Naboisho Camp

Set in the vast private Mara Naboisho Conservancy, Naboisho Camp offers spectacular game viewing from the herds of antelope that dot the plains of this wilderness corridor throughout the year to the high concentrations of predators, including lion and cheetah. The real magic of Naboisho Camp is its sheer exclusivity where you’ll experience a level of safari solitude and serenity simply unheard of in the busy Serengeti and Masai Mara reserves. With just nine spacious tented suites, Naboisho is an intimate and elegant safari camp that balances your wilderness experience with discreet creature comforts. Even better, Naboisho Camp offers the options of fly camping, walking safaris, and night drives which are activities not commonly available in most national parks. If you have a truly adventurous spirit, don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse yourself in the magic of the African bush.

Your very own, and first-ever, Asilia Photographic Safari Vehicle has arrived at Naboisho, able to accommodate 3 photographers (and their equipment) as well as 1 additional guest. This experience is not to be missed for avid photographers and brings you closer than ever, you’ll be at eye-level, or even lower, with the wildlife – allowing you to get that dream shot.

Bring your family to explore the real Africa with us – personal attention, guiding, accommodation and service are focused on creating a superb safari experience for the entire family. The African bush is the finest family playground you can imagine. Get right up close to the Big Five, hear lion roar, see thrilling natural spectacles and experience the world the way nature intended.

The nine generous tented suites offer comfortable king-sized beds (twin beds are available) and private facilities with indoor and outdoor hot running showers and flushing toilets. Each suite benefits from a private veranda furnished with a day bed – for the ultimate in post game-drive relaxation.

The Mara Naboisho Conservancy is not governed by the same rules as the national reserves, so there is the flexibility to see and experience something truly profound on safari at Naboisho. The activities at Naboisho Camp make the most of this unrivalled access to pristine wilderness: bush walks, off-road safaris, overnight fly camps, night drives and wilderness picnics are activities you could only dream of in the national reserves. The guides at Naboisho are adept at offering a deeper understanding of this complex ecosystem, making it an ideal choice for experienced safari travellers on their second or third visit to Africa, who are seeking a more profound experience.

Game Drives

Twice daily game drives with passionate and highly knowledgeable guides are offered from Naboisho, as well as the chance to search for the elusive nocturnal creatures of the conservancy on a night drive. Off-road driving is possible on the privately owned land for once-in-a-lifetime sightings and excellent photo opportunities. Our guides take you in seven-seater open game-viewing vehicles or closed vehicles that seat five. All the vehicles have power points where you can recharge your devices, and are fitted with fridges to keep your drinks deliciously frosty. Game Drives are also possible in the adjoining Masai Mara Reserve (additional costs apply).

Walking Safaris

Discover the smaller ecosystems that tend to pass unnoticed from a vehicle: explore the bush by foot, accompanied by an expert armed guide and Maasai tracker. Please note that walking safaris are at an additional cost of US$40 per person.

Bush Picnics

Leave camp with the rising sun at dawn and enjoy a packed breakfast or lunch to maximise your game-viewing time.

Fly Camping

Spend the night in a simple fly camp in a quiet corner of the conservancy and enjoy splendid meals cooked over the campfire with only the sounds of the bush for company. (at an additional cost)

Children’s Safari Program

Our bush guides are all family men who have themselves been raised on these plains. They share their childhood secrets, bush skills, animal tracking know-how, local folklore and incredible stories of life in the bush with your children during guided bush walks. Kids also get the chance to play traditional games and visit a nearby community or school to learn more about the customs of East Africa, make pen-pals and buy local handicrafts.

Cultural & Community Visits

Arrange a visit to one of the nearby Maasai villages to learn more about the magnificent culture that has defined this corner of Africa for centuries. Please note that cultural & community visits are at an additional cost of US$30 per person.

Research Projects

With Naboisho’s focus on conservation, a number of research programmes are conducted within the conservancy, and resident researchers can sometimes be available to share their exciting findings with guests in the camp.

Hot-air Balloon Safaris

This is a romantic and evocative way to experience the wilderness of East Africa. Nothing can beat the feeling of gliding silently over the game-filled plains on a balloon safari, as the early-morning sun rises over the horizon. (at an additional cost).

Photographic Safari

Calling all passionate photographers! Join us for a photographic safari experience in our very first modified photographic vehicle. The vehicle allows you to get low, eye level photographs. Beanbags, foam camera rest and 360º swivel seats promise to make your wildlife photography experience a dream!

Having successfully secured these community leases, the Mara Naboisho Conservancy is prime example of a tourism-turnaround story. With 210km² hectares under protection, the conservancy provides 142 direct jobs. The total area protected by the Mara conservancies together is 88 000km². Your conservancy fees provide the Maasai community with a sustainable livelihood and ensure the conservation of wildlife in this vital corridor of the Maasai Mara ecosystem.

In addition to the conservancy’s role in conservation it also provides steady and sustainable employment, which it is hoped will lead to an improved standard of living for the community as a whole. Furthermore, it offers additional benefits such as healthcare, clean energy and empowerment of the local people through education and skills training. Naboisho Camp itself is consciously low-impact: we aspire to leave behind nothing but footprints. Sustainable operations include recycling of rainwater and all waste products.
