No wifi or phone communication available. The quality of the food is mediocre. After one day I decided to leave and to go to another park and location.... More

This camp is just outside the border of the Masai Mara. That tricked us on our first drive, when we saw many herds of cows and Masai village in the area, which do not make a good background for wildlife photography. But after crossing the border of the NP, this was all gone and all was good. We did see... More

Imagine a bush camp in the middle of a forest, with gorgeous aviary, located on a peninsula surrounded by a harshly flowing river. This is the short description of Olumara camp. As you get to the camp, you will find that there's a bridge that navigates over to the camp itself. This bridge crosses over one of the mighty tributaries... More
