A beautiful and quiet place. Kids loved every moment of our three nights stay. Clean rooms, good food but above all unforgettable hospitality from the staff. Would recommend it. I will certainly visit again!!

We arrived at Sekenani Camp later than expected yet lunch had been held for us, which was fantastic by the way....we had our briefing by Grace and then Natalie and Simon took over. Our tent was lifted above the edge of a lush creek and was luxurious! I went on a walking tour with Simon and two other Masai men...

What an incredible place! Sekanani is a camp and the rooms and dining room and bar are in tents. That being said, these are luxurious tents. Each room is isolated and has full baths. They also have porches. The beds are turned down each night. Ours overlooked a stream and hillside where cape buffalo and gazelles came through. The food...

Sekenani camp was a great experience, no phone, no internet and just the sounds of wildlife at night. The tents were very clean and spacious and with ours overlooking a small ravine, were very relaxing to come back to after a long day. Situated on the edge of the game reserve but with the grounds open to wildlife the Masai...

A small tented camp taking 32 people maximum set in a stunning valley location adjacent to the Mara. Very comfortable tents mounted on a wooden platform with a lovely view. Excellent, friendly staff who will accommodate your requests and not be bound by time restraints. My guide/driver was the best I've ever had and took me to parts of the...

I just got back to Nairobi from Sekenani Camp. I was so impressed by the whole experience that I wanted to write a review right away. This was my first ever Safari, and boy was I blown away! I was picked up by one of the camp drivers in a Land Cruiser (you will see why this is important later)...

This was our first safari in Kenya and we squeezed it in during a work trip...so we were not quite sure what to expect. Friends told us to come here and they were not mistaken. The camp is extremely comfortable and generally pretty laid back. The tents are huge and very well appointed, with a bath tub and all (had...

A rough road in, but well worth it! As we turned into the camp we were met by a herd of elephants! The tents are very comfortable and private and security is tight with Masai present throughout the night and always available--suddenly at your side whenever you leave your tent at night--so quietly it is almost scarey! Meals are excellent,...

My friends and I went to Kenya for the Beest Migration this Aug. We loved the animals and places there, but not the Sekenani Camp. We planned to stay in Masaai Mara for 4 nights and didn't intend to stay in Sekenani in our trip. However, since it came to our attention a few days before our departure that the...
