OLTEPESI SUPPORTING NEIGHBORHOOD VILLAGES

This is second time during the Corona crisis the team of Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp brings food to our friends and neighborhood villages in Maasai Mara. Thanks to both returning and new guests of Oltepesi from Norway, Australia, Spain, and U.S. for supporting us so that we can do this. It's a great honor! We do plan to do this again, so anyone who likes to support the project please write to us at mail@oltepesi.com. Thank you.

Nice

lovely photo the leopard

We are looking forward to welcoming our guests back to Maasai Mara and Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp. Our camp is still closed, but we hope to open soon. If you plan to go on a safari in 2021 or 2022 it's a good idea to make a non-committal reservation now since we will be very busy when the pandemic is over. For information about our eco camp, Maasai village and guides, safari vehicles specially modified for low angle photography, and prices, you can contact us on mail@oltepesi.com. You can also visit www.oltepesi.com.

OLTEPESI SUPPORTING NEIGHBORHOOD VILLAGES

Due to the corona virus and the impact of this on more or less everything in daily life, many people in Kenya are suffering. The situation is difficult in our area too, but today people from our neighborhood villages could visit our camp and collect rice, white flour and cooking oil.

The support was very much appreciated. For us at Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp helping our neighbors and friends is a privilege and an honor.

We also like to say THANK YOU to guests and friends of Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp who generously has donated to this. Your support is greatly appreciated. We will try to repeat this later as well, so let us know anyone who like to join and help us. Any contribution, big and small, are most welcome. Just drop us a line to mail@oltepesi.com if you like to support.

Thanks to the most sincerely guests and our friends whom they had the privilege of supporting the community

WE ARE REALLY LOOKING FORWARD...

to welcoming our guests back to Kenya and Maasai Mara! Right now our camp is closed due to the pandemic. For your information at Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp we continue paying our permanent employees their fixed monthly salaries, since there is no such thing as unemployment insurance or other kind of support from the authorities.

Also we are supporting our neighborhood villages and the non-profit wildlife conservation organization "Cheetah Guardian". Please contact us if you like to help us. Any contribution, big and small, are most welcome. And thanks to all who already have contributed!

The images attached to this post show Maasai warriors and women dancing for our guests in the camp, a lion cub looking at his brother, and a leopard cub photographed in the morning light. If you like to experience the beauty and excitement of both African wildlife and Maasai culture, please contact us. We are now taking bookings for 2021 and 2022, and it's a good idea to make a non-committal reservation now since we will be very busy when the pandemic is over. You can contact us on mail@oltepesi.com and www.oltepesi.com.
