Your family wants a really special African adventure
How about becoming a “warrior for a week”? We’ll arrange for you to stay for a week, splitting your time between Saruni Mara Lodge deep in the Masai Mara, and Saruni Samburu on a vast private reserve by the big Samburu hills. Between thrilling game drives, special Maasai guides will teach your children the art of becoming a Maasai warrior as part of your family safari. They’ll learn spear throwing, animal tracking, the medicinal use of plants, how to make and shoot a bow and arrow and much more. They’ll go on fascinating bushwalks, sing songs and visit a remote tribal village. These lodges are small, expertly run and extremely comfortable. Combine it with a few days beach holiday on balmy Zanzibar.
If you want an exclusive, private camping experience but still desire the facilities a larger camp has to offer, the new Private Camp at Olonana has the perfect solution. Set apart in a private location in the Masai Mara, the camp will be set up just for you surrounded by some of the most varied wildlife in Africa. Yet you still have the option to take a short drive to the main camp for a dip in the pool if you wish. The itinerary and each day's adventures are designed exclusively for you and your family whilst you stay in classic style safari tents with luxury furnishings. The camp leaves no footprint on the environment, being moved each time a party leaves, as if it were never there.
In addition to big game viewing in the Masai Mara Reserve, visitors to Olonana are offered a rare glimpse of the day-to-day lives of the Maasai people in the adjacent Maasai village or 'engang'. Olonana is the only lodge in the Masai Mara to offer such a close cultural experience with the Maasai.
