Lerai Safari Camp is the only permanent safari camp in the 5,000 acre Olerai Conservancy of the greater Masai Mara ecosystem.
Barely 15 miles north of Tanzania’s Serengeti National park and just west of the Masai Mara National Reserve, it’s an area teaming with African wildlife and migratory pathways for wildebeest, zebra, elephant and antelopes.
With your knowledgeable Masai guide, embark on game drives and explore every corner of this unscathed region in search for the continents greatest wild animals, from buffalo, giraffe, hyena and a colourful variety of birdlife. Lion and cheetah move in and out of the territory, but are often sighted since the Olerai plains are perfect hunting grounds.
Finish the day with a delicious sundowner while watching the sun set over the acacia-dotted savannah.
In the evenings, head out on a night drive in the conservancy and see all sorts of nocturnal wildlife from spring hares, porcupine, bush baby, and maybe even pangolin if you're lucky.
In addition, the camp offers massages, Masai cultural excursions, walking safaris, hot air balloon safaris and horse riding (additional cost).
The camp consists of 6 well appointed safari tents with large bathrooms and separate showers, each set out along the banks of a stream. The interiors express the beauty and style of a traditional East African safari.
The camp lounge and dining area overlook a seasonal river and the surrounding plains, and from here guests can enjoy access to iMac computers and complimentary Wi-Fi.
