Man meeting face to face with beast on safari surrounded by luxury amenities is a rare environment and forms the beginning of this once-in-a-lifetime experience during a stay at the Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara.
The tents, are so much more than the name implies; what is being referred to as a tent, are suites with a 4-poster bed, hardwood floors, en suite bathroom with shower and tub facing the outdoors, and a deck.
There are no fences. Hippos, monkeys, and cheetahs roam free on the grounds. The giraffe we found on the path to the room is indicative of how well this camp has managed to create luxury accommodations within a 35,000-acre conservancy. Each contains authentic African décor and is an elegant place to rest after a busy day on safari, especially if you treat yourself to an in-room massage. Plus, there is wi-fi so you can remain connected to the modern world and send loved ones your stunning pictures.

At the restaurant on the property three meals a day are served; they pride themselves on serving the freshest ingredients, including from their own herb and vegetable garden. While dining, catch the colorful sunset on the terrace. There is also a pool on the grounds with a pool side bar and night-time bon fires. You don’t have to choose luxury or viewing the richness of nature in Kenya, you can have both at the Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara. by Richard Crawford, Editor at Large www.richardcrawfordluxury.com
