Olonana Tented Camp is an award-winning tented camp on a private stretch of the Mara River, at the foot of the impressive Siria Escarpment close to where the famous last scene from "Out of Africa" was filmed.

 

Olonana Tented Camp Mara is located close to the border with Tanzania, the game concentration is high - and during the annual wildebeest migration, the action happens right on the camp's doorstep.

 

There are several daily scheduled flights to and from the Masai Mara. In Nairobi scheduled flights depart from Wilson Airport (approximately 45 minutes). Flights to Olonana Tented Camp land at the Kichwa Tembo Airstrip and the drive takes approximately 15 minutes (more if game viewing on the way) to get to the camp.

 

If traveling by road, the drive to the Masai Mara goes through the Rift Valley and takes approximately six hours from Nairobi. Olonana Tented Camp is a small luxury camp with 14 spacious tents. Each tent has floor to ceiling mosquito netting, en-suite bathrooms with hot showers, flush lavatories, solar lighting and large, river view verandas.

 

The fourteen canvas tents at Sanctuary Olonana are extremely comfortable and spacious. All have parquet floors, four-poster beds and private verandas overlooking the river.

 

The main dining room and veranda commands a dramatic stretch of the Mara River providing the perfect setting for breakfast, afternoon tea and after dinner star gazing. There is a swimming pool, a mini-spa and a small gift shop. Solar power supplies 240v electricity and there is a back-up generator.

 

Olonana Camp is located in the Masai Mara Game Reserve - fabulous for seeing big cats, their prey and all the Big Five. The Mara is also the stage for the greatest show on Earth - the wildebeest migration.

 

From around July to October grunting herds of wildebeest and zebra cover the plains, often crossing the river between Tanzania and Kenya, attended by crocodile, lion and cheetah.

Olonana Tented Camp Safari Activities

Olonana Tented Camp Game Drives

At Sanctuary Olonana game viewing starts from the camp. A pod of hippo's lives permanently in the river just below Olonana and many other species come to drink there.

 

Sanctuary's experienced guides take you to all the hidden spots and our customized open safari vehicles offer all-round views, allowing for excellent photography opportunities.

 

The Mara's rich eco-system includes acacia studded savannah, riparian forest and woodland which attract more than 300 bird species and a stunning variety of animal life all year round.

 

Cultural visit to Masai Village

Visitors to the village get an insight into the vibrant and still traditional way of life of the Masai Learn about the medicinal plants that grow here, the importance of cattle and the stages of life through which all Masai pass, from young boy or girl to respected elder.

 

Accompanied by an experienced Masai guide you are invited to visit the village which is built along traditional lines; complete with cattle enclosure, outer palisade and mud and cow dung huts.

 

Meet the elders, their wives and families and learn about the social structure of the homestead, the role of women in their society and many more aspects of their daily life. Interaction and discussion is encouraged, so whether the ladies are building a hut, the warriors are dancing or making fire with stones and sticks, guests are free to join in.

 

Olonana Tented Camp - Nature Walk

Walk with our naturalist and learn about plants, trees and insects and their use in the daily lives of the Masai tribe. Visit Olonana’s wetland, which cleanses wastewater naturally before returning it to the environment.

 

There is an opportunity to plant a tree, leaving a positive mark in Africa. A nature walk will guide you into a complete sense of connection and appreciation for even the smallest things in nature.

 

Our naturalist shares his intimate knowledge of the surrounding environment and how many of the trees and plants are used for medicinal purposes.

 

Watch the hippos, learn to identify the birds from their song, listen for and see small animals as they rustle through the trees, stop and learn about insects and even the fascinating system ants have, to build and maintain their ant-hills. Your guide will also point out animal signs which are everywhere, but not that easily noticed.

 

Olonana Tented Camp Sundowners

As the afternoon game drive comes to an end, drive to a specially chosen vantage point overlooking the Mara plains. Drinks are served as you take in the beauty of the rapid sunset coloring the acacia dotted plains and transforming the world in a matter of minutes.

 

Enjoy the warmth of the fire and discuss the day's adventures as waiters serve canapés and a selection of drinks, with the spectacular setting sun in the horizon.

 

Olonana Tented Camp Bush Breakfasts, Picnics and Dinners

You may have decided with your guide to take a picnic breakfast or lunch with you but equally lovely in the evening is to enjoy a bush dinner. A private and secluded clearing is prepared for an elegant dinner in the middle of the African bush.

 

As the sun swiftly sinks, the setting is illuminated by a magnificent log fire and at full moon the set glows with almost luminescent silver light. The table setting is as sophisticated and elegant as found in the finest restaurants with dainty wild flower arrangements that grace starched white table linen.

 

Candles flicker in the darkness, throwing golden lights on the table cloth as smiling waiters serve a delicious dinner. After dinner, retire to the warmth of the campfire where brandies and liqueurs are served as guests relax and absorb the peace and beauty of an African night.

 

Olonana Tented Camp Visit to a School

More and more popular are the visits organized by our guides to a variety of local schools during school term. These visits are free but we would recommend a donation to the school of anything upward of $15 per person.

 

 
Olonana Tented Camp

 

Olonana Tented Camp Mini-Spa

Olonana Tented Camp Hot Air Balloon Safari

Your balloon is inflated against the first rays of sunrise and once aloft floats gently over the plains and the plethora of game. After around one hour the balloon lands and nearby breakfast is already being prepared.

 

The smells of bacon, sausages and eggs drift on the breeze as you begin breakfast with platefuls of exotic Kenyan fruits and homemade pastries and, of course, glasses of bubbly to toast your flight in a tradition initiated by the Montgolfier brothers.

 

Flying Excursion to Lake Victoria

When in the Masai Mara, you may fly by light aircraft to Lake Victoria and enjoy a full English breakfast on arrival at the islands of either Mfangano or Rusinga. Try fishing for the legendary giant Nile perch, explore the myriad of tiny islands or stop at a traditional fishing village and see how the villagers live from day to day.

 

Lake Victoria is a spectacular sight; it is Africa's largest lake and the world's second widest freshwater lake. Birdlife is abundant and includes the spectacular fish eagles which can be seen perching high in the treetops or dramatically swooping across the lake as they capture fish in their fiery talons.

 

An experienced and knowledgeable fisherman captains each boat as you head out into the lake in search of the legendary giant Nile perch found in these waters -Nile perch weighing over 150 lb are regularly caught. Stop at a traditional fishing village before returning to the airstrip for your flight back to the Mara.

 

Flying excursion in a Vintage Bi-plane

A flight of a lifetime in a bi-plane of the golden era, with all the mod cons, performance and safety requirements of a modern aircraft. This open cock-pit aircraft can carry 2 passengers side-by-side whilst the pilot fly’s from the rear. The hour long flight is a dream ride in the Finch-Hatton tradition.

 

These popular bi-planes were originally manufactured in the 1920’s and 30’s by Weaver Aircraft Company hence the rather odd name Waco. The new Jacobs engine has been given J.A.R approval, and passes the stringent European noise abatement laws.

 

Waco have a beautiful leather interior, the best music intercom system and a 3-way camera system that will enable passengers to take this once-in-a-life-time flying experience home.
