Olare Kempinski Tented Camp, which is in the conservation area bordering the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, can be a lesson to Tanzanian entrepreneurs who are wanting to add value to the tourism, travel and aviation industries.

To reach the area, one must take a 45-minutes flight from Nairobi to Maasai Mara Game Reserve, followed by a 40-minute drive that will finally see you in the Camp.

The entire trip is a complete adventure, as one gets to see the big five (elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos and buffaloes) as well as the small five. The latter include common animals with scenic lifestyles in the jungle including: elephant shrew (a small insect that resembles an elephant), an ant-lion (an insect species that is known for the fiercely predatory habits of their larvae, which has a tendency of digging pits to trap passing ants or other prey), buffalo weaver (a bird which looks like a buffalo), leopard tortoise (a tortoise that resembles a leopard) and a rhinoceros beetle (a subfamily of the scarab beetle family insects which resembles a Rhino.

With 12 modern tents at the campsite, the area is a powerful magnet for attracting international visitors and influential persons to Kenya. While there, tourists get the impression that the area combines leisure and treasure, and is the ideal cultural tourism exercise. According to the camp manager, Mr Fairma Muhingi, the area receives 300 foreign tourists in a month and a total of 120,000 other visitors annually.

Journalists from Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania were among a team of guests who took part in the familiarisation trip to some of Kenya’s tourist sites (including Olare Kempinski Tented Camp). The event, organised by Tanzania’s tourism board the Kenya Tourism Board (KTB), was aimed at promoting the tourism industry in the region.
