Olarro Camp


... is located in the Mara Northeast sector of the Maasai Mara in Southwest Kenya.

Situated high in the hills to the east of the Mara, this high specification lodge is built in stone and thatch. Very comfortable public areas lead out to an extensive pool and seven large guest bungalows, plus two further rooms in a separate annexe.

Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari in the local area, as well as village visits. Day trips down into the main reserve are less attractive from this location because of the traffic volumes in the Sekenani area.

Olarro Camp was apparently built by a wealthy American who only visited once, during the migration season, before deciding to go ahead. He failed to realise quite how little wildlife there was at other times of the year.

The camp has undergone a couple of changes of ownership since then and the wildlife situation has been improving as conservancies have been established.

But for now this place remains more of a quiet mountain retreat than a hardcore wildlife viewing camp.
