“Such a great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

This hotel is built and run by local Maasais. Living in there is a great experience chatting with the Maasais by the camp fire. The chef's most kind. One of my companions doesn't eat chicken or lamb and when the chef got to know about it, he cooked special steak meal at once for my friend. The rooms are big and the beds are huge! Great sunset view on Masai Mara too. Clean and Classy

A group of 8 stayed at the camp 2 nights and everyone enjoyed their time there. The staff was extremely welcoming took time to talk with us and show us pictures. Some of the staff including guards were Maasai men and always made conversation with us about their culture and lifestyle. Our Maasai guide, Jackson was incredible, led us to the middle of a stalking leopard hunting an antelope. Captured the whole wait, attack and aftermath on video right before our van! Needless to say, that night at dinner, we were the most popular group in the clubhouse, attracting both guests and staff who wanted a glimpse of the footage :) A+ atmosphere, service and accommodations. The camp is beautifully landscaped and lit pathways help guide you at night...not to mention the Maasai guards who will be waiting close by if you begin walking at night :) very nice. Even turn down your bed and place a warmer inside it! Would go back in a heartbeat!

My visit in january 2012 to Camp Oloshaiki was a dream come true. The tents are very nice and specious and the bathroom was even bigger than mine at home...
Very nice food and kind service.
The drivers/guides of this camp are recommended as the best.
In even one game drive we were able to take very nice pictures of Lions, Leopard, Elephants, Buffalo's, Rhino, Hippo's, Topi and several other species. Whaaaw!!!!!
I'd like to come again!

We stayed at this camp for two nights in mid-December. The staffs were super nice and we felt very welcomed. The food was quite good with a nice selection of African meals and European meal. The tents are well set-up with loads of spaces and nice bathroom. The generator is bit noisy but you quickly forget about it. My only recommendation would to avoid lighting too many lamps at night since you will be inundated by mosquitoes and other bugs. Location is great since the camp is not that far from a main fate.

we went to this camp in december this is our 4th visit and we have stayed in other camps on the mara but we still keep going back to this one on arrival you are greeted with a cold towel and a drink it was just like going back home everyone remembered us and it was so good to see all the staff again the staff make you feel so welcome when we arrived to our tent number 10 they had wrote on the bed welcome back and there was fresh flowers and wine waiting for us and also a bottle of tusker for my husband
the meals are great there and so well presented to you nothing is to much trouble for the staff
there had been a lot of rain on the mara before we arrived and the talek river was the highest we had seen it also the grass was high but that did not stop us from seeing the big 5, 2nd time in a row last year when we were there we saw the big 5 we had bernard as our guide and ester as our driver what a team we had our dinner in the bush and also our breakfast we were sorry to leave the camp but we will be back again next year (to see you all again) i would recommend this camp to anyone the reason we go back year after year is because it is a small camp and you are made to feel at home and nothing is to much trouble SEE YOU SOON ann

Room Tip: they are all good locations for the tents right on the Talek River
