“Honestly, words cannot express how splendid a stay at Oldarpoi can be – I absolutely fell in love. What Nelson Ole Reiya and his amazing wife Maggie have done to uplift and empower their community, preserving their culture as well as the biodiversity of a critical corridor to the Maasai Mara is nothing short of inspiring. The experience of staying with the lovely Maasai staff at beautiful Oldarpoi is amazing, I felt as if I was home with all of my beloved brothers. Every experience from our wonderful cabin, to the meals, grounds, game drives, nature walk and village visits were outstanding. Never have I felt more welcomed or more cared for. I think perhaps the best part is that supporting this camp and the related Nashulai Conservancy supports the local people and the local economy- which unfortunately has not been the case with the other camps and lodges along the Mara. Staying here makes a difference for the community. My family had the experience of a lifetime seeing the Mara and befriending the wonderful people who cared for us at Oldarpoi. I cried tears of sorrow when I had to say goodbye and I will most assuredly run back at my earliest opportunity. I could not recommend this place more.” – Shelly G., USA

Dining Area

An authentic, eco-friendly experience of the Maasai Mara…

  • Comfortable, beautifully clean, with local, handmade bed linens (100% natural fabrics).
  • Relaxing chairs, your own porch, and set among the trees for shade during the hot days.
  • Your own bathroom; with running hot water, shower and flush toilet
  • Power is supplied via a comprehensive solar system and there is a standby generator that supplies light and refrigeration for the dining areas. There is also a charging station for cellphones and digital cameras.
  • Vegetables are grown here on the Conservancy, in our organic garden. All food is cooked from scratch by our talented chefs.

How To Get Here…

We will provide transportation from Nairobi to our Camp (4.5 hours drive). Or, you can fly into Keekorok airstrip nearby and our driver will pick you up and bring you here.

International flights arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi. It is a 34 minute drive over to Wilson Airport (the regional airport that flies to the Maasai Mara). From Wilson, your plane will land 45 minutes later at Keekorok Airstrip. We will pick you up at Keekorok and half an hour later we will arrive at the Safari Camp.

Lastly, you can rent your own vehicle and drive here as we have free parking for our guests. The nearest town is Narok, via Sekenani Road.

What To Bring…

Bring a warm jacket for dawn game drives and also for nighttime bonfires, or after the sun sets. The Mara is like the desert and cools off quickly. Be sure to bring good walking shoes and of course light clothing, hats, sunscreen (if desired), toiletries, bug repellent, a basic first aid kit, and anything else you need to be comfortable.

We purchase AMREF Emergency Evacuation coverage for every guest in the event an emergency evacuation to the nearest hospital is needed. But you will need to cover the full cost of treatments at the hospital, so you may want to purchase health insurance for your trip.

*Note: The Maasai Mara is always cold at night (like the desert). Some guests request a hot water bottle to take to bed. Security provided by Maasai warriors.

“Our Safari was AH-MAZING!!!! What an experience!!! Our awesome tour guide, Joseph, ensured we ended up seeing all of the Big Five (he says it was our “good luck” but we also feel it was due to his in depth knowledge of the game reserve and ability in reading the animals and signs as to where to look). We did a “bush breakfast” (breakfast with hippos) which was definitely a highlight. And the journey from Nairobi to/from the Mara is a journey in itself – our driver had pre-scheduled stops at very clean bathrooms, a viewpoint and very clean, yummy spots for food which we appreciated 🙂

A hike up the hill behind the camp with two Masai warriors provided the most picturesque views, evening Tuskers (beer) around the bonfire with the staff (specifically the camp Manager, Festus) left us in pain due to so much laughter, and a ceremonial welcome and blessing at a nearby Masai village filled our hearts. So many more amazing moments.

We couldn’t help but hold back the tears when we left. We promise to be back one day! Thank you so much, Oldarpoi Crew, for your hospitality and all that you do to give back to the Masai Community and to protect the Mara xoxo” – Jessica H, Vancouver, Canada
