My husband & I spent a couple of days at Sekenani Camp as part of our hectic family visit to Kenya at Christmas time.
Even before we arrived, the Nairobi Head Office staff had been very informative and interactive both online and by phone so we felt confident we'd be looked after very well. This was matched by the ground staff who met us off the plane at Mara and the staff at the camp who looked after us so well.
The camp was beautifully landscaped; our tent which had wooden floor boards, ceramic bath, electricity and hot water was kept clean at all times; the food was delicious and cooked for the international guest while maintaining local traditional recipes where possible; we had the best G&T appertifs by the camp fire and always felt safe and secure with the Maasai guards keeping an eye on the camp overnight.
We'd like to say a special Thanks to Adan, our safari guide who met us at the airstrip and on our first 2hrs showed us 3 of The Big Five plus my personal favourite the gorgeously elegant Giraffes. By the end of our 2 day stay, we'd seen a male leopard frolicking with a female; a lioness cub calling out her cubs who came running out of their den to meet their Mum; a pack of lions enjoying a tasty wilderbeest; a cheetah with her 6, yes, SIX cubs all growing beautifully and healthily. And lets not forget the elephants, zebras, buffalos, birds... We were incredibly impressed with Adan's friendliness and knowledge. He was always in control of the situations we found ourselves in.

We've already started to plan our return to Sekenani for a longer stay. We would highly recommend Sekenani Camp to everyone.

I have visited many camps and hotels in the Mara. Sekenani is my favorite. The peaceful setting, intimate atmosphere, attention to guests, excellent food and beautiful private tents nestled above the springs and forest, all add to its charm. Nick Wood and staff make every guest feel as if they are part of the family and pay attention to the smallest details to ensure a perfect stay. I was very impressed with the concern and care Sekenani shows for the environment and their relationship with local communities. The birding and wildlife viewing in camp and nearby are exceptional.

We heard about the Sekenani Camp from a friend who had been there. We contacted their office at {--} . From the first contact until our departure, Bettina and Tonny were fantastic. They answered all of our questions and arranged everything. All we had to do was get to Nairobi, Kenya.

From the moment you arrive in the Masai Mara until the time you depart, Sekenani camp offers you the experience of a lifetime. The staff caters to each guest and takes pride in the service they provide. The accommodations are clean, cosy and comfortable. We’ve never slept better! The view from each tent is spectacular. The food is good and well presented. Your itinerary during your stay can be as individual as your heart desires.

The game drive guides are experienced and professional. Our guide, Adan, was a wealth of knowledge. Not only did we see a wide variety of animals, he also gave us information regarding their habits and habitat. Each day’s drive in the Masai Mara was spectacular. We were two persons, with our guide, in a Land Cruiser, driving through the most awe inspiring National Reserve. The Sekenani camp experience exceeded our expectations.

Sekenani is a great camp just outside the reserve secluded in a beautiful wooded area with a stream running underneath (literally...a walking bridge extends over the stream to your tent). The tents are very well-appointed and comfortable, the food is great featuring fresh produce from their own garden, and the staff purposely creates a homey, but classy atmosphere for their guests. The owner, Nick and manager, Kapur, get to know everyone personally in this "boutique" camp of only 12-15 tents. The accomodations and food alone would have us come back, but the clincher was the tremendous guide we had for our 4-day visit. Adan Hassan kept our entire family (including 4 teenagers) highly involved and looking forward to the next drive into the Mara. Ask for him if you get a chance.

I would highly recommend Sekenani camp as a really wonderful place to stay in the Masai Mara. It is small enough to be quiet and intimate; the staff are friendly and extremely knowledgeable. This was my third visit, they now have a pool, and an innovative re-cycling system which must make it one of the ‘greenest’ camps in the Mara. Just go, you will love it.
