Ol Seki Hemingways Mara

Masai Mara

Days 1 - 3: Masai Mara

Ol Seki Hemingways Mara Location Map

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 uniquely rounded en-suite Nina tents, each boasting a 270 degree panoramic view across the vast plains. Each tent remains completely hidden from the next for the utmost privacy and seclusion.

There are also 2 Family Tents, both with 2 bedrooms and a lounge area, and which also include the service of a private safari vehicle and guide for the duration of your stay.

Kempinski Seychelles Resort Location Map

Kempinski Seychelles Resort is an indulgent retreat that captures the spirit of the Seychelles. Located on the exclusive south end of Mahe directly on the famous Baie Lazare, the resort is a mere 30 minutes from the international airport and only 40 minutes from the capital Victoria. Discover a world of exceptional experiences, from tranquil beachside luxury to soothing nature-based leisure activities and enjoy a holiday that complements your every desire.

The resort is located on an 800m stretch of remarkably beautiful beach. Sun loungers are discreetly positioned between palm trees along the length of the beach, creating a remarkable sense of privacy. Despite being positioned on a beautifully landscaped 64 hectare property, the resort has been laid out in such a way that guests are never very far away from the water.

The temperature is warm enough to swim all year round, but, if ever you tire of swimming or snorkelling in the crystal-clear Indian Ocean, there is an Olympic-length swimming pool, where guests can cool off or burn some energy swimming laps. There is even a children's paddling pool at the Kids Club, so that no guest is left out of the aquatic fun.

The south of Mahe has some of the most beautiful and diverse dive sites in the Seychelles. The resort's 5* PADI dive centre at the resort is able to cater for divers of all experience levels - from seasoned dive masters to absolute beginners who are eager to experience the magic of scuba diving for the very first time. They also offer various PADI courses for guests that are interested in advancing their scuba skills during their stay.

Glass bottom boat excursions, surfing, and kayaking excursions can be booked at the Watersports Pavillion for fun on the water rather than in the water.

The Kempinski Spa offers a range of treatments and also has a fully equipped fitness centre. The resort also has tennis and volleyball courts, a casino and bike hire.

Elegantly appointed Hill View, Beachside and Sea View rooms promote a feeling of tranquility and bliss. All rooms are decorated in warm, earthy tones and are equipped with modern amenities. 

Diverse flavours capture the cultural mix of the Seychelles and you can experience this at the various bars and restaurants found within the resort. Private dining options are also available.
