A luxury lodge in the heart of Kenya's wildlife-rich Masai Mara
Olonana is situated on the banks of the Mara River, in the heart of Kenya’s Big Game country. This unique setting offers a world of remarkable opportunities for safari adventurers. In addition to big game viewing in the Masai Mara Reserve, visitors are offered a rare glimpse of the day-to-day lives of the Maasai people in the adjacent Maasai village or ’engang’.
No other lodge in the Mara offers such a close cultural experience with the Maasai. Olonana features 12 spacious permanent suites and three family suites, each tastefully appointed with two comfortable queen-size beds, ensuite bathrooms with showers, and large, riverview verandahs.
Enjoy a quiet evening drink, cosily seated on your veranda, watching the hippo frolicking just before heading out for their nightly grazing. The chefs will delight you with exquisite cuisine, which can be served al fresco perched on the Siria escarpment overlooking the Mara plains or as a picnic deep in the bush. Or you can sink into the comfortable sitting area with some books from the camp’s library lounge, and then enjoy a delicious dinner in the dining room overlooking the private section of the Mara River.
You are entirely at your own pace at Olonana – nothing is pre-scheduled. Meals, game drives and all other activities operate according to the guests’ wishes and the opportunities presented by the changing patterns of animal activity. Olonana’s quiet elegance is enhanced by highly personalized service, the management team customizing every detail so you can create your own African memories.
