You are Here: › SEMADEP Camp

The Semadep Safari Camp is 2 kilometres from the Maasai Mara Game Reserve located near the Sekenani gate of the Masai mara National Reserve and run by the Sekenani Maasai community.

I visited Kenya and I wanted to learn more about the Maasai community. I wanted to have an authentic Maasai community experience.

The camp was set up by the Sekenani Maasai community as a way to raise funds for local community needs.

I was not disappointed in my experience. I spent 4 days with the Maasai learning about their lifestyle, their challenges and their culture.

They arranged a game drive in the Masai Mara where one of the Maasai tribe members accompanied me. I visited their local villages.

Tourists can stay in their tents which have comfortable beds and flash washrooms and showers. They prepared all of our meals and we were given a demonstration of their cultural dances.

If you want a cultural experience but also want to do game drives at the Masai Mara, this camp offers the best of both worlds.

Now getting to their camp is a bit of a challenge. I contacted the camp's leader, James.

Who was kind enough to meet me at Narok and then accompany me by matatu to his camp?

He said that he could send a taxi to Nairobi to meet us but we wanted to travel like the locals so he was kind enough to meets us and join us on the matatu.

Coming back he arranged for a taxi to drive us back to Narok where we then hopped on a shuttle back to Nairobi. Quite an unforgettable experience.
