Sekenani Camp Maasai Mara Reviews
” One of my favorite camps in the Mara – and affordably priced. This is a good example of sensible luxury! The food is wonderful, the tented rooms (with a bathtub in the back) are amazing! And the staff and owners are kind and helpful. I’ve stayed here at least three times and have another trip planned for May. ” – melissa261
” Brilliant camp on the edge of the Mara, set in the bush in beautiful surroundings. Genuinely friendly staff, good food and an amazing local Maasai guide Simon. We were lucky to have one of the directors, Nick, at the camp who told several good stories around the camp fire pre dinner. Very comfortable tents. ” – Malcolm H
” This was my first experience in Kenya and on Safari. I was amazed at our accommodations!! I have traveled quite a bit and work in the hospitality industry, and this place had great service. The tents were well kept and had amazing views. The hot water and in-tent bathroom I was not expecting so a very pleasant plus. The food and service was prompt and delicious. We stayed only one night, but have no regrets. I want to come back and stay longer next time! If you are used to moderate to upscale hotels, you will not be disappointed with Sekenani Camp! ” – Sarah E
