Sekenani Camp was established in 1989 by Jean Marie Sabin and Nick Wood. It began very simply. In those days the tents were on the ground and bathroom facilities were rudimentary. At night the camp was lit by hurricane lamps. In 1992 the transformation to a luxury camp began. The tents were raised onto platforms with wooden floors and full-length bathtubs were installed in each tent. These were the first tents with bathtubs to be constructed in Kenya. A generator was added to provide electricity. The camp has continued to evolve over the years.
The land upon which the camp sits belongs to 26 Maasai families from the local area. Together they formed the Isokon Group. As landlords they collect an annual rent and a fee for each guest that sleeps in the camp.
