Location: Olonana is on the Mara River at the foot of the Siria Escarpment. It is in a private concession adjacent to the Masai Mara. The nearest airstrip (KTC) is a 10 minute drive from the camp. The flight from Nairobi takes 45 minutes.

Rooms: There are fourteen tents, all very spacious. They have en-suite bathrooms and private verandas with a day bed where you can enjoy views of the river and hippos in or by the water. They have wooden floors and king-size beds with mosquito nets and overhead fans and a lounge area. Three tents have an extra bedroom, perfect for families.

Activities: Game drives in the Masai Mara are the main activity, supplemented by nature walks, bush meals and sundowners. Cultural visits to Masai villages are popular with adults and children alike. Sunrise hot air balloon rides culminating in a champagne breakfast can be arranged.

Facilities: The dining room opens out onto a vast open deck, so you can enjoy river views as you eat. There is plenty of seating on the deck, for relaxing between meals, as well as a lounge with comfy chairs and sofas and a selection of reference books. The camp has a swimming pool, a small spa and a gift shop. The camp provides a free laundry service.

Dining: Meals are generally eaten at individual tables.

Children: Children of all ages are welcome. Those between 2 and 13 years are required to share a room with an adult and can take part in game drives at the discretion of the camp manager.

Health: This is a malarial area.

Communication: There is free wifi internet access in the suites.
