Sanctuary Olonana is an award-winning safari lodge located on a private stretch of the Mara River. The camp is in the heart of Kenya’s most famous game reserve, the Masai Mara. Constructed on a private stretch of the Mara River the camp has beautiful views of the river and surrounding bush.


Fourteen glass-sided suites at Sanctuary Olonana are 1400 square feet in size and with the enormous glass doors that fold open, views of the Mara River are fantastic. Three of the suites have an extra bedroom making them ideal for families. Huge king-sized beds, overhead fans and luxurious en-suite bathrooms. A daybed or “sala” on your private deck is a great place to relax between exciting game drives. The lower lounge area offers panoramic views of the surrounding bush.

The main dining area and lounge have a huge deck that has incredible views over this stretch of the river. For the hotter parts of the day there is a swimming pool as well as  a mini-spa offering relaxing treatments. Pamper yourself with anything from a  facial to body massage.

The Geoffrey Kent Suite allows travelers to immerse themselves in secluded ultra-luxury in this sophisticated free-flowing space. Two en-suite bedrooms, an additional family room, wraparound private deck and infinity pool. The GK suite also has a spacious lounge and dining area.
