Room types at Hemingways Ol Seki

Chui Tent
1 of 1

Chui Tent

Featuring two large en-suite double bedrooms separated from a large central living space housing a private kitchen, lounge and dining room. A stone boardwalk connects the three distinct structures which means that if other members of your party want to stay up late in the private bar, you can retire to the quiet seclusion of your room next door. This suite is ideal for families or friends travelling together who would also like some privacy within the group.

Nina Tent
1 of 1

Nina Tent

These tents are ideal for couples. The high dome centers over a double bed decked out in fine linens. Six opening panels encompass the bed on three sides, which mean that from the comfort of your pillow, you can watch the dawn break in panorama. The rear section of the tent houses your en-suite bathroom and dressing area and in front of the tent is a large deck where you can enjoy private dining, sunbathing and star gazing.

Simba Tent
1 of 1

Simba Tent

Complete with kitchen, dining room and living area, which connects two enormous double bedrooms, both en-suite, this is perfect for families. There’s a fully stocked bar and fridge and you can decide the level of service you require – we can provide a butler to be present at all times or we can make our staff invisible and give you complete privacy.

Activities at Hemingways Ol Seki

Balloon Safari

Balloon Safari

One of the iconic experiences of a safari in Africa, a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Mara Reserve is a great way to get a different perspective on the park. The early morning Mara breeze will float you southwards towards Tanzania and as you follow the Mara River all the wonderful animals of the Mara are visible. The flight usually lasts about an hour and once you’re safely back on solid ground, celebrate the early morning escapade with a champagne breakfast in the bush.


Community Visits

Community Visits

As we work so closely with the local community, we have also been invited to take our guests along to some of the local village homes for an introduction into the Maasai lifestyle. There is always beadwork and carvings for sale during these visits so this is a perfect time to collect your souvenirs with the added benefit that your money contributes directly to the local Maasai women producing these exquisite artefacts. Don’t be afraid to bargain and barter however, it is expected.


Game Drives

Game Drives

Days are as action packed or as relaxed as guests want and being in a conservancy means we have the freedom to head out on game drives whenever suits; that might be at first light to capture the sunrise and an early morning cheetah hunt or that might be after dark to experience some of the alternative wildlife that you wouldn’t see during the day.

Especially during the months of the migration, many guests do enjoy one full day in the Mara Reserve itself, along the main rivers in the hopes of spotting a wildebeest crossing. We will of course arrange this for you, sending you out with a lovely picnic lunch and the drinks of your choice to enjoy the day.


Guided Walks

Guided Walks

Being in a conservancy we are also able to offer guided walks through the wilderness where you have the chance to learn about the area, the Maasai culture and all the plants of the region and their traditional uses. You’ll also have the chance to learn the tracks and scat of the animals that have passed by that day.


Horseback Safari

Horseback Safari

Explore the spectacular wilderness of the Mara Reserve on horseback. A morning’s horseback safari will give you a chance to experience the wild savannah of the Mara up close. During the adventure, you will probably come across the paw prints of lions rather than the footprints of human beings. There are also well trained and experienced guides to ride with you and show you the ropes. After the unforgettable adventure, treat your horse with a horse-friendly cookie for a job well done. Don’t just drive, ride.
