Your dedicated butler will know that you prefer Earl Grey to Assam with your scones and Cornish clotted cream and he’ll remember which trousers you like pressed flat and which ones need a central crease.

So while you’re reposing in the spar or discussing the delicacies of the a la carte menu with their Michelin – starred chef in the private dining room, back in your suite your butler will have dimmed the lights, adjusted your personalised pillows, set out your nightcap and arranged the morning’s outing to the game park down to the last detail.

Welcome to Hemingways OL Seki, Mara

This private tented camp bordering the Masai Mara is your enclave of luxury in the wildest terrain of Kenya. They offer a choice of 10 exclusive tents in which to host you and the entire 200 km square of Naboisho Conservancy to reveal exclusively to you.

So what’s special about Ol Seki?

The location - The conservancy borders the Mara, no fences to inhibit the migration of animals which means you should see the big five and all the other indigenous animals on your check list right here, sometimes within five minutes of the camp. Only vehicles from the properties are allowed in the conservancy, so you see wildlife, not minibuses. The view from the camp is spectacular; the Mara is mostly flat plains but is elevated on a rocky escarpment so you can see for miles.

The tents – The size of the tents is remarkable and the exquisite paleness of the colours compliments the beauty of the designs.

The people - The majority of the staff were brought up within a 15 km radius of the camp. They know the land intimately and they care about it. Everyone has an excellent knowledge of the area, not only the guards, and they will be delighted to answer questions you may have on the surrounding areas.

The service – The camp is small and personally tailored every day to suit what you want. They are friendly, totally flexible and dedicated to making your time at Ol Seki an unparalleled adventure in the realms of safari. We dine with you and host you by the fireside but we also know how to create total privacy for you whenever you feel like it.
