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. On arrival we were welcomed with a drink by Maureen, The Manager, who was very helpful throughout our 2 night stay. Our tent was... More

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). We had visited during Sept'2015, and knowing the requirement of my wife,... More

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

Great little place, comfortable tents and sufficient hot water at the designated hours. The food is average but this is understandable considering the price. We did two nights and will surely be back. It would be better to have the schedule of activities in the rooms so as to know when power goes, hot water hours etc

During visit to Mara Masai, We stayed at this place. The best thing that food is absolutely no problem. The tent quality, hot water, and other facilities are really v good looking to the local resources. Evenings are truly great, when you have drinks available at very reasonable rates and food of your liking.

This was a pleasant and relatively clean place located very close to the mara. Our superior tent was just that, a tent, but it did come with an ensuite bathroom which was greatly appreciated after our dusty game drives. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, the gardens really pretty, but the food was a bit average. Except for the... More
