GUIDE ON OL SEKI HEMINGWAYS MARA IN KENYA
If you daydream about a luxurious Kenya vacation in pristine bush country, we recommend Ol Seki Mara, an up-market tented accommodation under the Hemingways brand. Perched on a rocky outcrop in the 50,000 acre Naboisho Conservancy, the camp offers spectacular views day and night. From your private verandah, you see the same resident and migratory species that you observe during your game drives and nature walks. The 10 guest tents including two interconnect family suites have an average of twenty guests capacity. With so few guests, the staff pampers you with attentive, friendly and discrete service. Your tent is ideally located to allow for 270-degree views right from your bed, whether you choose one of the six domed Nina tents or the two family suites with twin adjacent tents named after the lion and leopard in Kiswahili. The Nina tents feature large verandas with table and chairs where you can look across the vast valley below while enjoying a private meal and later indulge in a favorite book. Furnishings include a large bed, bedside trays and lamps, sofa and chairs augmented by a safari chest and handicrafts. The en-suite bathroom features vanity, shower and dressing area. Should you desire an ultra-boutique holiday in Masai Mara or if traveling as a four-person family, AfricanMecca recommends the suites at Ol Seki. The Simba Suite is a completely self-contained space with two ensuite bedrooms, full kitchen, living area, dining area and stocked bar, as well as a verandah with sofa-bed and telescope. The private driveway ensures that you are not disturbed by the presence of your children. You may also request a personal butler or see to your own needs if you need utmost privacy. The Chui Suite features two ensuite bedrooms, central living area, kitchen and dining area. The suite is divided into three distinct areas, making it perfect for your family bush trip in East Africa.
AfricanMecca guests who stay at Ol Seki Hemingways Mara are treated to a high-class African safari experience. The private ownership status of the conservancy means that there are no crowds. Additionally, the unfenced conservancy borders the reserve, allowing wildlife to roam freely between the two protected areas. Therefore, you see the flora and fauna of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem in both the conservancy and the reserve. The wildebeest migration is present in the Masai Mara from July through October. Your day starts with aromatic tea and coffee delivered to your tent before you dress. You then meet with your guide to plan the day’s activities. The morning light is perfect for nature and wildlife photography, and this is also when the animals are most active. As your exploratory tour of Masai Mara Game Reserve unfolds, you may feel like an early African explorer. Your guide skillfully navigates the terrain, demonstrating an astonishing ability to locate giraffes, gazelles, topis, buffalos, elephants, hippos and other wildlife. You will be amazed as your guide points to a shape in the distance and helps you recognize lounging lions, speedy cheetahs, elusive leopards and other carnivores (read more on best time to travel to the Masai Mara wilderness in south-western Kenya). Although breakfast is available at camp, you may wish to stay in the bush amidst the wildlife for your pre-booked morning bush meal. You then return to camp for a hot shower, nap and light reading. The chef prepares more gastronomic delights for lunch using fresh herbs and produces from the garden. With your appetite satisfied, you may have the energy to go on a guided birding walk, visit a local village or hike to Ndorobo Cave. Afternoon tea is served before your end of day game drive and sundowners. You then return to camp for a divine dinner before gathering around the campfire to enjoy the finest cognac. For an enthralling and aerial perspective of the Masai Mara ecosystem, we recommend that you experience a hot air balloon safari over the main reserve.
