As a geography professor, I have been traveling overseas for the past 30 years and I must say that Sekenani Camp was a great location with fantastic people and tents, service and hospitality. The Dean of Wildlife and Natural Resources at Narok University recommended this camp from personal experience and we were extremely pleased with everything. The self-titled Supreme Allied Commander of the camp, Mr. Lucho Ilkapur, was most welcoming and saw to all of our needs and requests. Be sure to ask to see his wonderful vegetable and herb garden that he is so very proud to show. The food was some of the best anywhere in tropical Africa (great Kenyan coffee, too, which is hard to find here), and elevated tents complete with hot water, baths, showers, and more that I could desire in such a location. If you are driving here be sure to enter the Masai Mara Reserve and the Sekenani Gate (look at a map!) and the camp will be easy to find.
