We went for a 4 night ,5 day safari to Mara and stayed in this beautiful eco friendly camp.The camp is situated near the Olare orok river and less than a km from the OlKiambo airstrip. The staff were very friendly and catered to all out needs including the vegetarian food(they were flexible to learn more options in veg and we had given our feedback to the staff). Michelle was a wonderful host. The tent is tastefully furnished and considering it is an eco camp, it was luxurious.The only suggestion is that if they can replace the bucket shower to a normal shower option, it would be great.There is a photographic lounge where enough sockets are provided for charging. We loved the whole experience and would definitely like to go back. The camp is just in the wild bush and I highly recommend to those who just want to be just in the wilderness.Kids are welcome in this camp and I heard they are also soon opening a kids activity tent to keep them occupied.
