Ol SEKI - Cordia Monoica Maasai Mara

Ol Seki

Ol Seki – Cordia monoica – the sandpaper tree and a symbol of peace.  The Maasai have many uses of the Ol Seki – edible fruit, useful timber for bows and special walking sticks used by elders during significant rites of passage.

Set on a wonderful rocky promontory, overlooking the sweeping Isupukiai River, our luxury seasonal Ol Seki Mara Camp enjoys panoramic views in a gorgeous wilderness area teeming with game. Eastern Koiyaki, north of the Mara, provides a rare opportunity to enjoy wildlife viewing, in a pristine setting. 

This oasis of inspired and beautifully designed tents is nestled amongst Cordia and Acacia  trees attracting an abundance of wildlife and birds, many of which are seen from the tents in the valley below. 

Elegant candle lit dinners, romantic dining for honeymooners, a resident masseuse – a delight for all senses!  With privacy in mind, the ambience of the traditional mobile safari camp has been extended to heights never dreamed of in this peaceful and magical setting. 

Accommodation

The simple modern architecture creates an exciting living space in the six light and roomy tents, each with a double and a single bed, crisp linen, thoughtfully designed lighting, a changing room and en suite hot showers and flush toilets.  Extra double tents to accommodate families, have breathtaking views and all are designed to meet environmental demands and complemented by the minimal and fine décor of the comfortable library and dining tents.  Indulge yourself in the luxury – live and breathe this space that is Africa!
