My family spent 3 nights at this lovely place set in the Masai bushland. The experience was amazing as we enjoyed the lush gardens. The place was very clean and the staff were super amazing. I am a vegan so it was very nice to have freshly made food. We highly recommend it.

We were among Osero’s first guests for their reopening after Covid closures. This small yet well appointed lodge is very pleasant and easy to stay at. The staff could not be faulted for their friendliness, service and efficiency. Food was tasty, homely and generously portioned, and we were always offered extra portions if hungry. Our room was spacious and well appointed, toiletries were top notch. The grounds are lovely, especially around the pool. We did have some trouble with hot water, it just needs to be pumped for a while before use. Also, network coverage is poor so avoid trying to pay with credit card whilst at the property. Otherwise, we had a lovely stay.

My husband and I spent 2 fabulous nights at Osero Lodge and all staff could not have been more welcoming or more helpful. From our first 4-course lunch under an acacia tree on the lawn - watched by a cheeky monkey on the boundary, to hot water bottles in our beds in the evenings and the wonderful Masai dancers, we were superbly looked after at all times. It was just magical to be so far out in the wilderness and so close to all the wild animals one only usually sees in zoos or on TV. A visit to the local Masai village was also a highlight, along with seeing the BIG FIVE on one day, thanks to our incredible guide and driver, Julius, organised for us by Soul of Tanzania tours. We couldn't fault them on anything. An experience not to be missed.

We stayed 3 nights at the Osero Lodge for our 4 day Masai Mara safari. Our tour company gave us this lodge as an option among 15-20 choices. I researched each one of them and chose Osero based on reviews, location and amenities. We are a family of 4 (2 adults and two girls, 7-9 years old). We stayed in February which is mid-season and there were only 3 groups at the resort which made it feel quiet and exclusive. We arrived on a Monday afternoon from Nairobi and we were shocked by its beauty and the quality and character of the people working there. We were greeted with a delicious lunch under a tree in the garden before our afternoon safari. Chance was our server and he made our stay very enjoyable and pleasant. The tents are fantastic: very big, very clean, nice beds with mosquito nets, wood floors and big bathrooms with real toilets, tiled showers with abundant warm water, dual sinks and big mirrors. We used the available bathrobes and slippers and the safe in the room. Everyday the room (tent) was cleaned and beds were made. The pool was a lot of fun, a bit cold but what can you expect at 1800m elevation. The resort grounds were beautifully manicured, surrounded by wildlife (kept out by an electric fence). The road to the resort is a little rough but we didn't have any difficulty in our tour guide's jeep, it felt like any other safari road. We saw so many animals in and out of the resort every day including a troop of 19 giraffes on our last day! The restaurant was amazing, every meal was incredible! Many reviewers comment on the soup, true, its amazing, so was every other meal! Breakfast was delicious, the packed lunches were delicious, and the 4 course dinners were delicious!!! One evening we had a dance from the resident Masai boys, that was very fun as they invited everyone up to jump with them. The people working at the lodge are simply amazing! When booking, I mentioned to our tour operator that our youngest daughter would be turning 8 years old on the day we were leaving, she passed that information along to the lodge staff so after our last breakfast the Masai people at the lodge along with the chef and the whole staff brought out a cake to sing her birthday in traditional Masai fashion. They sang and danced for 30 minutes, we jumped together and they dressed her up like a local Masai girl. It was an absolutely magical experience that we will never forget. We will not be able to top this birthday for a long time. Osero Lodge was amazing. We travel extensively and I don't leave many reviews, but based on our experience at Osero I feel I have to share what a gem of a place this is. Kenya is a stunning country, the people are kind and welcoming and Osero embodies this perfectly. It's very out of the way, but we will go back to Osero.

I spent 2 nights at Osero lodge, ending my 5 day solo tour though Heritage of African Jungles. All of my lodgings were wonderful, but Osero was epic! The staff are intellectual, curious, and went above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable. They certainly made an impression on me. When considering the location of this camp, deep in the heart of the Masai, the fact that you have electricity, let alone internet is beyond comprehension. I loved knowing I could walk to the reception tent/dining hall and have great internet service. Equally wonderful was knowing I would be unplugged to enjoy the scenery back in my tent. I had no issue with electricity in my tent. The first night I wasn't able to get hot water at the shower, but the soaking tub with the hand held sprayer to rinse was perfect. The tub was also great for doing laundry during my stay. The food was out of this world, preparation and presentation at Osero was as good, if not better than luxury restaurants in the US. When I ordered my dinner without several courses (because I had been eating so much on the trip), it was suggested I not miss out on the offerings so they gave me smaller portions (which were still pretty big). I believe I was the only guest on one of my nights, which made me feel like royalty at this special location. I connected with most of the staff and found them willing to help me with my Swahili! The fuzzy hot water bottle nestled in my bed both nights was the best thing ever! I woke up to a lion grunting and was really happy to have my Masai guard standing outside my tent. I have traveled extensively, and I'm not lying when I say I dream of the next time I can visit Osero Lodge. It has such a profound impact on me at the end of my 5 day safari.
