Ol Seki Hemingways Mara

Ol Seki is a tented lodge perched along a ridge in the heart of the exclusive Naboisho Conservancy, bordering the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Ol Seki Hemingways Mara has a stunning location with fantastic views from the central mess areas and the accommodation tents. The camp is exclusive and has a relaxed feel – the kind of place where you can switch off, open a good book and gaze out at the views in between exhilarating game drives. The tented accommodation is spacious and comfortable, and the two family suites are super for families and very private. Service, food and guiding are all good though we do not sell the property specifically on these factors. What is perhaps more significant is that considering the setting and exclusivity of the camp, we feel Ol Seki is one of the best value safari options in East Africa, and especially perfect for honeymooners and families on a first-time safari adventure.
