Attentive personnel and staff. They helped us organizing our whole trip in África. Without doubt Sekenani is the best place to stay in Masai Mara where I would spend no less than 3 or 4 nights. Incredible place

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... More

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

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.
