Me and my husband went for our honeymoon in East Africa as i have mentioned before. We stayed at Olonana Sanctuary for 3 nights! Olonana is amazing place for honeymooners! Super relaxing place in front of the Mara river, and the fact the they have a great relationship with the Maasai is great too.
The SPA was great too, in front of the river super relaxing and the quality in my opinion better than NYC. Since Olonana is relative small you feel at home right away and the rooms are so cute and in front of the Mara River.
The team ran by Mr. Maurice is amazing (special kudos to Philip, Isaac, Cristine and of course Maurice.) and me and my husband loved what Maurice told us when we arrived: 'our job is to make sure you are smiling'. We certainly did smile during our stay and we plan to go back to Olonana in the future.

Located close to the border with Tanzania, the game concentration is high - and during the annual wildebeest migration, the action happens right on the camp's doorstep. ... more less
