Sekenani Camp

Masai Mara Amboseli & the South

Rating: Simple    

Sekenani Camp overview

Sekenani Camp is nestled beside a small brook in the foothills of the Ngama Highlands and is on the boundary of the Masai Mara Game Reserve. The camp is built at the source of the Sekenani River which rises from a rock pool at the east end of the camp and forms the stream, which flows in front of each tent.

Sekenani Camp comprises of fifteen well-designed and spacious tents that combine simple elegance with comfort. Each one benefits from views out across the surrounding hills and valleys and yet provides a secluded and private setting in the bush. During the evening buffalo and elephant can seen drinking from the brook while leopard sightings have also been known. The en suite bathroom, complete with a full-length bath, makes these among possibly the most beautifully appointed tents in the Mara.

A suspension bridge connects the guest tents with the dining room area where guests can enjoy freshly prepared dishes and a well-stocked bar. The patio area is set amongst the well-maintained grounds whilst enjoying views of the Ngama Hills in the distance. Evening log fires in front of the dining room are the perfect setting for guests to enjoy a pre-dinner 'sundowner' while listening to the wild sounds of Africa.

The camp's proximity to the Masai Mara provides ample game viewing opportunities for guests including some great elephant sightings on the fringes of the forested hills. In addition to game drives Sekenani Camp offers walking safaris in the surrounding hills. Guests are escorted by Maasai guides who demonstrate their extensive knowledge of plants and animals while surrounded by spectacular landscapes in every direction. Over two hundred species of birds have been identified within one kilometre of the camp. Other popular activities include balloon safaris and a half-day fishing expedition to Lake Victoria.

Fair Trade / Responsible Travel:
Sekenani Camp is operated in conjunction with 26 Maasai families who have a share in the business. It is the logistical centre for a community project developing infrastructure for health-care, veterinary services, education and clean water for people living around the reserve. Guests who are interested can visit some of the areas project sites.

The camp has introduced fuel-efficient stoves, and is exploring the role of fast- growing tree lots to provide cooking fuel to an expanding population.
