Tents

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 Suite 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. 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.

Guest areas
