We LOVED our time at Olowaru. Everyone was extremely accommodating, attentive, and friendly. They were happy to help me maintain a gluten free diet. The food was fantastic and plentiful. Definitely recommend going here. It's remote, quiet, and beautiful.

This was my first visit to Kenya. It was by far one of the best travel adventures I've been on.
