On a private stretch of the Mara river, the location of this iconic camp is hard to top.
Sanctuary Olonana is located in one of the most wildlife-rich areas of the Masai Mara (and that is saying something!) – more often than not, the wildlife comes to you.
Sanctuary Olonana is perched on a river bank on the border of the Mara Triangle; an excellent base from which to see the annual Great Migration of wildebeest at the right time of year. Outside of the migration period, the resident game is abundant and you’ll be treated to a hug variety of wildlife and birdlife.
There is a Kid’s Club on offer, fishing to be had nearby, and some excellent birdwatching without needing to move from your private deck.
The state-of-the-art game viewing vehicles are kitted out with your every need, and we would thoroughly recommend a full-day game drive to really make the most of your time in the Mara.
As a spot in which to take a break from the pace of safari, the riverside here is perfect, as is the most excellent spa. This is a very long-standing property and the experienced team will cater for your every need.
