From the 2nd to the 5th of august I had the pleasure of staying at Elangata Olerai Camp in Masai Mara with my wife and some friends.
I have already stayed at the camp 2 times before travelling on my own, and I have been very pleased about it. When I came back to Denmark in Febuary after my second stay, I told my friends and family about my great experiences at the camp – The friendly and nice reception from the staff with a little refreshment, the big tents with a firm surface which all had separate bathroom with both cold and hot water in the shower and separate toilet and big beds with good quality mattresses. All tents had their own porch and every day the tents are cleaned and the beds made.
The tents, which all are different, are placed so there are good room between them. The big restaurant tent serves excellent food. The camp also has a bar which is located above of the reception and has a spectacular view over the Savannah.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The camp has also guards, who are local Masais, who takes care of the guests safety from the wild life of the Savannah. Even though you can hear a lot of different sounds from the Savannah at night from elephants, zebras and the roars of a lion in the distance, it is easy to feel completely safe on the camps property. It is definitely a great place to stay, when on safari on the Masai Mara.
When I told my wife, who of course have hear it all before after my last 2 visits, and 4 of our friends they were so excited, that they wanted to get that experience too – both the safari and stay at Elangata Olerai Camp.
We contacted “Animal World Safaris ltd.” (www.animalworldsafariske.com) who organized the entire trip, and they gave us a fantastic experience. Every morning and evening we were picked up at Elangata Olerai Camp by a personal driver, who made a game drive to Masai Mara Nationalpark and we were returned to the camp afterwards. During the 3 days of safari we had seen quite a lot of animals and special places. Both big and small animals of the Savannah, the big cats and tens of thousand wildebeests which during our visit migrated from the south to Masai Mara crossing the Mara river. We also saw the lions hunt and kill 2 wildebeests, which was amazing to watch.
Between the morning and evening game drives we had time to relax at Elangata Olerai Camp and my friends had time to visit a local Masai village nearby the Elangata Olerai Camp. My friends were very satisfied with our trip and the time on the Savannah, and they had an experience of a life time. For me it was yet another great experience and stay on Masai Mara and Elangata Olerai Camp.
A great experience that I highly can recommend.
