Hemingways Ol Seki Mara
Hemingways Ol Seki Mara is a small camp with only 10 tents - just the way we like it.
Located in the private and spectacular Naboisho conservancy, this glorious camp has been around a long while, with some of the team here since its inception. Service is easily personalised and tailored to your daily preferences.
The tents are on platforms, on a ridge – the views are very hard to beat, even from your bed. The name Ol Seki derives from the name of the sandpaper tree in the Maasai language, and is traditionally a symbol of peace. It is certainly very tranquil.
The Simba family ‘tent’ is really quite special – two full-sized bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms, connected by a large living and kitchen/dining area. The Chui family tent is very similar but more suited to families with older children, as the two sleeping areas are not interconnected.
The camp borders the main Masai Mara reserve and as such is an excellent base to catch the Great Migration of wildebeest from July to October, as well as experiencing all the delights of the private Naboisho conservancy, with much fewer tourists around than the main reserve.
