'Glamping' on Safari in Kenya at Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara

'Glamping' on Safari in Kenya at Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara
These tents are a far cry from the poles in the ground you might be picturing. They feature hardwood floors, private bathrooms, four poster beds, in room wi-fi and best of all, the entire camp sits on 80 acres.

After a safari adventure, enjoy dinner on the deck with wide, scenic views of the plains and colorful sunsets. Don't be surprised if you see monkeys, cheetahs or hippos roaming because it's a world without fences. I had the pleasure of seeing a giraffe within minutes of arrival. You can also take a refreshing dip in the pool, enjoy a cocktail at the bar, or relax in the open air by a bonfire. Your stay will be the perfect combination of boundless adventures, nature immersion and high-end comfort.

It would have been interesting to wear a heart rate monitor during my safari experience. There were moments so serene and beautiful I could take in the wind, sunset, animals, and exhale a calm, relaxed sigh. Then there was the night safari filled with the sounds of animals in the darkness when I was only a few feet from a lion pride and I was able to breathe, well, not a calm, relaxed sigh. It was exhilarating. These fluctuations encompass the adventure of the excursions offered through your stay at the Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara.

Guests are guided through the African savannah along a dirt road in an open-air Land Cruisers with no obstructed views. Inhabiting the area are animals like Antelope, Zebras, Warthogs, Elephants and a wide variety of the big cats. The animals are free to roam and in their natural environment. For extra adventure, there is also a night safari using infrared light to spot animals. Since the hotel is located on a conservancy vehicles are limited so guests enjoy the private, serene experience. No mini buses here.
