The campsite is amazing. Its within the forest and the property is quite big. They have an amazing security escorts especially once it becomes dark. The securities are around the tents all night to safeguard the tourists in case they come out for any emergency during the night. The food is okay. Since I'm a vegetarian I didn't quite like the meals given to me. For my husband the non vegetarian meals were quite okay. They've very limited menu which they tell you and you have to choose from that. The tents are quite luxurious.

The cabins are well spread out so you feel very private. At night they have a Masai escort you to and from the cabin/tent. We saw monkeys, a tree hyrax, lots of birds and a leopard tortoise on the grounds. We also heard hyenas and elephants at night. The food is fabulous, the dining room is beautiful, the fire pits on the patio are really a nice place to hang out. The staff could not be more pleasant and helpful

The entire staff at the Sekenai Camp was warm, welcoming, very friendly and professional. There were plenty of staff members, so that your every need was either anticipated or answered immediately. We felt so pampered and cared for! Attention to detail and quality was superb in all areas: food, accommodations, grounds, and activities. The tent cabins were cozy yet spacious and immaculate, with a full bathroom. They even came in while you were eating their 5 star dinner and sitting by the fire to turn down your bed and place hot water bottles in it! Each cabin is set a bit away from another so you get the feeling of privacy, yet feel very safe with the 5 guards. They walk you to your cabin or wherever you want to go after dark in case animals have come in the camp. We loved getting up extra early to try to see some of these animals right from our deck: vervet monkeys, baboons, water buffalo and antelope to name a few! Loved the stream flowing through the camp, which contributed to even more wildlife. Theres even a swimming pool! If we are able to go on another safari, we will definitely go right back to Sekenani Camp!
