This is a simple tented camp with beds, basic en suites and home cooking. It is great value for money especially with your own itinerary and private game drives and activities. (We saw many animals in the reserve including a rhino, cheetahs and daily sightings of lions.) What makes Oldarpoi something special is that it is an authentic experience which benefits the local Masai community. Make sure you do a walking safari with the Masai warriors and visit the local village. The young staff are knowledgeable and friendly and we felt that we got to know the real Kenya.
