Sekenani Camp

Masai Mara Amboseli & the South

Rating: Modest    

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 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 comes with a full-length bath, a real touch of luxury in the bush.

A suspension bridge connects the guest tents with the main tented dining area where you can enjoy freshly prepared dishes and drinks from the bar. By day the canvas sides of the tent are rolled up to showcase the views, and after dark they can be released for a cosy atmosphere. The adjacent deck looks out over well-maintained grounds towards the Ngama Hills in the distance. In the evening the camp fire creates the perfect setting for guests to enjoy a pre-dinner sundowner while listening to the wild sounds of Africa. For an extra special treat staff can arrange bush dinners, a lovely way to round off a day in the Mara.

The camp's proximity to the Masai Mara provides ample game viewing opportunities 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, escorted by Maasai guides who demonstrate their extensive knowledge of plants and animals. It's a great way to get a feeling for the details of this spectacular landscape. Over two hundred species of birds have been identified within one kilometre of the camp, so bird lovers are in their element. Other popular activities include balloon safaris and a half-day fishing expedition to Lake Victoria.

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.
