Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
Casting a dramatic view along the Mara River, Sanctuary Olonana offers a spectacular insight into Africa’s natural beauty. Perched in a private concession along the Masai Mara border, this is one of our favourite camps that blend luxury with nature.
You’ll always have a front-row view of the phenomenal Mara River at Sanctuary Olonana. All of the 14 tents have wonderful riverside verandas, as well as rustic safari-style décor and scenic drop-down windows to watch the resident hippos graze. Two of the tents are honeymoon suites, offering a desirably secluded spot for newlyweds to relax.
We quickly fell in love with the charming main areas. With walls and ceilings made from mud and clay, there is certainly a rural vibe in the lounge and dining areas, whilst the plush furnishings add a touch of contemporary style.
Sanctuary Olonana is all about the memorable experiences. From listening to Masai guide’s stories whilst tucking into a riverside BBQ, to relaxing in the Africology spa whilst listening to the water lap on the rocks, you’re guaranteed an amazing time here.
We love that the camp is ecologically friendly too. The thick and luscious surroundings were re-forested, and now every guest has the chance to plant their own tree to help carry on this incredible, animal abundant area.
This camp is well suited to children with three two bedroomed family tents, set away from the others. Children can take part in nature walks and treasure hunts and everyone will enjoy relaxing by the swimming pool after a full day on safari.
