Located In the heart of the Naboisho Conservancy, adjoining the Masai Mara National Reserve, guests at Ol Seki Hemingways are offered a uniquely private safari experience.
Enjoy Big 5 game viewing in an open safari vehicle in the pristine surroundings of the conservancy, where the abundance of wildlife allows guests to enjoy day and night drives away from the hustle of mass tourism. Only 6 guests are on each safari vehicle, so everyone is guaranteed a 'window seat' for excellent photographic opportunities. Day trips into the Masai Mara National Reserve can also be organised on request, along with a hot air balloon safari, guided walks with a Masai guide, and cultural visits to the local Masai community.
The library tent offers an extensive selection of local and international literature, giving guests the chance to enjoy a read while soaking in the stunning views of the plains. Share a story with fellow guests and staff over a drink from the complimentary bar. Traditional African decor and colonial furnishing provide the perfect safari atmosphere.
Down from the library, along a lantern lit pathway you will come to the viewing deck. Take in the incredible views of the nearby waterhole in the day and in the evening look up to see the incredible African night sky, sundowners in hand as the evening campfire blazes. During the heat of the day, cool off and take a dip in the infinity pool.
Move into the dining tent and enjoy a 3 course selection of international cuisine while you watch the giraffe graze below. For a more romantic setting, meals can be organised in the privacy of your tent, or perhaps you would prefer to enjoy a romantic candle lit dinner under the nearby ancient Ndorobo caves.
There are 6 luxury high domed safari tents, each boasting floor to ceiling glass sliding doors opening onto a large private terrace with a 270 degree panoramic view across the vast plains. Each tent remains completely hidden from the next for the utmost privacy and seclusion.
The Simba Private Villa is made up of two enormous double bedrooms, both en-suite, with a magnificent terrace with private plunge pool, a private chef as well as a private game drive vehicle and guide. The Villa is sold as one unit and can take up to either 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 children giving you an entirely exclusive getaway.
All meals; Conservancy fees; soft drinks, beer and house wine; airstrip transfers; one shared night drive and one shared bush breakfast; and twice-daily shared game drives in the Conservancy are included. Additional day game drives into the Masai Mara National Reserve can be arranged (the Masai Mara National Reserve daily fee will be an additional per person cost).
Children of any age are welcome. Rates available on request.
All of the holidays we prepare are tailor-made, but this might give you an idea of how Ol Seki Hemingways Mara can be included in you own dream holiday.
