A perfect deluxe double
If ever there was a definition of ‘glamping’ Ol Seki captures it in every sense. We have ten stylish tents, all with en-suite bathrooms, and each one expertly designed to offer secluded privacy and spacious accommodation in safari-chic muted tones of vanilla and taupe. We have six domed ‘Nina’ tents and two expansive family suites – ‘Simba’ and ‘Chui’. Hot running water blasting through rain showerheads and elegant flush loos are a feature of every en-suite bathroom. These low impact structures are camouflaged by the landscape and are fashioned for sustainability.
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.
Kindly note that Olseki Hemingways Mara Camp has recently been partly refurbished and currently comprises 4 new Nina (double) Tents, 3 original Nina (double) Tents and the original Simba suited tent.
While we shall endeavor to offer the refurbished tents for all guests, this will not always be possible and we reserve the right to allocate guests to our available tents as we see fit. However, all guests will enjoy the benefit of the newly refurbished dining and lounge area. Final refurbishment of the remaining tents will be completed by June 2023.
Small and cozy our guest areas are all about the view overlooking your own private watering hole where you will often see all kinds of plains game venturing for a much needed drink. At night, you will find yourself in the warm glow of the paraffin lanterns and candlelight, the hazy bush noises singing in the background as you survey the Koyaki plains.
Come & peruse our literature collection and we’ll help you to drinks at any time of day or night...
Furnished with beautifully comfortable leather sofas and arm chairs, this is the quintessential safari scene that has remained largely unchanged for a century or more – no modern technological interruptions of digital noise or flashing images. Compare yourself to other safari-goers over the ages, captured in sepia images in coffee table books. Or contrast your experiences to those described in racy fiction of heady safari romances and dangerously wild encounters. Come and peruse the collection of literature and we’ll help you to drinks at any time of day or night.

Descend from the Library to the low deck, following the lantern-lit pathway. From this ledge, where the evening campfire blazes, you have an excellent view of the waterhole and the stars. Many warm evenings have been whiled away here in canvas safari chairs watching the sun set as our staff offer up the perfect G&T and some delicious nibbles. Sinking a scotch and soda under the stars while the fire roars and the crickets hiss in the great outdoors is so memorable – it’s unlike any other bar you will ever have frequented.
