If ever there was a definition of ‘glamping’ Ol Seki captures it in every sense. We 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. We have six domed ‘Nina’ tents and two expansive family suites – ‘Simba’ and ‘Chui’. Hot running water blasting through rain showerheads and elegant 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.
These tents are ideal for couples. The high dome centers over a double bed decked out in fine linens. Six opening panels encompass the bed on three sides, which mean that from the comfort of your pillow, you can watch the dawn break in panorama. The rear section of the tent houses your en-suite bathroom and dressing area and in front of the tent is a large deck where you can enjoy private dining, sunbathing and star gazing.
Complete with kitchen, dining room and living area, which connects two enormous double bedrooms, both en-suite, this is perfect for families. There’s a fully stocked bar and fridge and you can decide the level of service you require – we can provide a butler to be present at all times or we can make our staff invisible and give you complete
Featuring two large en-suite twin bedrooms separated from a large central living space housing a private kitchen, lounge and dining room. A stone boardwalk connects the three distinct structures which means that if other members of your party want to stay up late in the private bar, you can retire to the quiet seclusion of your room next door. This suite is ideal for families or friends travelling together who would also like some privacy within the group.
Our experienced chef will impress you with a varied menu while our staff will pour your drinks. The beauty of our catering is its mobility – wherever you are in the Conservancy or the Reserve, you can indulge in excellent fresh food served on china plates and chilled drinks poured into real glasses. As well as being mobile we’re also flexible. 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.
With a near panoramic view of the acacia scrub beyond your table, the dining tent will excite your senses. Breakfast at Ol Seki Hemingways Mara offers a healthy continental buffet and a hearty and familiar English breakfast with our chef on hand to prepare your eggs exactly as you like them.
Lunch will re-energise after the morning’s excursions and dinner is sumptuous with an extensive repertoire of classic dishes made with locally sourced ingredients.
Perhaps you might prefer the solitude of a private al fresco meal on the deck of your tent. In the Nina tents, we will serve you from the kitchen and our waiters will attend to you unobtrusively. In the Chui and Simba tents, we can give you a private chef for the night who will cook in your personal kitchen and serve you at your own dining table.
Our kitchen is totally mobile so don’t be surprised if you find the dining floor is the grassy plain of the conservancy one evening or if the kitchen one morning is transformed into a tree trunk and trestle table. Our specially designed safari coolers and hampers make for the most luxurious picnic lunches too.
