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

Sekenani camp was a great experience, no phone, no internet and just the sounds of wildlife at night. The tents were very clean and spacious and with ours overlooking a small ravine, were very relaxing to come back to after a long day. Situated on the edge of the game reserve but with the grounds open to wildlife the Masai... More

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
