Sanctuary Olonana



Sanctuary Olonana is a small and exclusive luxury tented camp that was built along strong sustainable lines in the heart of Masai Mara with open interiors and airy spaces. Its unique location along the Mara river offers remarkable opportunities for safari adventures.  The game concentration here is high, including a resident hippo population, and the annual wildebeest migration happens almost at the camps doorstep.  It has 14 beautifully decorated luxury suites with floor-to-ceiling glass doors which open to reveal magnificent Mara River views. A highlight is the exquisite two bedroom Geoffery Kent suite which is the by-word in exclusivity. The camp features a mini spa for therapies, an organic garden where the food is grown and prepared by the camps resident chefs, a small pool and a library for those who want to relax. Dining is in the camp with options for Bush meals and sundowners by an open fireplace.  The main dining room and deck command unrivalled views over a dramatic stretch of the river.


Olonana is accessible by a 45 minute flight from Wilson airport in Nairobi as well as from Samburu which land at the Kitchwa Tembo Airstrip, a 15 minute drive from the camp. Alternatively, it is a 6 hour drive from Nairobi.

Olonana has 14 luxury tents, 2 of which are honeymoon suites with mudding and stone walls, with soothing organic tones and a variety of textures adding warmth and character. The soothing interiors of the main lodge are an extension of the surrounding wilderness. Ornamentation includes hand-crafted Maasai spears on the walls and patterned prints inspired by these carved wooden weapons once used for lion-hunting ensure an authentic African spirit abounds. The glass doors open out from the lounge to the terrace. Here, faded indigo rugs and elegant Edison-bulb pendant lights gently illuminate the decking without competing with the natural ambiance and the inviting new boma firepit is encircled by deckchairs, with each seat promising grandstand river views. Dine on the deck of the main lodge and overlook the river’s resident hippos. Relax with a good book in the library, cool off in the pool or for an extra special treat, experience traditional African remedies and spa treatments in the min
