Ol Seki Hemingway, Masai Mara

Ol Seki Hemingway is something different in the world of safari camps. For a start, it borders the great Mara, famous for its vast herds of plains animals, and there are no fences to stop the game from roaming freely around the camp. So it’s usual to be able to view all manner of wildlife within a few minutes of Ol Seki Hemingway, and our local guides are adept at sensing where and when the animals will arrive. So they should be. The majority of Ol Seki’s trackers and rangers were born and brought up within just 15 kms of the camp, so if you want a real insight into the local environment and indigenous creatures on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Kenya… just ask a local.
