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 unique safari experience.

Enjoy Big 5 game viewing in the pristine surroundings of the conservancy, where the abundance of wildlife allows guests to enjoy day and night drives in pristine and untouched surroundings away from the hustle of mass tourism. Day trips into the Masai Mara National Reserve can also be organised on request, along with a hot air balloon safari and many more activities.

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 a candle lit dinner under the ancient Ndorobo caves.

Ol Seki Hemingways offers 6 uniquely rounded en-suite Nina tents, each boasting a 270 degree panoramic view of the famous Masai Mara, along with 2 Family tents, both with 2 bedrooms. Traditional colonial decor coupled with all the modern amenities provide guests with a genuine safari experience.

Each tent remains completely hidden from the next, providing every client with the utmost privacy and seclusion.

The Family Tents also include the service of a private safari vehicle and guide for the duration of your stay.

The Kenyan Coast

Days 4 - 10: The Kenyan Coast

Kinondo Kwetu Location Map

Kinondo Kwetu is a private hideaway, situated right on a beach lapped by the warm Indian Ocean. Although Kinondo Kwetu is the ideal place for simply doing nothing at all, it offers exciting possibilities for all adventurers big and small.

The vast East African reef is there for you to explore, be it scuba diving, snorkelling, or by boat. Try deep-sea fishing. Or learn kite boarding, an exhilarating sport perfectly suited for the southern coast of Kenya.  The lodge has its own PADI center, so if you are thinking of getting a diving certificate, do it at Kinondo Kwetu.  For sailing enthusiasts, the small Kenyan outriggers will give you lots of fun. Or come along on a cruise on one of the traditional dhows. Or go horseback riding, or go on an excursion along the coast to nearby islands and up a river looking for crocodiles.

And if you want to see wildlife, like elephants, giraffes, buffalos, antelopes, and other African animals in the wild, Shimba Hills National Park is only a short drive away.

Trips to Kinondo village or a daytrip into Mombasa will give you the spectrum of life in Kenya, and can be arranged from the lodge also.  Finally, golfers can enjoy a game on the 18-hole course only 15 minutes away.

Offering a range of accommodation, every room and cottage has its own personalized character, as each one is furnished and decorated with Swahili culture handicraft and antiquities. All rooms have fans and mosquito nets.

There are plenty of quiet, beautiful spots where you can retire to spend time by yourself or if you are feeling more sociable, to enjoy the company of fellow guests in the library or in one of the living rooms.
