Olare Mara Kempinski

Masai Mara: 3 Nights

Guests at the Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara leave with memories that last a lifetime, thanks to stunning surroundings, abundant wildlife and understated luxury blended with an authentic African design. Tucked away in a grove on the banks of the Ntiakitiak River, this elegant tented camp is situated in the private Olare Motorogi Conservancy - which is home to many animals and covers over 35,000 acres of prime grassland, riverine forests and acacia woodlands. During the months of July through to September, you can also witness one of the world’s most stunning natural events - the annual migration of over one million wildebeest and their attendant wildlife cast.

Daily game drives can take place in the morning, afternoon, evening or at night, and guests can choose their preference - two game drives per day are included in your nightly rate. The custom-built safari vehicles seat just 6 people, and have radio-links with other vehicles for fast location of game.

Guests can also go on a guided nature walk, offering a refreshing alternative view of the wilderness.

A visit to this region would not be complete without a visit to a nearby Maasai community boma/village, which delivers a unique insight into this age-old culture. At the village, you can meet the people, visit a typical Maasai home, learn about their daily life, and visit the community's handicraft market. 

Raised so as to enjoy optimum views, each of the 12 safari tents has a generously arranged seating area, and a wrap-around deck verandah. While promising every luxury, each tent also deliveres the authentic feel of an under-canvas safari experience - complete with the nightly whooping of the hyenas and the distant roars of the resident pride of lions. The Honeymoon Suite also features a private plunge pool and an exterior dining area where lantern-lit dinners can be taken.

The main camp offers unforgettable dining experiences too. Eat at the poolside with its accompanying bar; the deck area with its views over the beautiful Mara Plains and all its wildlife; facing the camp lawns or alternatively under canvas. Watch the sun set in the conservancy as you enjoy your meal in any of these beautiful locations and just soak in the magnificent colours.

The elegant colonnaded terrace of The Plantation House leads into a spice inspired bar, and onto an antique elegant dining room where fabrics change daily from rust coloured silks to crisp white linens. An exotic cuisine is creatively presented reflecting the spices and flavours of the island.

The beachfront Sanctuary Spa offers a selection of world-class treatments designed to stimulate your senses and rejuvenate your soul.

Private thatched beach bandas shelter individual day beds and loungers to provide intimate beachfront privacy.

Important Travel Information For Kenya

Passport, Visa and Entry Requirements

CURRENT ENTRY RULES IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - Updated04 November 2020: The suspension of international flights to and from Kenya was lifted on 01 August 2020. The Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs have advised that:

Travellers arriving from the UK and other selected countries are not required to enter mandatory quarantine for 14 days, as long as they have a negative COVID-19 test (see below).  A list of approved countries can be viewed here: https://kcaa.or.ke/quarantine-exempted-states - this list may be updated at any time and without warning.

All travellers must carry evidence of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 96 hours of flying. The negative COVID-19 test must be a negative PCR test result. Travellers with a negative rapid test result will still need to enter mandatory or voluntary quarantine for 14 days, depending on the Kenyan authorities’ assessment on the traveller’s ability to quarantine.

All travellers will be screened on arrival into Kenya and anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19 will be required to quarantine in the place they are staying for the first 14 days of their stay and observe Government of Kenya protocols as directed. Passengers travelling in the 2 rows surrounding the person displaying symptoms will be traced and required to quarantine for 14 days.

All travellers arriving in Kenya must complete a COVID-19 Travellers Health Surveillance Form which can be downloaded here https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/kenya/entry-requirements. After submitting the form, travellers will receive a QR code which must be presented to port health officials for them to be allowed to proceed to arrival immigration. IT IS STRONGLY ADVISED TO TAKE A PRINT OUT OF THE COMPLETED FORM AND QR CODE WITH YOU AS WELL TO SHOW ON ARRIVAL. 

It is expected that these rules will be lifted and that the entry requirements will revert to normal as soon as the government of Kenya deems it safe to do so.

As of 01 January 2021, all foreign citizens wishing to travel to Kenya will need an eVisa, except citizens from countries who are exempt. A full list of the exempt countries can be found here: http://evisa.go.ke/eligibility.html.

You can only obtain a visa by applying online via the eVisa portal https://www.ecitizen.go.ke/evisa.html. Please ensure that you apply at least 3-4 weeks prior to your travel dates as approval for the eVisa takes up to 7 working days to process. Once the eVisa is issued, it is valid for 3 months. You must print a copy of your visa to present to the Immigration Officer at your point of entry.

The following eVisa types are available (please note there are no visa fees for children under the age of 16) - all costs subject to change:

Single Entry - Allows you to enter into Kenya once - current cost USD 51.

Transit - Allows a short stop over (up to 3 days/72 hours) in Kenya - current cost USD 21. This is ideal if you want to leave the secure area of the airport, for example for an overnight stay inbetween flights, or for a period not exceeding 72 hours. No visa is required for a direct transit (not leaving the secure area of the airport, aka staying ‘airside’, within the airport terminal) between 2 flights.

It is also possible to get an East Africa Tourist Visa which is valid for 90 days and allows holders to travel to and within Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda - current cost USD 100 per person (subject to change) - but you can only apply for this at the point of entry or via your local Embassy.

Your passport should also be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Kenya. Make sure you have 2 blank pages in your passport on arrival.

IMPORTANT:  Plastic bags are banned in Kenya. Arriving visitors are requested to avoid bring plastic bags into the country and being in possession of a plastic bag is an offence and offenders could be penalised.

Visitors are advised to avoid packing any plastic bags in their suitcases or in carry-on hand luggage before flying to Kenya. Items purchased at the airport before boarding the aircraft should be removed from plastic bags.

Travellers coming into Kenya with plastic duty-free shop bags will also be required to leave them at the airport. Please check hand luggage before disembarking and any plastic bags (including the transparent ziplock plastic bags that some airlines require passengers to use for keeping liquids, cosmetics, toiletries etc) should be left in the plane. This does not apply to people in transit.

All single use plastics, such as plastic water bottles and straws, are banned in all national parks, forests, beaches and conservation areas.

PLEASE NOTE: Countries can change their entry requirements at any time. Travel Butlers try to ensure that the information displayed here is correct, but the onus remains with the traveller to verify the information with the relevant High Commission or Embassy and ensure that they can comply with the applicable entry requirements.

Medical

You are advised to contact your doctor or clinic around 4-8 weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations and to get their professional medical advice regarding travel to Kenya.

To help prevent diarrhoea, avoid tap water – drink only bottled water and use bottled water for tooth brushing, and avoid ice made with tap water – and only eat fruit or vegetables that are cooked or can be peeled.

To help avoid heatstroke, drink plenty of bottled water/fluids, and keep out of the midday sun.

There is a risk of malaria in all areas of Kenya, except Nairobi and the highlands - check with your doctor about suitable antimalarial tablets. Dengue fever can also be transmitted via mosquito bites. Try to avoid mosquito bites wherever possible - wear loose long-sleeved clothing and trousers, and use a repellent on clothing and exposed skin.

Kenya falls into the yellow fever region in Africa. There is only a low potential for exposure to yellow fever in Nairobi, Mombasa, Lamu, Malindi and Shimba Hills National Park, but in the rest of the country there is a higher risk. It is therefore advisable for all travellers aged 9 months and older to obtain a yellow fever vaccination no less than 10 days prior to travel, but depending on the rest of your travel plans and country of origin, it is not compulsory:

Travellers from the UK who are only travelling directly to and from Kenya are not required to produce a vaccination certificate upon their return to the UK.

If you are arriving into Kenya from a country which has a risk of yellow fever transmission, you will be required to provide a certificate of your vaccination upon entry into Kenya. These countries include Angola, Argentina, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Peru, Rwanda, Uganda and Venezula but it is up to the traveller to check the full list via http://www.who.int/ith/2015-ith-annex1.pdf?ua=1

Certain countries including South Africa and Tanzania will deny entry if you are arriving from Kenya without the vaccination. Please ensure you check the full list via http://www.who.int/ith/2015-ith-annex1.pdf?ua=1 to see which countries impose this rule.

If your doctor advises that it is not safe for you to have the vaccination then you should obtain a medical waiver and travel with this instead.

Languages And Culture

English is the common commercial language, therefore it is spoken in the major towns and at all lodges and hotels. There are 52 tribes in Kenya, each with their own tribal language. The national language in Kenya is Swahili.

We would ask that all travellers are respectful of the local culture as follows:

Showing anger is not acceptable – Kenyan people pride themselves on their emotional control and expect the same in others. Try to remain patient, polite and friendly, even if the situation is very frustrating. Pointing with your finger at someone is considered very rude and is deemed to be an obscene gesture.

The coastal areas are predominantly Muslim so it is important to dress conservatively out of respect for the Muslim culture. On the beaches and within the confines of hotels, normal swimwear is acceptable but nudity/topless sunbathing is not. Away from beach resorts (especially in Mombasa, during the holy month of Ramadan or if you visit religious areas), women should avoid walking around in public areas displaying their legs and upper arms/shoulders - ‘short’ shorts, mini skirts, vests and tank tops may be frowned upon and viewed as a sign of disrespect. Long, loose hair is also seen as very provocative, so to avoid unwanted attention ladies may wish to tie their hair back or wear a headscarf.

Homosexuality is illegal in Kenya. Whilst everyone is of course entitled to their own sexual preferences and gender identity, we would advise all clients of the LGBT+ community to refrain from public displays of affection (including kissing and holding hands) and to be as discrete as possible about their relationship.

You should always ask permission before taking anyone’s photograph, or before photographing official buildings including Embassies.

Smoking in all public places (except in designated areas) is prohibited.

You must carry a form of ID with you at all times. A copy of your passport is normally acceptable, but recently some police officers have been insisting on the original document.

Important Travel Information For Tanzania

Passport, Visa and Entry Requirements

CURRENT ENTRY RULES IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - Updated 02 November 2020:  All passengers travelling from countries or travelling with airlines that require a negative COVID-19 test will be required to show this on arrival into Tanzania - the test should be within 72 hours of arrival. A Health form will also need to be completed on arrival.

Tanzania is implementing temperature scanning for all international passengers on arrival. If you show symptoms of COVID-19 on arrival, you may be required to take a test. If you are tested positive for COVID-19 on arrival, you may be required to self-isolate for 14 days.

It is expected that these rules will be lifted and that the entry requirements will revert to normal as soon as the government of Tanzania deems it safe to do so.

Normally, holders of the following passports require a visa to enter Tanzania when travelling as a tourist:

United Kingdom; United States of America*; Canada; Australia; New Zealand; Belgium; Netherlands; Italy; France; Germany; Spain; Ireland.

If you are a passport holder from another country, please contact your local Tanzania High Commission or Embassy for up-to-date visa requirements or check this website which lists countries whose nationals are NOT required to apply for a visa to enter Tanzania: http://immigration.go.tz/index.php/en/services/visa-information - so if your nationality is not listed, you will be required to obtain a visa.

Visas are issued online via the Tanzania Immigration website https://eservices.immigration.go.tz/visa/ or single entry visas can be obtained on arrival. You cannot get a multiple entry visa on arrival.

* American nationals applying online MUST select Multiple Entry Visa type.

Please note that getting a single entry visa on arrival can take a substantial amount of time and if possible, we would advise getting your visa online prior to travel IF YOU ARE ARRIVING INTO TANZANIA via the following international airports/border posts  – Kilimanjaro (JRO), Julius Nyerere/Dar es Salaam (DAR), Zanzibar (ZNZ), Namanga Border Post (road border between Tanzania and Kenya) and Tunduma (road border between Tanzania and Zambia). NOTE: Zanzibar Airport is referred to as Abeid Amani Karume International Airport on the online visa application.

Other entry ports/border posts are not currently equipped to validate online visas, so if you are entering Tanzania via any other border post (such as Tarime – between the Mara and Serengeti) then obtaining the visa ON ARRIVAL is still recommended.

Zanzibar is part of the United Republic of Tanzania, so the same single entry visa can be used upon arrival at Zanzibar.

Single entry visas obtained at port of entry currently cost USD 50 per person (but USD 100 per person for US nationals) - costs all subject to change - and the cost is payable in USD cash only. We recommend small denominations of dollars as officials are not in the position to give change. You must also bring 2 recent passport size photographs of yourself if getting the visa on arrival.

Online visa applications for minors under 18 years travelling alone or with only one parent/legal guardian must also be accompanied by a consent letter, jointly signed by both parents or legal guardians approving the travel.

Please note that if you are applying online, you need to allow 2-3 weeks to receive your visa.

Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Tanzania and have sufficient blank pages for entry/exit stamps (AT LEAST 4 consecutive pages).

IMPORTANT: Plastic bags are banned in Zanzibar and mainland Tanzania. Arriving visitors are requested to avoid bring plastic bags into the country - this includes in suitcases and carry-on hand luggage.

Please check hand luggage before disembarking and any plastic bags (including plastic duty-free shopping bags and the transparent plastic bags that some airlines require passengers to use for keeping liquids, cosmetics, etc) should be left in the plane.

Ziploc bags that are specifically used to carry toiletries will be permitted as they are expected to remain in the permanent possession of visitors and are not expected to be disposed in the country.

PLEASE NOTE: Countries can change their entry requirements at any time. Travel Butlers try to ensure that the information displayed here is correct, but the onus remains with the traveller to verify the information with the relevant High Commission or Embassy and ensure that they can comply with the applicable entry requirements.

Medical

You are advised to contact your doctor or clinic around 4-8 weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations and to get their professional medical advice regarding travel to Tanzania.

To help prevent diarrhoea, avoid tap water – drink only bottled water and use bottled water for tooth brushing, and avoid ice made with tap water – and only eat fruit or vegetables that are cooked or can be peeled. To help avoid heatstroke, drink plenty of bottled water/fluids, and keep out of the midday sun.

There is a risk of malaria in all areas of Tanzania and Zanzibar - check with your doctor about suitable antimalarial tablets. Dengue fever can also be transmitted via mosquito bites. Try to avoid mosquito bites wherever possible - wear loose long-sleeved clothing and trousers, and use a repellent on clothing and exposed skin.

Tsetse flies are found throughout most of Tanzania's Northern and Southern Parks, especially in wooded areas. There have been some cases of sleeping sickness occurring after a tsetse fly bite, although these are mainly amongst farmers/locals who have repeated exposure to bites. However, the fly can still deliver a painful bite, so it is advisable to take necessary precautions - don't wear dark colours, especially black and blue (including denim), wear long-sleeved clothing/trousers, and don't walk through bushes during the hottest part of the day.

Tanzania is not listed as a yellow fever endemic country, however, in accordance with International Health Regulations, Tanzania requires all travellers over one year of age to present a yellow fever vaccination certificate on arrival if:

They are arriving from a yellow fever risk country

They have been in transit longer than 12 hours at the airport of a yellow fever risk country

They have left the airport whilst on transit in a yellow fever risk country. These countries include Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda but it is up to the traveller to check the full list via this website http://www.who.int/ith/2015-ith-annex1.pdf?ua=1

PLEASE NOTE: Although Tanzania is not listed as a yellow fever endemic country, Zanzibar immigration officials MAY ask to see yellow fever vaccination certificates or exemption certificates upon arrival from the Tanzania mainland. We would therefore suggest that if your holiday includes both mainland Tanzania and Zanzibar, each traveller considers getting/travelling with a Yellow Fever certificate to avoid any complications upon arrival at Zanzibar.

Languages And Culture

Kiswahili is the official language of Tanzania. However, English, as the second official language, is the spoken commercial language and is widely understood.

We would ask that all travellers are respectful of the local culture as follows:

Loud and aggressive behaviour, drunkenness, foul language and disrespect, especially towards the older generation, is likely to cause offence.

As over a third of the population in Tanzania is Muslim, it is important to dress modestly out of respect for the Muslim culture. On the beaches and within the confines of hotels, normal swimwear is acceptable but nudity/topless sunbathing is not. Away from beach resorts, women should avoid walking around in public areas (especially in Stone Town) displaying their legs, midriff and shoulders - ‘short’ shorts, miniskirts, vests and tank tops may be frowned upon and viewed as a sign of disrespect.

Homosexuality is illegal on mainland Tanzania and on the island of Zanzibar. Many of the local communities are also very traditional and conservative, and whilst everyone is of course entitled to their own sexual preferences and gender identity, we would advise all clients (and this includes members of the LGBT+ community as well as members of the heterosexual community) to refrain from overtly public displays of affection which may cause offence to some local citizens and in some cases public displays of homosexuality such as kissing in public or holding hands could even lead to an arrest and imprisonment.

You should always ask permission before taking anyone’s photograph.
