The award-winning Olonana Camp boasts a romantic setting right on the banks of the Mara River at the heart of Kenya’s celebrated Maasai Mara National Park.

energy and water projects within the sanctuary. Its ceaseless efforts have been recognised with a Gold Award by Ecotourism Kenya.
At the heart of the wilderness, there are plenty of exciting excursions that put you in touch with the pristine nature and the native culture. Join a classic game drive, visit one of the local Maasai villages, sip a sundowner at the heart of the bush, followed by a delicious dinner or soar high above the exotic landscape aboard a hot-air balloon.
The golden 1920s have inspired the Olonana Camp’s interior design. Adorned with select Maasai style elements, the restaurant features a spacious veranda commanding a fantastic view out over the Mara River and its wild inhabitants including hippopotamus.
The camp’s main house accommodates a cosy lounge with a crackling fireplace. Pick up a good read at the library and settle down by the beautiful pool or recharge your batteries with a professional treatment at the Olonana’s spa, where traditional African healing lore is fused with modern science.
The camp’s setting is certainly unique: Just past your tent’s doorstep, the “Great Migration” converts the plains into a nature show par excellence, when two million wildebeests, zebras and antelopes make their way from the Serengeti to the Mara country in search of fresh grazing grounds.
Inevitably, the Great Migration route takes the vast herds across the Mara River, in many cases just at the point, where the Olonana Camp’s fourteen large and lovingly designed luxury tents nestle on the banks.
Impeccable service with a smile goes hand in hand with a high level of flexibility. You choose when you would like to go on any given activity – any mealtimes can be accommodated to fit your preferences. Uncompromising luxury at the heart of the African wilderness!
