Review of Sanctuary Olonana Tented Camp

Adrienne & Nicholas

5 stars for this AMAZING location. This was one of the nicest accommodations we have ever stayed at and it was just what we needed for our last safari camp stop. Everyone here was so nice and I just loved all the little thoughtful touches - the drawn bath after a long and rainy day out in the bush, the wonderful song/dance and cake celebrating the guests who were there…
