We arrived at Olumara on January 11, 2013 after spending a few days at the Amboseli Game reserve.
It took us nearly 8 hours to get there!!! A 4x4 vehicle is a MUST have. To get to the lodge and certain areas of the Masai Mara, you need to drive through river banks and mud..... great way to get your heart to skip a beat when your vehicle gets stuck!!! Please ensure that your guide is knowledgable with the area because the signs to the hotel are nearly non-existent!
The lodge is spectactular!! The tented camps are so spacious, well furnished and completely comfortable. The food is delicous and we really enjoyed the amazing service from each staff member.
There are animals all over the place! One of our afternoon game drives turned into a night game drive and on our way back to the lodge, literally right across from the lodge and stream... we came across two leopards in front of our 4x4...... they ran into the trees. It was so exciting! Just knowing that there were so close to us made me a bit nervous, but the staff ensured us that the cats are the ones that are nervous of us!
Would definitely recommed this lodge whether it be for couples or families!!!!!
