My husband and I stayed just one night at Olduvai Camp, but it was wonderful. When planning our trip, we considered staying elsewhere as Olduvai is very dry in August. However, we're so glad we chose to include it. Just driving through that desolate land and imagining it as the home of early hominids was incredible. The camp itself is very well designed. The simple, but lovely, tents all have expansive views and the dining area and bar are just what you would think a safari camp should look like. The food was fine and service warm. However, the highlight was the sunset walk to the boulders with a personal Maasi guide. The conversations with the guide were illuminating and memorable. We appreciated the opportunity to talk to Maasi about their changing lifestyle without treating them like curiosities in a human zoo.
