Ol Seki is a wonderful camp and a honeymoon hotspot. The tents here are some the largest we've seen and the view really is to die for. They also offer very good value if you jump on their special offers.

Ol Seki's Location

Located in the heart of the Naboisho Conservancy, Ol Seki borders the Masai Mara Reserve. The 200km squared private conservancy limits entry to clients actually staying in the area which allows an incredibly intimate safari experience and leaves the plains free for wildlife to thrive. In fact, research indicates that Naboisho has one of the highest densities of lion in Africa. The conservancy also has impressive numbers of elephants, giraffes, and other plains game in addition to hosting some of the rarest animals in Kenya such as Wild Dog.

Rooms at Ol Seki

If ever there was a definition of ‘glamping’ Ol Seki captures it in every sense. They have ten stylish tents, all with en-suite bathrooms, and each one expertly designed to offer secluded privacy and spacious accommodation in safari-chic muted tones of vanilla and taupe. They have six domed ‘Nina’ tents and two expansive family suites – ‘Simba’ and ‘Chui’. Hot running water and flush loos are a feature of every en-suite bathroom. These low-impact structures are camouflaged by the landscape and are fashioned for sustainability.

Every tent sits on a private vantage point up on the rocky escarpment offering a 270° view of the bush from your bed which takes in the slope of the acacia scrub where animals graze in the shade of the sparse trees. Beyond the immediate vista, the Ngama hills hem the horizon to the east and beyond lie the plains of the Maasai Mara.

Facilities at Ol Seki

The guest areas are all about the view overlooking watering hole where you will often see all kinds of plains game venturing for a much needed drink. The library is the quintessential safari scene that has remained largely unchanged, furnished with beautifully comfortable leather sofas and armchairs.

The lower deck provides a lantern-lit pathway. From this ledge, where the evening campfire blazes, you have an excellent view of the waterhole and the stars. Many warm evenings have been whiled away here in canvas safari chairs watching the sunset as the staff offer up the perfect G&T and some nibbles. Sinking a scotch and soda under the stars while the fire roars and the crickets hiss in the great outdoors is very memorable indeed.

Activities at Ol Seki

Private Dining

Enjoy the solitude of a private al fresco meal on the deck of your tent. In the Nina tents, the team will serve you from the kitchen, whilst in the Chui and Simba tents, a private chef will cook from the comfort of your private kitchen and serve you and your guests at your own dining table.

The Great Migration

From the vast Serengeti plains to the hills of Kenya’s Maasai Mara over 1.4 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra and gazelle, tirelessly tracked by Africa’s great predators, migrate in a clockwise direction over 1,800 miles each year in search of grazing territory.

Dining at Ol Seki

The lodge's experienced chef can create a variety of dishes such as pork fillet with sweet potato and prune glaze, mango and melon salad with raspberry vinaigrette, and lime cheesecake, while the staff pour you drinks. Breakfast can be before you head out for a morning game drive or after you come back. Lunch can be a perfect picnic out in the Reserve or a light lunch back in camp. After a long day on safari, afternoon tea is delivered to your room as you take a few hours to relax and re-energise. And if all that’s not enough, enjoy a 4-course dinner in camp or out in the bush under the stars.

Wildlife at Ol Seki

The Greater Mara region is home to Africa’s Big Five and the endless plains are the setting for the world’s ultimate wildlife spectacle – the Great Migration of almost 2 million herbivores as they risk life and limb in their search for fresh grass. That is just the start. There are over a thousand bird species to be found and when time allows and you’re not searching out a pride of lions or a herd of elephants, the sounds and smells of the Mara will keep you enthralled.
