Olare was an amazing, unforgettable experience. The staff are amazing (they remember your name, go out of their way for you and are most hospitable), the property is incredible (so comfortable in your "tent" if you can even call it that - it's better than many of the hotels I have stayed at elsewhere!) and the food is delicious (try the masala tea - we were addicted!!!). AND there's wifi!!! Yes, in the middle of the Mara!
We loved everything about our stay, right down to our amazing guide, Anthony. He was persistent and we saw everything we expected and more. We also had a blast doing so. Our last day we had a "bush breakfast" - yes, breakfast on the Mara. Seriously. It is truly a lifetime experience that everyone MUST do.
The property is small, which adds to the charm. There is no mass-tourism here. Everything has a personal touch. There is an option to visit a Masai village (which we did, at 30 USD per person - it was quite an experience but beware when trying to purchase items - very overpriced).
We are waiting to come back very very very soon. I highly recommend the Olare - you just can't go wrong.
