Journey with us through the greater Masai Mara savanna and feel the rhythm of Mother Earth. Not just as a passing sensation, but a deeper knowing that you are part of something incredible that can only be felt in Africa.  Our Maasai team see you arriving without the pulse of Africa in your heart, but they will not let you leave that way. Born with lions and elephants as their close neighbours, the Maasai will guide you to an understanding of Africa and its nature that will fill your soul.

Walk with our Maasai guides, track animals, go on game drives, visit a Maasai village, horse ride and bird watch. When you’ve relaxed into the slow pace of ‘Africa Time’ and have your animal-spotting eyes in focus, you can set off on the next part of your safari to our sister camps Entim Mara inside the Masai Mara National Reserve and The Cliff at Lake Nakuru.

Our ten safari suites make use of canvas frames, with interiors that express the beauty of traditional East African safari style. They are stylish and supremely comfortable, yet unpretentious, with a genuine sense of real Africa safari.  Lerai serves as a sanctuary for you to restore balance to a life that is often too busy. A good dose of Africa Time and African hospitality will soon have you feeling rebalanced and renewed.

Barely 15 miles north of Tanzania’s Serengeti National park and just west of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve, it’s an area teaming with African wildlife with migratory pathways for wildebeest, zebra, elephant and antelopes.

IN THE AREA

Lerai camp which is situated amidst the Olerai conservancy is one amongst Kenya’s pride as it sums up to a perfect tranquil get away for those who love to explore wildlife by indulging in the combination of comfort and luxury.  Lerai, bordering the Naboisho Conservancy, situated in the middle of an unscathed and virgin bush, is the only camp in the 5,000 acre private conservancy.

Olerai was not only set up as a sanctuary for wildlife, but to spearhead the Green Economy for improving local livelihoods, with green job opportunities arising from conservation initiatives. That has included empowering the Tuone Mbali Olerai Women’s Group (meaning Let’s Look Far), to generate income from eco-tourism.

Water is the lifeblood of Africa and its people, which is why Lerai Camp dug a deep borehole that gushes forth enough fresh water to be piped to the local community to supply them with clean drinking water. Lerai Camp in collaboration with its sister camp Entim is also in the process of completion four new classrooms for a local school of 400 pupils in the vicinity of the conservancy These are just some of the benefits of Lerai Camp’s policy of social responsibility in Olerai.
