Tucked away in a forest along a private stretch of the Mara River, Olonana is a luxurious and intimate lodge perfectly positioned adjacent to the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.
During the Wildebeest Migration between July and October, you will enjoy easy access to the greatest spectacle on Earth as in excess of a million animals encounter treacherous river crossings and numerous predators on their endless journey to new grazing. Outside the Migration season, a host of resident animals remain, and you are able to enjoy Big 5 sightings. Game drives and safari walks get you close to nature, Maasai cultural visits enhance the experience, and hot-air balloon rides give you a bird’s eye view of this incredible landscape.
Built and operated along strong ecological lines, Olonana delivers a first-class experience without compromising on comfort or luxury. In addition to family-friendly accommodation, it also has romantic and secluded honeymoon suites, as a well as a mini spa to help you unwind even more.
