Day 1

On arrival at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you will be met by a Sanctuary representative who will transfer you to Wilson Airport for your connecting flight to the Masai Mara. On arrival relax and freshen up in your tent before lunch is served. The main dining room and veranda commands a dramatic stretch of the Mara River providing the perfect setting for breakfast, afternoon tea and after dinner star gazing. In the afternoon there is time to relax before enjoying one of the many activities offered at Olonana. Take a game viewing drive to experience the phenomenal wildlife or visit the adjacent Maasai village to learn about the local Maasai culture and get a feel for the Maasai heritage. As the afternoon activity comes to an end, drive to a specially chosen vantage point overlooking the Mara plains.

Day 2

This morning after breakfast at the camp venture out led by our expert guides to explore the Mara. The Mara is a fabulous place for seeing big cats and all of the big five, a variety of plains game and over 300 bird species. The plains offer a rich variety of food for the dominant predators: lion; leopard; hyena and cheetah. On one day you could walk with our naturalist and learn about plants, trees, insects and even how to approach animals on foot, as your guide shows you how to spot animal signs which are everywhere but not that easily noticed. Return to camp for lunch and then spend the afternoon at leisure. Relax by the pool or revitalise at our mini-spa which offers a range of treatments from facials to body massages. Mid-afternoon high tea will be served before your next activity.

Day 3

During your stay at Olonana there are a variety of activities that can be booked on request. One possibility is a balloon safari. Float gently over the plains with a bird's eye view of the game below as the sun rises slowly over the horizon. After around one hour the balloon lands and nearby a full breakfast is served in the middle of the bush with glasses of bubbly to toast your flight! On your last evening drive out into the bush where a private and secluded clearing has been prepared for an elegant dinner in the middle of the wilderness. The table setting is as sophisticated and elegant as found in the finest restaurants. Candles flicker in the darkness, throwing golden lights on the table cloth as smiling waiters serve a delicious dinner. After dinner retire to the warmth of the campfire where brandies and liqueurs are served as guests relax and absorb the peace and beauty of an African night.
