Oltome Mara Magic was a real getaway in the jungle! Don't let the hours of dirt roads and avoiding herds of cattle and occasionally elephants deter you, this relaxed Lodge is well worth it. The lodge is small compared to the others we stayed at on our trip, with only 13 tents, but this means the service is personal in... More

Just a few minutes away from the main gate, very friendly staff and management. We were treated to delicious meals and also had the chance of getting a dish which was not on the menu and which the management gladly availed.

The staff at Oltome Mara Magic go our of their way to make your stay great. The service was truly excellent. The accommodations and board are fairly simple, but the quality well exceeds the modest price. The camp is very close to the park, so it's a perfect option for budget travelers.
