Reviewed November 30, 2011

The experience i got out of staying in a tent was incredible. The atmosphere was so calm. The service that my family and I received was also out standing. The staff are very friendly and also approachable, they took into consideration of everything that we needed or required to enjoy our stay. The food was very tasteful and delicious. The staff has also thought about what the guest would enjoy in the time where they are not allowed in the game park, and it was wonderful to learn so much about the Masai's. The quality of the rooms was very luxurious for tents, they had everything that every traveler needs. If I was to do this trip all over again I would not change anything about it. I would recommend this place to anyone. A great experience that I would never forget.

This is one of the lower priced "tented" camp safaris that we found. The camp is very small, so you will have lots of peace and quiet. The tents are very nice and the grounds are well kept. Electricity/hot water only for a few hours a day, so make sure you pay attention to the schedule and get your showers in and camera batteries charged. Not a huge deal though because you're spending so much time out in the reserve. When we were there, it was only us and 2 other people who shared our safari van with us. A little weird to essentially have the whole place to ourselves, but certainly relaxing. The staff were quite nice and very attentive.Food was good. The only negative - loud dogs and other animals in the nearby village kept us up for a while each night.

this resort, completely situated into the savannah, offer a luxury service well managed by masaai personnel. The breakfast is complete and very well presented. During the night there is no electricity but it gives more atmosphere remembering that you are into the wild. The night beast concert is unique! Go and try!

The Oltome Mara Magic Resort is a delightful place to stay. Our tent was huge, by far the largest tent during our safari. The rooms have power outlets and come equipped with a desk, kettle, hairdryer, bedside tables and a clothes rack which was very useful. The furnishings all appeared new, although the bed sheets were not.

The hot water is good but the generator is only operational at set times so shower in accordance with this. The bathroom even comes with complimentary bath thongs which is really nice touch. The tents are set amongst incredibly beautiful and well maintained gardens that help separate the tents so you don't feel too close to your neighbours.

The staff were incredibly nice and went to extra lengths to make our stay enjoyable. They put handpicked flowers from the garden in our bathroom and brought a selection of jewellery to our tent for us to buy from. They offer additional activities and the Masai walk was memorable.

One drawback was the food which on the first day was dismal but improved thereafter (the pasta dish was great) and all our vegetarian needs were well catered for. Oltome Mara was the only accommodation to have a flat screen TV and DVD player in the lounge area. Overall we had a great time and were well tended to during our stay.

One last thing, do not feed the monkeys while enjoying the view from the balcony because the little buggers will merely return the favour by ransacking your room while you are out. Yes, they know how to operate zips.
