We arrived to the most wonderful view of elephants ambling just outside our tents. The tents are spacious and clean. Loved the luxurious decor. The service was impeccable and our guide was very knowledgable.

We stayed in the Simba tent so not only had so much space we didn't know what to do with it in the bedrooms but also had a huge communal area which we had... More

My husband and I stayed at Ol Seki as part of our honeymoon in October 2015 and were totally blown away by it all. From the moment we landed on the dusty airfield we were greeted like old friends and treated to a wonderful first safari. The staff went out of their way to make sure our stay was truly... More

My husband and I spent three nights here during October 2015 and had the best time. The service - from the food to the safari guides to the camp staff - was incredible. We went on two game drives each day and saw a leopard with her cubs, lions, elephants, buffalo, giraffe, and so much more. We also took a... More
