Olonana, Cottar's or Mara Explorer?

Jump to last reply

Can't decide which camp in Masai Mara to choose. We are going in Jan-Feb 2013 and would like to be in a camp that has excellent gameviewing yet some amount of luxury.
Olonana - not crazy about the "stone" structure look and it's fenced. how is the gameviewing nearby and how far is it to Mara reserve?
Cottar's - how's the gameviewing? It seems so far from the well-known (to me, at least) area of MM. Is it comparable to Governor's area or Olare Orok? Doesn't seem to be much on this camp here. Any reason it's not "popular" among the regulars?
Explorer's - too corporate?
any other camps we are missing? We were excited about Mara Plains as it seemed the perfect combo of lux, small and gameviewing, but they will be closed. We previously stayed at Little Governor's and enjoyed it but it seems they haven't quiet kept up with the times for the price they are charging? We do prefer smaller camps (10-ish tents is ideal).
Another question - Olonana seems to have a "low season' price for January, but none of the other camps in the area do. why is that? That makes it more attractivecompared to other camps.
for reference, our favorite camp in Kenya/Tanzania is Migration Camp. If we could get something like that in a great gameviewing area, that would be perfect!
