I stayed at Tent No. 1 in Sekenani Camp for 5 nights and it has been a most memorable experience. The camp is situated in a most amazing place, near a waterhole, so you hear the animals without seeing them. The tent was spacious, bed comfortable, and overall maintenance top class. The service was spectacular. Special mention of Natalie and... More

My wife and I visited this dream getaway as part of our world tour in April 2013. It was my wife's clear favorite. The lions, the picnic and tea times in the middle of the bush attended by Masai warriors was surreal and memorable. Safari lovers should visit this place at least once - I visited it twice!

I had the most amazing time in the camp. I had not been to Africa for the last 13 years and didn't know what to expect but was blown away by everything. The entire camp is well maintained and the staff were very professional and they really took great care of us in a way I have never been treated... More

Our family stayed 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! It has the feel of camping but with cabin perks like wooden steps and raised frame and bathroom with running water, comfortable bed and electricity! Once I realized our Maasai guard was totally capable of handling any situation, I laid in my bed in awe of the sound of... More

A beautiful and quiet place. Kids loved every moment of our three nights stay. Clean rooms, good food but above all unforgettable hospitality from the staff. Would recommend it. I will certainly visit again!!

We arrived at Sekenani Camp later than expected yet lunch had been held for us, which was fantastic by the way....we had our briefing by Grace and then Natalie and Simon took over. Our tent was lifted above the edge of a lush creek and was luxurious! I went on a walking tour with Simon and two other Masai men... More

What an incredible place! Sekanani is a camp and the rooms and dining room and bar are in tents. That being said, these are luxurious tents. Each room is isolated and has full baths. They also have porches. The beds are turned down each night. Ours overlooked a stream and hillside where cape buffalo and gazelles came through. The food... More
