Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp is an eco safari camp located in Maasai Mara in Kenya, made for professional wildlife photographers and nature photo enthusiasts. We offer the very best guides in Maasai Mara, giving the clients the best opportunities for the best images, including a specially modified and unique vehicle for wildlife photography.
The camp is located in Oltepesi Village, a genuine Maasai village about five minutes drive from the border to Maasai Mara National Reserve. With this unique location, you will also experience the Maasai people’s traditional and famous culture. Accommodation is offered in spacious safari tents with ensuite bathroom including shower, washbasin and flush toilet. There are solar panel lights in the tents. There is a separate dining tent where our chef and camp staff will serve you safe and delicious food. In the dining tent, you can also charge camera batteries, phones and computers. Outside is a bonfire where you can relax with a cold drink in the evening before dinner.
To stay in a village like this instead of in an ordinary tourist lodge will give you a unique chance to get to know the proud Maasai people and their culture from the inside. Their hospitality is great. Upon arrival, the children come running welcoming you – Jambo! You can also experience BBQ in the true Maasai way, and if you like, you can spend a night in a traditional Maasai house. Finally, you can feel like home in the village and photograph and film as much as you like without asking permission first.
We welcome you to join us at Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp in Maasai Mara were we offer sustainable, ethical tourism that benefits both wildlife and local communities.
