We stayed for 2 nights from 2nd August 2013. We were on a safari van and the drive was a bit nerve cracking. Not sure if our driver took the right road, because we were along on dirt and gravel road for more than 3 hours. We did not see any other safari vehicles, though there were plenty coming to Masai on main road. I know the driver did not take the first entry road ( south ) . It was a scary drive especially on a van..with children we were praying that the van do not break down. No sign boards for Olumara is a drawback. Finally driving inside game park (entered from gate 4) , hotel were good enough to keep our lunch though were late. Tents were good and spacious & clean. Food were average especially after comparing with other camps we stayed. There's no electric supply at all. Generator works but will be off at 11 and comes back at 6. Pitch darkness inside tents are bit uneasy. they will switch on power earller should we need to leave early. Hot water were availbale in morning & evening. Definetly not a bad place to stay. Good thing wihile retunring, we found a local masai guy to show an alternate road, which was much better and took 1 hour less, though at cost of 1000 shillings. But we are not complaing. I understand game drive areas take less time from this property. BTW we witnessed the migration and also the mara river crossing.Had to wait patiently for 3 hours before the herds of Zebra, wildbest and deer decided to jump into river. Saw right in front of us, aligotor catching, unfortunate zebra and a deer.
