A small tented camp taking 32 people maximum set in a stunning valley location adjacent to the Mara. Very comfortable tents mounted on a wooden platform with a lovely view. Excellent, friendly staff who will accommodate your requests and not be bound by time restraints. My guide/driver was the best I've ever had and took me to parts of the... More

I just got back to Nairobi from Sekenani Camp. I was so impressed by the whole experience that I wanted to write a review right away. This was my first ever Safari, and boy was I blown away! I was picked up by one of the camp drivers in a Land Cruiser (you will see why this is important later)... More

This was our first safari in Kenya and we squeezed it in during a work trip...so we were not quite sure what to expect. Friends told us to come here and they were not mistaken. The camp is extremely comfortable and generally pretty laid back. The tents are huge and very well appointed, with a bath tub and all (had... More

A rough road in, but well worth it! As we turned into the camp we were met by a herd of elephants! The tents are very comfortable and private and security is tight with Masai present throughout the night and always available--suddenly at your side whenever you leave your tent at night--so quietly it is almost scarey! Meals are excellent,... More

My friends and I went to Kenya for the Beest Migration this Aug. We loved the animals and places there, but not the Sekenani Camp. We planned to stay in Masaai Mara for 4 nights and didn't intend to stay in Sekenani in our trip. However, since it came to our attention a few days before our departure that the... More

Sent here by another chain after showing up there and told that they were overbooked and hence could not accommodate us. Arrived at Sekenani full of anger and trepidation. Set in the thick of the Masai Mara several Eco -friendly cabins with the amenities one would expect from a 5 star resort. A swimming pool fed by a natural spring,... More

For purposes of rating i clicked May 2012 but travelled May 2009. Nick (Owner) made the trip memorable all the way from Nairobi to the Mara and back. Great holiday with random, interesting strangers. the Bush Breakfast was simply well set, delicious as a pack of Buffaloes watched closely by. the chef can spin a mean chocolate mousse:-).. The tents... More

Living in Kenya has given us the opportunity to enjoy many camps around the country. But Sekenani, a quiet paradise.in the Masai Mara, is special. Wildlife is abundant in the area, the raised sleeping places are lovely and comfortable. The food is great. A suggestion: Ask manager Kapur to show you his vegetable garden. Not only impressive what can be... More

The staff under Kapur were charming and helpful. The situation set amongst magnificent trees and on two perenial streams was delightful. The tents were comfortable and well sited. We saw more animals in one day than we have seen in many other game reserves. Our guide, Francis, was very knowledgeable on birds, animals, fauna and flora. We had wonderful personal... More

The manager Kapur was very welcoming. The food was excellent and the menu very accomodating (they made us exactly what we wanted on a very short notice). All the meals however were all exquisite especially as the vegetables were homegrown (and I mean on site with amazing taste). Tents were very clean and well maintained. Absolutely nothing we didnt like.... More
