If you are looking to experience a vacation with a difference and experience the beauty of the Maasai landscape surrounded by nature and wildlife, then Osero camp is the place to visit. This 25 bed personal tented camp lays in the heart of the Maasai community away from the noisy and stressful environments of the city making it the ideal place for recreation and relaxation. Osero Camp derives its name from the Maasai language translated to mean bush.
The Couple Hagström (Owners) together with New Life Mission have worked within the Mashuru area for over 20 years in various projects, with focus on children’s education, protecting young girls from early marriage and circumcision, rehabilitations of street boys, feeding program in the district, water shallow wells and drip irrigation and farming. New life mission is a non-governmental organization based in Ongata Rongai and Mashuru working to improve the living standards of people. Osero Camp became a product of the social work that the couple Hagström together with New Life Mission are active in. Osero Camp gives you the opportunity to stay and experience the work of New Life Mission, the nature and the Maasai community.
Experience the sunrise and sunset on our daily nature walks with our local guide and get in close contact with some of the wild animals and birds that cohabit with the people. The highlight of the trip has shown to be standing in the dried up river with the view of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
