We had a really great stay here. The safari drives in the morning and evening always had something new to see, and our guide Raphael was very knowledgeable about the animals and the Maasai Mara area. If you are debating between Maasai Mara park or the Olare Conservancy, I noticed more concentration of animals in Olare. Also, it's privately owned...

The lodge is placed in the lovely conservancy Olare Orok Conservancy adjacent to the Masai Mara. This has a few benefits as it means there are no park fees, it is less packed when it comes to the number of cars around when on safari and you can drive more freely. One does not have to stick to the roads...
