Hemingways Ol Seki Mara’s New Look

We are delighted to share Ol Seki’s exciting and refreshing new look which elevates the experience of staying at the camp substantially and, we believe, provides a new level luxury for camps in the Mara conservancies. We re-opened the camp in July and have been able to complete the refurbishment and upgrade of four Nina (double) tents as well as the substantial upgrade to the dining and lounge area overlooking the pool and Koiyaki plains.

Our new Nina tents have floor-to-ceiling folding glass frontages, with higher ceilings to give the best possible views over the Mara, completely new bathrooms with more luxurious fixtures and fittings including free standing bath tubs and indoor and outdoor showers, and re-configured layouts for even greater privacy.

The dining room and lounge area has been completely redesigned to create a larger open plan space for relaxation and dining, including a new bar and sunken baraza seating space, all of which will make the most of the fabulous views over the Mara plains

Taking inspiration from the circular shape and Bedouin feel of the Nina tents, the team at White Elephant Kenya have worked their magic on the interior design, introducing a tribal nomadic theme using hand carved mango wood, raffia and bakuba wall hangings from central Africa, locally hand-woven fabrics and custom designed brass and alabaster stone lights. Lattice wood divides, used throughout the new tents, dining and lounge areas, represent a modern take on a traditional Morroccan screen and allow for gentle air flow in the heat of the day and a cozy feel during the chilly nights.

As we re-open, we have the following tent inventory in use:

4 new upgraded Nina (double) tents

4 original Nina (double) tents

Original Simba family suite

Work is ongoing on the new Simba family suited tent at its new location and we will advise in due course once the work is complete. The traditional Simba tent is available and in use whilst we complete work on the new, improved version.

The four remaining original Nina tents will be upgraded in Q1 2023 and will therefore be removed from inventory for reservations during that period. The layout of Ol Seki will allow us to complete the necessary work quietly whilst keeping the rest of camp open and available for guests to enjoy.

New Infinity Swimming Pool at Hemingways Ol Seki

Great News!
Hemingways Ol Seki new infinity pool is complete and open for use.

The brand-new infinity pool is all ran entirely off-grid by the lodge’s solar farm. With some of the best views in the Mara overlooking a beautiful watering hole and the Koiyaki plains, Hemingways Ol Seki Mara’s new pool will be the perfect vantage point for game viewing from the comfort of a lounger or a deck chair, with G&T in hand.

Maintaining Ol Seki’s character, charm and authenticity, the new pool was built into the rock – traditionally common sunbathing spots for the lodge’s friendly rock hyrax – offering a calm and peaceful retreat, tucked below the main camp.

The new area will be an oasis of luxury for guests to soak up the sun and recharge in between game drives, while the beautiful new fire pit and seating area will be an ideal and rather magical spot for those traditional evening Mara sundowners.
