. At first we were a bit skeptical being the first time to sleep in tent. However when we arrived at the olmoran tented all this changed. First, at the spacious lounge we were met by very friendly and welcoming staff with a glass of juice which was very refreshing after some 5 hrs of driving from Nairobi. When we were taken to the tents, it was unbelievable, what met us were neatly made wooden beds with white sheets, the bathrooms were clean and the showers had hot water. After freshening up we had a wonderful buffet lunch at the lounge. On our second day after our visit to the mara river, the camp manger showed us the new luxury tents that were almost ready for use. These tents are quite spacious and very cozy furnishing, we learned that while staying in these tents you can have room service at an extra cost. The tents we used had also recently been refurbished and they were pretty comfortable.
During our 2 nights stay we had delicious meals all the time and even though we were told we had a choice between the ready buffet and ordering for a meal, we choose to have the buffet as the choice in variety was sufficient for us. By the time we checked out on day 3 our ideas of sleeping in a tented camp had been completely changed! This is a place we would love to visit again and again.
