Olarro Lodge (Masai Mara)
Olarro Lodge is situated in western Kenya near the Masai
Mara National Reserve on a 10,000 acre private Conservancy
on the 150,000 acre Maji Moto Group Ranch, owned by the
local Maasai people.
The Conservancy sits along the corridor of the annual
Wildebeest Migration and plays a significant role in the
Greater Nguruman, Loita, Mara, and Serengeti ecosystems.
Olarro Lodge is a unique, artistically-styled retreat
built with undulating curves that mimic the rolling hillside
in which the lodge is set; blending it effortlessly into its
surrounds. The interior is a cool white, accented by earth
tone accessories and enhanced by modern décor chosen for its
quality and the integrity of its design. Olarro Lodge runs
on eco-friendly principles not only in design but in its use
of resources. It employs state-of-the-art wind and solar
Olarro Lodge, situated on the north side of the property,
has seven cottages (3 twin rooms and 4 double rooms). Six of
the cottages are co-joined through a common sitting area,
ideal for groups of friends or families.
For those guests seeking total privacy and exclusivity,
Little Olarro presently comprises of a private house located
a short distance from the main Olarro Lodge. It has a luxury
suite with a master bedroom, a smaller twin bedroom, lounge,
dining area and veranda, all offering stunning views of the
Loita plains. Little Olarro has its own entrance, private
kitchen and deck area.
The Northern Lounge overlooks the Loita plains and is
used by the seven Main Olarro cottages. The expansive decks
offer 180 degree views across a pristine corner of Africa.
There is also a sundeck, lounge area and bar, as well as an
'under-the-stars' open air fireplace. Meals are prepared
using the finest, fresh ingredients and are served either in
the Northern Lounge or at a poolside table under the stars.
The swimming pool is a series of small, inter-linked
pools, providing guests with privacy and the ideal place for
a cool dip to escape the heat of the African sun. There is
an adjoining Mini Spa that offers a full range of treatments
and services - an ideal way to relax at the end of the day.
The Upper Deck Lounge is the private lounge and dining
area exclusively for guests at Little Olarro. The two-storey
structure houses a fully-equipped kitchen and massage room
on the lower level. The upper level has a spacious lounge
with a fireplace and a dining area and sundeck, all
affording breathtaking views of the Loita plains.
One advantage of being on a private Conservancy is the
wide range of activities offered. These include mountain
biking with a private guide, bush walks, daily game drives
and specialized bird watching with our licensed guides.
Specially prepared picnics can be provided for breakfast
or lunch and drinks and gourmet appetizers for sundowners.
Unique to Olarro are night drives using infra red night
vision binoculars to spot nocturnal game in their natural
habitat with minimum disturbance to their behavior.
An optional experience and one of the highlights at
Olarro that requires pre bookings is a scenic helicopter
flight into the Masai Mara, taking off from Olarro Lodge's
private helicopter pad at dawn. After an exhilarating flight
into the Masai Mara, guests have the rare opportunity to
float over the million strong wildebeest and zebra migration
in a hot air balloon, followed by a sumptuous champagne
breakfast in a remote location.
