Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
Providing luxury and style, the world-renowned Olarro Lodge provides one of the easiest immersions in the Masai Mara wilderness. Fitting snugly along the Loita Hills, in a massive private conservancy, this is one of the most exclusive properties in Kenya. Expect lots of space and tranquility, along with privately-guided safari activities that unravel all the magic of the Mara.
Olarro has seven palatial cottages and two suites. There’s a stunning attention to detail and it’s very easy to escape the world when you stay here. But this definitely isn’t a camp; the stone cottages will suit visitors who want to combine the wilderness experience with the facilities of a five-star hotel. We love watching the wildebeest from the sundeck or swimming pool, and can’t get enough of spa treatments after an action-packed safari day.
Most activities take place in the private conservancy, which is one of least explored pieces of the Masai Mara. Cheetahs, elephants, leopards stalking wildebeest, lions chasing zebra...it’s all within easy reach. Best of all, you won’t see any other safari vehicles. Adventurous visitors have the option of spending the night at a mobile tented camp in the conservancy, then returning to the opulence of the lodge the next night.
Olarro Lodge is one of the priciest in the Masai Mara and you’re paying for the exclusivity. Few camps mix opulence with safari charm so seamlessly.
