Facility Notes Ol Seki Hemingways Mara is located in Naboisho Conservancy within the Mara ecosystem. The camp was established in 2005 and is currently operated by Hemingways Limited. It is uniquely built and blends in with the local environment. The facility consists of 10 double tents with a bed capacity of 20 guests and a total work force of 30 employees for its operations.
The Mara Naboisho Conservancy is a community conservation area measuring approximately 50,000 acres in size. Naboisho is a Maa word that means “coming together”. The Conservancy was established in the year 2010 when about 500 local individual Maasai landowners agreed to lease their land for 15 years to tourism investors. The aim was to conserve the land and wildlife, whilst simultaneously creating wealth for the landowners through tourism enterprises. The Conservancy is an integral part of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem, and provides critical wildlife dispersal area for migratory wildlife, including the wildebeest. The Mara portion of the larger Mara – Serengeti ecosystem supports approximately 92 species of mammals and about 400 species of local birds. It is the largest high altitude grassland in East Africa and hosts the largest population of the migratory Caspian Plover. The conservancy supports wildlife conservation through undertaking applied research studies to improve human-wildlife interactions. There are on-going study programs on lions, elephants and cheetahs.
Energy management The camp’s main source of power is provided by two (2) generators with power out of 40KvA each. They provide power for lighting and running electrical appliances.
