O(for outstanding)lonana Tented Camp, located on the Mara River, is a "small luxurious camp with stunning river views". The river was so high and rushing that it upset the Hippos and babies, who loudly protested! We watched and heard them all night. I think it was my favorite place to stay on the safari. The food and detail of everything was perfect! The staff was wonderful. Our deck had comfy couches to relax, drink our wake-up coffee, read or just relax and watch the hippos!
