"A truly wonderful experience I brought my mum on her first African experience and we chose Sanctuary Olonana for the first 3 nights of our stay. What a fabulous choice this was. From the moment we arrived till the moment we left, we enjoyed every single minute."
"WOW!!! Spectacular lodge right on the Mara River with Hippos outside making their happy barking sounds. The outdoor areas are incredible with breakfast, lunch and dinner overlooking the river. Rooms are comfortable. Number 13 is very nice."
