I had an important email to check, and the signal wasn't too strong, so he offered me his personal iPad to work on. Such a simple gesture, yet one that shows me that Oltome Mara Magic cares. The food was wonderful as well, and the chef would make us special dishes because we are vegetarian. Their ginger cookie dessert was delightful! At nights, they had story telling time where a Masaai would relate folklore to us, and help us learn more about the culture, and their legends. They told us what you don't find in travel books or 1000-page guides.
I definitely recommend Oltome to the Mara traveller, and wish them all the luck. Nzuri sana!
