Out of the several conservancies which now line the boundary of the main game reserve is the Olare Orok one probably one of the most interesting. I stayed at the Olare Mara Kempinski and had an excellent visiting experience. Game drives with the camp's 4x4's with superb guides and the walks across the conservancy made it a highlight in my...

You won't be disappointed. The conservancy has much less traffic than the main Maasai Mara reserve, so viewings are often not shared at all. Plentiful cheetah and lion if you like big cats. A good guide will also find you leopard. Elephants graze naturally and without any sign of stress and seem to be untroubled by the vehicles. Giraffe, buffalo,... More

We stayed in the Olare Mara Kempinski for 4 nights with my boyfriend. The conservancy has a relative small territory but on the other hand a lot of "resident"animals so after the migration you will have all the chance to spot all kinds of animals life the big 5, all the predators, elephants, even rhinos! When we stayed here almost... More

We stayed in this conservancy and the BIG advantage is that there is less tourist traffic and it is private. SO, you can off-road in the private conservancy which is a HUGE advantage to seeing the wildlife. AND, there are much much less tourist in the private conservancy so much easier for wildlife viewing and much less congested. Would also... More

It is not easy to organize a conservancy of more hat 33000 acres in total. Yet, it very clear it has worked. Different owners of land coming together and having this one huge game park. Keep up the conservation and you will definitely get many visitors. It was tough to navigate since there are no signages, but at one point... More
