Spent a couple of nights at this place . Was fantastic . Food , accommodation , hot water . Yes not something you'd expect staying in the jungles of the Masai Basra. Faheem the manager was v kind and helpful and catered for our every need. they even gave us a free room so we could stay in comfort . I'd definitely recommend this place over any other resort . Perfect couldn't ask for anything else . Has

A fantastic stay while on Safari in Masai Mara. The lodgings, a combination of tents with first-rate hotel-like amenities, provided for a truly authentic experience. Moreover, the staff, service, food and activities cumulatively made it a thoroughly enjoyable stay for the entire family. Definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for something "outside-the-box," more familial, comfortable, natural, and different from the typical hotel-like residence!

I was truthfully afraid of staying in the middle of the jungle but the unique experience and atmosphere of the oltome resort was absolutely fantastic! The luxury tents and dining experience is definitely one I would recommend and without doubt I would stay there again! All the staff were friendly and welcoming making every night a special moment to remember from camp fires to story telling it was an absolute fantastic experience

After some of the places we stayed in Kenya, walking into Ol Tome was like walking back into civilization. Although not as schwanky as some of the camps in the park, Ol Tome Mara Magic has luxurious tents, hot showers, great food, and wonderful staff! Staying in a tent nestled in the jungle minutes away from the park, hearing wild animals at night and sitting by the campfire listening to Maasai folk tales was truly surreal.
The staff also helped us with a safari car and guide for the day, and can arrange other travel as well (like cars to and from Nairobi).
This was a really great place to stay, and one of the best parts of our trip!

Me and three friends recently stayed there while on Safari in Masai Mara. We were also the only ones there. The lodge is outside the park - but only a 5 minute drive away. We stayed in two tents - two twin beds in each. The tents were very nice and large with a big bathroom - two sinks and a shower area that had hot water after you let it run for a while. Each tent had a deck in front with chairs to sit and look around on. The area was gated which kept all the animals except the monkeys out. We did hear them, and other animals at night - which I thought was fun. The staff were very friendly, cleaned the room every day, and brought coffee or tea to your tent during the morning. They also built us a bonfire one of the nights, and one of the staff who belonged to the Masai Tribe told us Masai stories/legends which were very interesting. The food was good - and served buffet style for dinner, and eggs and fruit to order for breakfast.

All in all it was a great place to stay.
