Ol Seki is set in the Naboisho conservancy which is located to the East of Olare Motogori North East of the Mara National Reserve. It is a stunning camp in its own right, each of the rooms is perched atop a small escarpment and so has fantastic views down to the grassland plain below and the Loita Hills in the distance. The camp is absolutely beautiful and recently Naboisho has become renowned to be a great area for game viewing. Although in previous years it lacked the density of the Mara, with successful conservation efforts, this is now home to some of the highest lion densities in the Mara eco-system.
Ol Seki - The Details
Located In the heart of Eastern Koiyaki, Ol Seki Mara Camp offers 6 luxury “Nina” tents, each boasting a 270 degree panoramic view of the famous Maasai Mara, along with 2 brand new two bedroom “Suited” tents. Traditional colonial décor coupled with all the modern amenities provide guests with a genuine Safari
Each uniquely designed bedroom tent remains completely hidden from the next, providing every client with the utmost privacy and seclusion. The abundance of wildlife in the Koiyaki area allows guests to enjoy big five game viewing in a pristine and untouched wilderness surrounding away from the hustle of mass tourism.
The thoughtful modern architecture creates a luxurious living space in the six uniquely rounded tents, each boasting a double and a single bed, dressed in the highest quality linen. A large en-suite bathroom and changing area with flush toilet and hot shower allow for total comfort whilst maintaining the Safari atmosphere.
Each Nina remains hidden from the next offering total privacy and seclusion. Six opening panels allow guests to enjoy a breathtaking 270 degree view of the Mara plains. All of the tents are designed to meet environmental demands, creating the smallest of footprints.
Although generally speaking the Mara conservancies do not host the same density of wildlife that the National Reserve does, especially when a portion of the wildebeest migration visitis between July and October, escaping the crowds and having controlled sightings pays dividends, especially if you are after a more exclusive wildlife experience.
If the migration is one of the main reasons for visiting the Mara, we would certainly recommend splitting your time between the National Reserve as well as the conservancies. As well as having less visitors, the conservancies can offer walking safaris, night drives and often allow off-rorading in comparison to the far stricter rules of the National Reserve.
Nothing quite rounds off a safari with some time at the beach. From the Mara heading to Lamu on the coast, or even heading further afield to Zanzibar is all possible. Whether you're a couple on honeymoon or a family, having some rest and relaxation at the beach is the perfect way to relax and unwind after an enthralling safari.
