Sanctuary Olonana is situated in the heart of the Masai Mara game reserve on a private stretch of the Mara River. This small and exclusive camp has earned a Gold Award from Ecotourism Kenya for its sustainable build quality. Game drives, bush dinners, cultural visits, balloon rides and scenic flights make for a wonderful African safari experience.
The Masai Mara is renowned for its abundance of wildlife and is the stage for the biggest animal migration on the planet, as well as being big cat country.
From July to October you can witness millions of wildebeest and zebra crossing the plains and Mara river, moving between Tanzania and Kenya. Elephant, cheetah, buffalo, lion and leopard are also frequent sightings.
Game drives start from the camp where a pod of hippos live directly below in the river. Experienced guides will take you in open top vehicles to hidden spots offering excellent photography opportunities. The rich eco-system includes riparian forest and acacia-studded savannah which attract over 300 bird species.
Cultural visits to the Maasai Village give you insight into the traditional way of life. Accompanied by an experienced guide you are invited to visit traditional villages, elders, families and learn more about the social structure and traditions of the people.
When you are not spotting game you may wish to relax at the spa, offering a range of treatments from body massages to facials, savoury scrubs and Africology foot and scalp massages.
