Sanctuary Olonana is located on a private stretch of the Mara River at the foot of the impressive Siria Escarpment.
Olonana is a small luxury camp with 14 spacious tents. Each tent has floor to ceiling mosquito netting, en suite bathrooms, solar lighting and large, river view verandas. The main dining room and veranda command a dramatic view 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.
The Masai Mara is a fabulous place for seeing big cats as well as all of the big five, a variety of plains game and over 300 bird species. From around July to October, the Mara is the stage for the greatest show on earth – the wildebeest migration - when grunting herds of wildebeest and zebra rush across the rivers between Tanzania and Kenya, attracting crocodile, lion and cheetah.
Sanctuary's experienced guides take guests to all the hidden spots and customised safari vehicles offer all-round views, allowing for excellent photography opportunities. As the afternoon game drive comes to an end, your guide will drive to a specially chosen vantage point overlooking the Mara plains where you can enjoy a drink of your choice. Guests can also walk with the camp's naturalist to learn about plants, trees and insects and their use in the daily lives of the Maasai tribe. For a special occasion, a private and secluded clearing can be prepared for an elegant dinner in the middle of the African bush (weather permitting).
