Lerai Safari Camp is a small, yet grand, tented camp on its own in the 5000-acre Olerai Conservancy only 15 miles north of the Serengeti National Park and within the greater Masai Mara ecosystem. Its open plains sustain the highest number of giraffe and eland in the region and there is a host of exciting activities in addition to game drives and walking safaris that truly offer a multidimensional safari experience. The camp – a main dining, lounge & bar area – and the six tented suites are built in an acacia thicket along a stream to which passing wildlife is drawn.
The beauty of Olerai Conservancy is that it is a part of the greater Masai Mara ecosystem but enjoys total privacy and exclusivity in a very popular area on the East African safari circuit. The open plains are ideal for herds to move through and graze on, while predators like lion, cheetah, hyena, leopard, and wild dog have ample room to stalk and chase their prey, resulting in some good sightings of both carnivores and herbivores. The seasonal river in front of Lerai Safari Camp attracts elephant, wildebeest, zebra, Masai giraffe, a host of birds and the area’s big cats. It certainly opens the camp up to some excellent at-home game viewing. In terms of activities, there are plenty. Game drives and walking safaris, pre-dawn hot-air ballooning followed by champagne breakfast in the bush, horse riding for advanced riders, massage therapy, bird watching, star gazing, night drives, and cultural activities.
