Located in the remote eastern plains of the world-famous Serengeti, Olmara Camp offers an luxury safari experience away from the crowds.
Formerly known as Ehlane Plains Camp, accommodations at Olmara consist of eight tented suites including one honeymoon suite. The sturdy and cool canvas tents feature a large bedroom with a desk and chair, a storage chest, and wardrobe. The comfortable beds have soft cotton sheets and warm duvets. Accessed through a separate door, each tent includes an en suite bathroom with ceramic sinks, a vanity mirror, a bucket shower, and a toilet. The tents are decorated in neutral tones to blend into the natural environment. A private patio area includes a table and chair for relaxing outside and taking in stunning landscape of the Serengeti.
The camp is located in the Soit le Motonyi region in the more rugged, eastern section of the Serengeti and farther away from the more heavily trafficked areas. The camp is appropriately named “Olmara” which means cheetah in the Maa language. The region abounds with prides of lions and roaming cheetahs, while large packs of hyena and leopards confidently striding through the savanna. The acacia woodlands border grasslands where elephants, giraffes, zebras, and warthogs come to graze.
