This wonderful camp is secluded, breathtaking and relaxing. It's filled with honeymooners, families and couples experiencing the Mara. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the camp manager, James, is friendly, knowledgeable and an experienced hotelier. It's my first trip to Africa, and I have felt nothing but safe, accommodated and pampered. Do the research and discover that it's not... More

We had an amazing stay in this stunning location. The people were outstanding, amazing guides and great catering. The Nina tent is well appointed, luxurious and was maintained discreetly and regularly. The tours were excellent and ad hoc trips were arranged when we observed some lions from a distance and to visit the Masai village.

Firstly, the room and grounds are beautiful and authentic and we enjoyed watching and hearing the animals from the rock edge of our camp and our room. Secondly, the four course meals that we were receiving from the fantastic... More

A luxury tented camp with stunning views and leopards passing within 200-metres of your front door - or canvas flap ! O'Seki is a magical setting in a conservancy on the edge of the Masai Mara and with its own air strip. It has all the game of the Mara but far fewer visitors meaning that animals are not immediately... More

We returned to Kenya to celebrate my 60th birthday and Ol Seki was the perfect place to stay. All the staff and James the Manager were very welcoming. The room was spacious and comfortable and the food was delicious. Our local safari guide Rafael was exceptional which is essential when you are doing a safari. His interpretation, knowledge, patience and... More

I can't recommend Ol Seki more than what you have already seen. From the stunning views to the meet and greet, to the arrival at the camp, to the tour, the guides, the staff, the chef, the owner. Absolutely everyone and everything was stunning & perfect. It is extremely expensive however you pay for what you get. The most amazing... More

Ol Seki was one amazing experience, the staff, mostly locals, and James, the manager, were very professional and kind. Always very eager to make our stay just perfect. Our guide, Patrick Sowkei, was a local and knew every inch, and he certainly made a difference... All rooms / tents are great, with a great view, where with binoculars you can... More
