Ol Seki Hemingway's Mara Camp is location in the eastern part at a permanent site on the Koiyaki Group Ranch, north of Mara Game Reserve. Ol Seki is set in the eastern part of the Koiyaki conservation area, an area populated with Masai, but also home to good game, particularly when the Loita Wildebeest migration comes in from the North East.
Between June and July the Aitong plains to the North and West team with migrating wildebeest and Zebra and, of course, numerous predators. For the rest of the year, resident game is ever present, although not in such large numbers as in the Mara National Reserve.
Ol Seki Hemingway's Mara Camp is located in the heart of Eastern Part of Koiyaki Community Area, North of Mara Game Reserve. Scheduled flights from Nairobi land into nearby Siana Airstrip and a transfer to Ol Seki Camp takes 40 Minutes. By road from Nairobi, the Safari to Ol Seki Mara Camp takes five to six hours, via Narok. Ol Seki Hemingway's Mara Camp can also be accessed by Private Charter Flight landing at Koiyaki Airstrip 20 minutes away.
Our camp is small and exclusive which means we can only host a maximum of 20 guests. We have eight stylish tents, each one expertly designed to offer secluded privacy and spacious accommodation in safari-chic muted tones of vanilla and taupe. Every tent sits on a private vantage point up on the rocky escarpment so you have a 270 degree view of the bush from your bed.
We have six domed Nina tents and two expansive suites - Simba and Chui. Hot running water blasting through rain shower-heads and dainty flush loos are a feature of every ensuite bathroom. These low-impact structures are camouflaged by the landscape and are fashioned for sustainability - they include ingenious features that promote conservation and minimise waste.
This is bush life at its most glamourous - we will treat you to fine cuisine, a fully stocked bar and personal service that allows you to unwind while our staff take care of all the essentials. Evans, our experienced chef will impress you with a varied menu while our drivers and guides will pour your drinks.
The beauty of our catering is its mobility - wherever you are in the conservancy or the reserve, you can indulge in excellent food served on china plates and chilled drinks poured into real glasses. Afternoon tea, coffee and home-baked cake is delivered to your room. All your drinks and food are inclusive at Ol Seki.
The privilege of a private conservancy is 200 square kilometres to explore exclusively. Rarely do you encounter another vehicle, until you head into the Masai Mara National Reserve. Naboisho is your secluded wilderness, away from the flash and chatter of tourists.
There's so much to discover - the big five reside here alongside myriad wildlife indigenous to East Africa. As well as the wild birds and beasts and plants, you might like to meet the local Masai herdsmen and their families and learn about their pastoral way of life. Read more about them in the Community section. Hike, visit an N'dorobo cave, watch birds, photograph the sunset, dine under the stars, soar above the plains in a hot air balloon - you'll love the personally tailored experience Ol Seki offers in the hands of our attentive, observant guides.
In 2002, Joash Were who has been instrumental in start up of many companies within Kenya and Beyond thought of it wisely that it was time to start up something tourism related. He had worked at great places. Bearing in mind that all the progressive people talk “WE” and not I, he has brought together a great team who are professional in their own rights.
