Ol Seki Hemingways Mara Camp,Kenya

This stunning private tented camp is your enclave of luxury in the wildest terrain of Kenya. 9 exclusive luxury tents with 270° panoramic views of the Mara plains.

Hemingways Ol Seki Mara is located in the heart of the Naboisho Conservancy which borders the Maasai Mara Reserve. The conservancy limits entry to clients actually staying inside the area and offers an incredibly private safari experience. We have a choice of nine exclusive tents in which to host you accompanied by some breathtaking views and the warmest Kenyan hospitality you could wish for. There is no typical day at Hemingways Ol Seki Mara. We’re small and aim to personally tailor every day to suit what you want making your time in the Mara an unparalleled adventure in the realms of safari.


Small and exclusive, Ol Seki Hemingways Mara hosts a maximum of 20 guests. Each stylish tent has been designed to offer secluded privacy and spacious accommodation in muted tones with a twist of Bedouin style as a nod to the shape and style of the tents. Locally sourced fabrics and furniture, a writers desk and a large comfy day bed add further comfort.

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.

The Simba Private Villa

The Simba Private Villa is a self-contained penthouse in the bush with a private driveway. Complete with kitchen, dining room and living area, the tent connects two enormous double bedrooms, both ensuite. There’s a fully stocked bar and fridge and guests can decide the level of service they require – a butler can be present at all times to pour drinks and make coffee as required, or staff will stay in the background to give guests the freedom to help themselves to the amenities.

Family tent

The expansive terrace with small plunge pool provides an ideal viewpoint for wildlife watching during the day and stargazing at night. The main feature of the Simba Suite is exclusivity with your own dedicated chef for all meals as well as a private game drive vehicle and guide.

Nina Tent

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.

Exquisite & Wild Cuisine

This is bush life at its most glamorous – fine cuisine, a fully stocked bar and personal service.The 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-energize. And if all that’s not enough, enjoy a 3 course dinner in camp or out in the bush under the stars.


200km² of private conservancy thronging with wildlife and adventure year round. Add to that the large rolling plains of the world famous Mara Reserve featuring the greatest show on earth from July to October. The result is a truly spectacular once-in-a-lifetime safari experience.


The privilege of a private conservancy is 200km² to explore exclusively. Naboisho is your secluded wilderness, away from the flash and chatter of tourists. There’s so much to discover here – myriad wildlife indigenous to East Africa, as well as the wild birds and plants. You might like to meet the local Maasai herdsmen and their families and learn about their pastoral way of life. Or take a hike, visit a N’dorobo cave, watch birds, photograph the sunset, dine under the stars or soar above the plains in a hot air balloon. You’ll love the personally tailored experience Ol Seki Hemingways Mara offers in the hands of our attentive, observant guides.

Game Drives

Days are as action packed or as relaxed as guests want and being in a conservancy means we have the freedom to head out on game drives whenever suits; that might be at first light to capture the sunrise and an early morning cheetah hunt or that might be after dark to experience some of the alternative wildlife that you wouldn’t see during the day.

Especially during the months of the migration, many guests do enjoy one full day in the Mara Reserve itself, along the main rivers in the hopes of spotting a wildebeest crossing. We will of course arrange this for you, sending you out with a lovely picnic lunch and the drinks of your choice to enjoy the day. 

Guided Walks

Being in a conservancy we are also able to offer guided walks through the wilderness where you have the chance to learn about the area, the Maasai culture and all the plants of the region and their traditional uses.  You’ll also have the chance to learn the tracks and scat of the animals that have passed by that day. 

Community Visits

As we work so closely with the local community, we have also been invited to take our guests along to some of the local village homes for an introduction into the Maasai lifestyle.  There is always beadwork and carvings for sale during these visits so this is a perfect time to collect your souvenirs with the added benefit that your money contributes directly to the local Maasai women producing these exquisite artefacts.  Don’t be afraid to bargain and barter however, it is expected.

Hot Air Balloon Safaris

One of the iconic experiences of a safari in Africa, a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Mara Reserve is a great way to get a different perspective on the park. The early morning Mara breeze will float you southwards towards Tanzania and as you follow the Mara River all the wonderful animals of the Mara are visible. The flight usually lasts about an hour and once you’re safely back on solid ground, celebrate the early morning escapade with a champagne breakfast in the bush
