Koiyaki Guiding School

Koyaki Guiding School trains local Masai in the skills of conservation and wildlife management, teaching them how to benefit from tourism opportunities. It also teaches local people why conservation is beneficial to the community as well as showing them how to protect wildlife and its habitat and develop harmony between wildlife and agriculture. Our camping and conservancy fees, along with direct donations to the school, have generated an income for the community. We often host donors and lecturers at Ol Seki for no charge and we’ve contributed to a botanical garden at the school, planted with succulents (water-storing plants). We also support the school by offering work experience to students during their holidays and our guides give them additional advice and practical training as part of their attachment at Ol Seki. The first female graduate of Koyaki Guiding School, Betty Maitai, now works in our team of wildlife guides.

Ol Seki Hemingways Mara builds a new infinity swimming pool

As the season begins to come to an end and the rains start arriving in the Masai Mara, it’s time for us at Ol Seki Hemingways Mara to take a little break and start our annual maintenance projects. You’ll recall last year we invested significantly in the back of house operations of the camp including installing a new solar power farm to completely remove the camp from grid and electricity power. This has been a huge success and has been extremely well received by our guests. We also built a new kitchen and we are delighted to see the improvement in our cuisine which has resulted from the improved kitchen facility. This year we’re looking at the front of house and the guest experience and to that end, we’re extremely excited to publicise, for the first time, some detailed information about our new pool which we have been promising.
