On the banks of the Mara River, in the heart of Kenya's big game country, lies an exceptional camp. Olonana has been built to intrude as little as possible on the Mara's delicate environment. Solar-powered electricity powers the camp and preservation of the eco-system is a priority. A nearby Masai village offers a rare glimpse into the lives of Masai people and their fascinating culture.
Twelve spacious permanent tents, each tastefully appointed with comfortable queen-size beds, ensuite shower rooms and large, riverview verandahs, provide the top-quality accommodation. Guests set the pace at Olonana - nothing is pre-scheduled. Meals, game drives and all other activities operate game drives and all other activities operate according to the guests' wishes and the opportunities afforded by the changing patterns of animal activity and other conditions.
The camp borders the Masai Mara Game Reserve, rich in wildlife. Hippos wallow in the Mara River. Elephant, buffalo cheetah, lion, hyena and giraffe are only some of the animals you may see. There is abundant birdlife. The quiet elegance of Olonana is enhanced by highly personalized service and close attention to every detail, so that you may enjoy a truly memorable African safari.
