Ol Mesera tented camp

Ol Mesera is a small cozy camp with only big tents on magnificent spots, where we offer you personal service and attention. The exquisite birds and mammals and the exceptional beauty of the surrounding bush, are an escape from civilization’s noise.
At the unique location of Ol Mesera you will have the feeling that there is not another human being for miles around. Which isn’t entirely true as from time to time Maasai herds pass by with their cows, goats and sheep.

The other ‘neighbours’ are an enormous variety of birds, we can say in all sincerity that we live in a Bird’s Paradise.

Larger game come to visit our place too, like impalas, giraffes, zebras, kudus, hyenas, dikdiks and occasionally a herd of elephants.

There are also the smaller animals like vervet monkeys, squirrels and mongoose and yes, we’ve even met leopards, though they can hardly be spotted by daylight.

There are six big tents under Acacia trees and giant Euphorbia cacti. They are built on the edge of an escarpment and all overlook the Selela Valley, towards the evergreen Ngorongoro Highlands.

The tents are well separated for privacy and have large verandas where you can sit in the shade and enjoy the view, until a magnificent sundown wishes you ‘good night’ or ‘usiku mwema’ in Swahili.

Ol Mesera is a true oasis in the middle of the savannah. We try to maintain a homy atmosphere to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The dining is the central place to watch the birds, monkeys, read a book while enjoying a complimentary cup of tea
