Overview

The Ol Kinyei Adventure Camp offers a superb quality wilderness and wildlife experience on a private conservancy. If you are willing to sacrifice some luxury comforts this offers seriously good value for money.

Nights are spent camping out in the bush in a private conservancy far, far from the crowds. It is important to understand this is camping at its simplest, most adventurous form. What marks this Camp out in particular is that it preserves all the good elements of a quality small safari camp (wilderness setting, wildlife, superb guiding, minimal tourist & vehicle density and safari ambience) and cuts out the arguably unnecessary luxuries to keep the cost down You’ll be sleeping in small modern dome tents and spending the night around the camp fire. Each tent has its own ensuite bathroom in located immediately behind the tent with flush toilet, wash basin and safari shower. You need to hire or bring your own sleeping bag and towel ($10 per person per day to hire) and sleep on comfortable mattresses on the tent floor. Pillows are provided.

Ol Kinyei has some of the finest wilderness that the Mara Serengeti eco system has to offer. This is pristine wilderness with open savannah plains, riverine forest, springs, streams and rivers, rolling hills and spectacular views across the Mara.

The beauty of camping on a private conservancy is that you can really connect with the landscape on bush walks with local Masai guides and night drives (perfect for seeing the big cats at their most active), both of which aren't possible in the main Masai Mara reserve. And at the end of a long day, you can enjoy the simplicity of life camping out in the bush, sitting around the camp fire at night, enjoying the stars, the peace and the very real sense of wilderness.

For Families: Children over 10 are welcomed (not suitable for under 10s).

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.

  • We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.

    Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.

    Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.

    Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!

    One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.

    Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

  • We had an amazing time thank you. The itinerary was great as we felt like we saw lots of different things and it kept it interesting for our daughter. She especially loved the gorge at Hells Gate.

    Unfortunately the Menengai Crater walk was a bit hard for her although that probably had something to do with how hot it was!

    We especially loved the Sunbird Lodge - it is such a beautiful place and all the staff were so incredibly welcoming and friendly.

    Our guide, Joseph, was exceptional too and we can’t speak highly enough of him.
