This is a budget lodge in an area with a number of similar lodges. We were in a vehicle with people from other lodges in the area, so we saw 2 others. Ol-Moran was definitely better than the others we saw. The camp is set out nicely, the tents have everything you need and the bathrooms are clean at the... More

We had visited the Ol Moran tented camp earlier this month and I must say it was simply amazing. The tents were spacious, with double beds, neat sheets and pillows. The toilets were clean and kept tidy on our arrival with air fresheners and an insecticide (which I didn't have to use as there were no mosquitos or any kind... More

Excellent location as very close to Masai Mara national reserve. Tented camp with several services (even if very far from civilization): - Convenient tent for one, two or several people with all basic equipments; - Excellent service (very kind people); - Buffet restaurant (also for breakfast) & bar;

The staff was super friendly. The tents, nothing to write home about. Need better maintenance. Bathroom taps leaking. Hot water was unreliable, very frustrating especially with chilly mornings and evenings. The food at dinner is buffet style, not much to choose from, but not the worst food ever. I enjoyed their fish very much. The highlight, of course, is the... More

we visited Ol-moran as part of a safari organised by Hirola Safaris. probably not the most luxurious lodge in the Mara but very comfortable and far better than we had expected on a relatively budget safari.

Me and my wifey booked this place through an agency and were not disappointed after being there. Although all the camps in Masai Mara are same near the oloomotiya gate, except the premium ones, this one was quite a satisfactory compared to my other one ( reviewed separately).

This camp is quite basic. If you simply want a place to sleep and will be gone much of the day, this may be suitable. Our tent lacked chairs or a table and the floor was not especially clean. Our dinner was tasty but our breakfast was not good. Perhaps there were not enough clients to support better food. I... More
