We had the pleasure to stay at Oloshaiki Camp in Sept. 2011. We had a large group from North Carolina visiting Eldoret doing medical work at one of the referral hospitals and decided to take them to the Masai Mara for the weekend. Oloshaiki Camp was recommended and it did not disappoint. The staff handled the large group very well. They bent over backwards to accommodate everyone including finding ways to have personal medical equipment work throughout the night. The rooms are very large and the bathrooms are done in stone and also are huge. The food was very good, although not a huge selection. The camp is on the Talek River and although not technically in the park, is just a bridge walk over the river away. We would recommend this camp to anyone.

Stayed at this camp with a group of 18 for 2 nights, and all of us agreed that we were very happy with the accomodations and food. The "tents" are permanent wood-framed structures with canvas walls, and a large bathroom-shower-dressing area with hard walls in the back of each tent. Beautiful setting, with a large outdoor patio for dining or relaxing. Electricity goes to battery power after 8pm, so don't plan on charging your electronics overnight. And heed the staff's warnings about not leaving your door open or items outside, as monkeys are very destructive if they get in your tent! This place is comfortable enough for a vacation but rustic enough that you feel like you're in remote Africa! The only advice I would give to bird-lovers is to hire your own guide who knows birds as well as other wildlife. The staff and guides we used did not even know what birds were nesting in a sand bank adjacent to the lodge. One other caveat: the road to the Maasai Mara is only 50km, but takes 3 tortuous hours to drive over stones, ruts, and bumps. There is an airstrip if you can afford to fly in; otherwise, just be prepared to get bounced around.

Room Tip: All of the rooms we used (our group took up 8 out of 12 rooms) were comparable.

I have been coming to Oloshaiki every year since they opened, bringing friends along, and we always love the experience----I’ll be back again with a group next month! This small camp blends beautifully into the surrounding environment along the Talek river, where the friendly staff are ever-present to make sure the stay is a sweet escape into the beauty of the area. Spacious tents with comfy big beds and large bathrooms, accented with natural stone and wood, cozy fireside bar area, evening campfires, dining indoors and outside, with great access to the Maasai Mara (and amazing Maasai guides to take you there), all make Oloshaiki a perfect choice for an authentic, natural, yet luxurious Africa adventure.

Room Tip: The tent at the far end has a big private terrace

Our stay at this camp was among the most memorable experiences we've had in the Mara. The accommodation was comfortable and spacious and the food was second to none. The camp is situated right next to the Talek River, is quiet and and has a great atmosphere. The staff were incredibly friendly and the service quick and responsive.

The game drives were conducted by Maasai who know the area incredibly well and ensured us plenty of fantastic photography opportunities, we saw all the animals we were hoping to see.

Over-all one of the best experience we've had visiting the Mara, hope to be back very soon.

please avoid this camp and its manager...certainly its CHEF actually I dont know if you can call a person who serves tomato soup as a sauce and who's imagination making a salade starts and also stops by using always the 3 basic ingriedients (salade, tomato, cucumber)and who's interpretation of a dressing is vinegar + salt and pepper A CHEF ...no way this guys would not even pass the exams to work in a MCDonald.
If you want to go on a diet its the place 2 be for sure.
SORRY FOR THE INCONVINIANCE seems to be the basic phrase ( and also the only one) the manager on duty can bring out.
Tents are ok if you want to sleep on a brick matras .
Actually the ONLY thing great about the camp was " the cold ....wait for it ...... TUSKER BEER"
Game drive were speldid and with a pro driver at the wheel .
