This place was suggested to me by a relative and I am glad I chose it! It was beautiful, serene and the tents were spacious and comfortable. The food was good, small portions but...

This place is amazing - I go as often as I can, every time I'm in East Africa. I adore the views, the food, the service, the comfy rooms, the hot water bottles to warm your feet at night. It is unreal. I've stayed at five-star luxury camps in the Mara and I still like Sekenani best!

My family with 2 teenage daughters stayed here for 3 nights at end of July. The camp was perfect for us. Cozy, relatively quiet (only 15 units), beautifully nested in nature. The cabins were great with plenty of space and great views. The food was reasonable for a camp like this and the main tent for meals was always set...

This camp has 15 tents, well apart from each other. In the middle of nowhere, so you will hear and see different animals at night. - The tents are excellent - service is excellent - food is fine; small portions for take-away lunch boxes - cleanliness is excellent All in all recommended, although a bit far from the crossing area

The accommodation was beautiful as was the setting. All in all a stunning location. Unfortunately the food lets it down unless you like bland boring western food with no choice. The chef did try and made one reasonable chicken curry and one vegetarion one night as our driver complained about the food, unfortunately the next 2 days went back to...

It's great to have a "homey" place after a game drive! The camp is simple yet elegant complemented bystaff with attention to details to make one's stay personally especial. It's a treat to be away from busyness and internet world; to focus on the moment; savour what nature/ enviroment can do for weary souls.

Sekenani is a great choice when visiting the Masai Mara. It is close to the Sekenani Gate, has beautiful tents with lots of privacy, and great dining area.

We visited the camp with my mum and daughter and I must say the staff are extremely friendly..they made our stay a memorable one..we felt home away from home. We always looked foward to return to the camp after a full day game drive..lovely environment and atmosphere to crown the day. Well done Sekenani.
