“Great semi luxury tent experience in Masai Maara”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

When u want to experience a tent, you would first be reluctant to try the same coz u are not sure about the cleanliness, the food, the water....I was suggested by a few colleagues to try out the 5 star experience of Stanley Maara but ofcourse that comes with a price; so after a let of coaxing from our travel arranger, we booked ourselves at the Ol Moran tented camps. Ofocurse, I took a lot of help from the reviews posted on trip advisor before I decided to check this out.

After a very difficult road journey from Nairobi to Masai (thanks to the poor infrasatructure) , we were greeted on arrival with a refreshing Orange juice and warm towels to wipe our tired faces. The food was simple buffet but yet tasty. The rooms were very neat and clean, putting our fears to rest.

The place is just quite close to the Maara entrance; the staff friendly and helpful. Though they told us the lights would be off from 10pm - 6am, we slept quite peacefully after we came back tired from our game drive. They ensured all blinds were pulled down, the musquito repellent was put on..... Nice experience without compromising your comfort.

Room Tip: Prefer the tent rooms !!

I stayed at Ol-moran for 2 nights with my mom on a trip to visit the Masai Mara.

This place is just what you need:

It's right outside the gate to enter the game park.

It's eco-friendly because they only turn the electricity on in the mornings and evenings.

The food is nice, and the service is very friendly.

I booked the trip through Diani Jumbo Tours & Travels (www.dianijumbotours.com), and Felix set up a memorable visit with a Masai Mara tribe that lives right next to the Ol-moran camp, where we got to see inside their manyattas (huts), visit their school, and even dance with them. After all, Ol-moran means the Masai age group of adolescent boys.

Overall, the camp is just perfect for a trip to visit the Masai Mara and we got to see all the Big 5 except the leopard - something to look forward to next time!

After having visited a few other tented camps in Kenya, this was a nice experience. A simple buffet with delicious food, friendly staff, well-maintained rooms (tents if you wish). The beautiful Masai Mara park is a few minutes drive away. Only the road to the camp could be better.

At first we didn't know what to expect cause it was our first time to stay in a tented camp, but when we got there we were amazed first we were welcomed with cold juice, the service was excellent with friendly staff, the rooms where neat tidy, the tents are surrounded with beautiful flowers, they have the best chef especially his grilled chicken. Its pocket friendly and they offer the best, we had a memorable experience and would love to go back again and i would recommend olmoran to anyone visiting the maasai mara.

I did a month in Kenya and Tanzania, mostly at luxury resort. This was the only tented camp we stayed at but it was excellent. Food was great, host were very nice and the Masi Mara park was definitely a highlight of the trip.
