Our large rowdy group was looked after by Fairman, John and Chef David and the happy and smiling team. You will not regret choosing this camp. You may even run into a former PM of Kenya arriving in his helicopter! The rooms are spaced out, well appointed and large. Having a shower outside on the balcony was a lovely treat,...

What a fantastic stay! From the staff to the luxury tant and of course the safari, everything was great! Big thanks to Philipp who really rocks and deserve a PHD in Masai Mara region and in finding animals. We saw all of them and the experience received from the kempinski team was just amazing. Congrats and see you soon!

We had a wonderful time here. The rooms are gorgeous, the food was excellent, and the game drives were one of a kind. However, management will need to make quite a few small improvements if they are intending to keep things at a high standard. The patio furniture has definitely seen better times, a dead rodent by the pool wasn't...

This is a tented camp, which is the rule in the Mara, but it's made a determined effort to present luxury facilities and dining usually limited to lodges. The camp is located in a conservancy, which means that it's not open to the public and that the vehicle traffic at a sighting can be limited to prevent "critter jams". Since...

The Masai Mara is divided in several regions. The Olare Mara Kempinski is located in the North Conservancy Area, which is a small area in the whole Masai Mara. The advantage of this is that in a small area, there is a large concentration of species, and finding them is much more easier than in other places. In 2 days...
