“Ol Tome Luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

Located on the slope of a hill over looking the mara ol Tome resort is setting the benchmark for what hotels in the Mara should be like. It is simple yet exquisite. After a long drive from Kenya's capital Nairobi Ol Tome Resort ptovided us with a world class welcome with a Maasai moran serving us cold orange juice and cold towels.

The rooms ideals for couples and families provided us with all the amenities an exhausted traveller needs. Hot water, warm beds in the night and power sockets for our long and exciting safari next day.

The tents built on concrete platforms fitted with luxury toilets, mosquito nets, electricity and wooden balcony give you the perfect sensation of what a safari enthusiast needs.

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!
