Sekanani Camp offers older luxury tents with generous viewing platforms and spacious full bathrooms - all set in acres of natural gardens close to the Sekanani Gate and a small Maasai community. We loved the warm welcome, very personal service, good food, great guides and superb game viewing.

Best Outdoors/Tented/Luxury Camp experience I've had! Service was outstanding, most peaceful accommodation I've ever had. While there was wildlife lurking about, I felt safe, and extremely relaxed. It was brilliant from arrival to checkout, and the food was some of the best I experienced in Africa! Big Cheers to all the staff!

If you want to stay in a camp that makes you feel close to nature and the animals this is it. My fiancé and I stayed here at the beginning of January and will recommend the place to everyone. First the staff made you feel like VIP every step of the way. Every time you step out of your tent... More

I stayed here on my own for a week and had an amazing time. Staff were amazing, safari tours were fun and the tent rooms were simple but perfect. The swimming pool needed cleaning but it was too cold to swim so that was fine. Great for a solo female looking for a bit of quiet. Beware their monkeys who,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in September 2013. This was my 5th visit to Kenya but my first visit to Sekanani Camp. I loved it. It is an open camp, therefore wild animals can enter. Crossing the bridge back to our tent from dinner, our security guard shone his torch down on some elephants which had entered the camp... More

We spent 3 nights at Sekanani in July while visiting the Massai Mara. The 3 other camps we stayed on this safari were fantastic in every way, but I think I would rank Sekanani near the top. It was that good. Maybe I feel that way because after being in 2 “wilderness” camps and 1 “less wild” camp, Sekanani was... More

We just returned from three weeks in Africa and Sekanani ranks at the top of our list. Located in the forest on the Sekanani river it provided a lovely respite after long days on the plains. The staff were exceptionally friendly and the food was delicious. They treated us to a meal of "yama choma" roast goat when we saw... More

There were so many things about Sekenani that we loved. It's a beautiful camp, the tents are clean, comfortable, cozy. The recycling program is impressive to say the least. The concept of the camp (with the money going back to the local Maasai community in concrete ways) is very well considered. And the food was very good. (I'm not a... More

Sekenani Camp offered a luxury tent camp setting with amazing hospitality by the camp owner, Nick, and his faithful sidekick, Festus. The luxury tents were great, the view was wonderful and the entire setting was peaceful, relaxing and very classy. The food was delicious and the safari experience they provided was amazing. The Sekenani guides made sure we had a... More
