We spent 3 unforgettable days with Melinda, the manager of the camp, and her team exploring the wild world of Maasai Mara. The camp is located on the hill which makes it a wonderful place to watch animals while dining, having cocktails in the lounge or just...

Although we were jet-lagged from the flight, a safari based at Ol Seki was a great choice - arriving early in the morning meant that we could grab lunch and relax before an evening game drive. The camp is outside,...

Ol Seki was our second stop on our Honeymoon in Kenya. We thought had been spoilt at our first safari camp, but Ol Seki took us to another level. The tent was spacious, with a seating area.

Even on a full day drive into...
