A wonderful exclusive camp with excellent service and wonderful staff! The food was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful game drives and game spotting. Highly recommend Hemingways Ol Seki to those looking for something special!

My husband and I spent three nights here during October 2015 and had the best time. The service - from the food to the safari guides to the camp staff - was incredible. We went on two game drives each day and saw a leopard with her cubs, lions, elephants, buffalo, giraffe, and so much more. We also took a... More

…From the moment we arrived at the airstrip in Ol Seki, the amazing service started. My wife and I were greeted by Robert, who was to be our guide for the duration, and driven to the camp/resort where we were welcomed by both James and Melinda. We were told that we would be staying in one of the family tents... More

The accommodation is very upmarket, in robust tents, embedded in the middle of the wilderness. It is a 10 min drive from the airstrip, and it is located in the heart of the Naboisho conservancy. Run by a British manager, this place is spotless clean, very well looked after and the Manager (Melinda) looks after all guest very well. There... More

Having been staying for 3 nights in a lodge, we didn't expect quite the same standard with a tent. Well, the tent was like the 'big top' from the outside, and inside was unbelievably huge with outstanding views. We stayed in Simba which is a suite, owing to the fact there were three of us. It was utter luxury and... More

We (4 adults) visited Ol Seki in the Masai Mara late September 2015 for 3 nights. We had a fantastic time and were looked after by the staff extremely well. Our “tents” were as good, if not better, than the most well-appointed hotel rooms we have ever had the good fortune to stay in – and between the 4 of... More

Spent 4 nights in Ol Seki in September as part of our honeymoon, the staff were all really friendly, the attention to detail was amazing and the food so tasty (you'd never know you were in the Massai Mara) Melinda's hosting made the stay feel so personal - nothing was to much trouble. George's game drives were second to none... More

Hemingways ol seki is a lovely plac for honeymooners; but too highly priced for basics. However the place is scenic and the customer service exemplary. We loved Raphael our tour guide masai driver, who promised not to marry a masai girl in order to stop the killing of lions. He was awesome ! Never go with children. You'll be going... More
