Editor’s note: Johnny, like Richard below, stayed at the Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara back in 2012.

Feel the excitement when pulling up in a cruiser to camp Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara. Masai warriors welcome guests with a traditional dance, and with it, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure begins. Located within a 35,000-acre conservancy and along the banks of the Ntiakitiak River, Olare Mara Kempinski is a great spot to call homebase after an incredible African safari.

Enjoy beautiful, authentic African décor in tents featuring hardwood floors, private ensuite bathrooms, lounge areas, decks, and 700 acres of private property. All this, draped with thick canopy roofing. It’s a modern hotel inside a tent! Stay in the honeymoon suite and maximize the outdoors. It has its own outdoor shower and plunge pool. With only 12 suites spread out across the property, each guest has privacy and can appreciate nature at its finest.

The day’s safari doesn’t necessarily end when the game drive is over, either. Dine on fresh cuisine from the on-site restaurant while watching the occasional hippo, cheetah or monkey travel by. There are no fences to keep with the spirit of respect for the land and wildlife. So when a giraffe crosses the walkway, it’s normal. Pause for a moment to take it all in with a cocktail poolside, recap the day sitting by an evening bonfire, or take advantage of the Wi-Fi and share the journey with loved ones at home. The expansive views, colorful sunsets and wildlife will leave you breathless. Start packing now!
