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.

Guest Tents
The nine generous tented suites offer comfortable king-sized beds (twin beds are available) and private facilities with indoor hot running showers, an outdoor bucket shower, and flushing toilets – plus a private veranda furnished with a day bed – for the ultimate in post-game-drive relaxation.

Family Tents

Game drives
Game drives happen twice per day: in the morning and again in the late afternoon. We can also stay out late to spot nocturnal animals and venture off-road. Our vehicles are seven-seaters with open sides or five-seaters with roofs that open so you can stand for a better view. All vehicles are fitted with power points and fridges, so we can comfortably cruise around the bush all day.

Night drives
A night safari gives guests the opportunity to spot animals that spend the day snoozing. Our vehicles are equipped with special spotlights that give you the thrilling experience of watching predators as they stalk their prey.

Walking safaris
There’s nothing like a walking safari for learning about the Mara ecosystem. A passionate and specially trained Asilia guide will lead a walk through the savannah, pausing to explain bird and animal behaviour, and how all the small things work together, from termites to dung beetles. (additional cost)

Fly camping
This is one of the most exciting activities Asilia has to offer and is perfect for those who want an intimate safari experience. Set out on a walking safari in the afternoon and spend a night fly camping in a remote part of the conservancy. We’ll cook dinner over a campfire under the stars and the sounds of the bush will lull you to sleep. We return to the main camp the next morning. (additional cost)

Cultural and community visits
Asilia can organise a trip to a nearby Maasai village, where you can meet our neighbours and learn about Maasai life. We take great care to plan these trips with sensitivity and respect for the local communities. (additional cost)

Children’s safari program
Our guides are great with kids. Many of them are parents themselves and love taking children on safari. They can teach them bush skills such as how to track animals, while telling Maasai folktales and stories about life in the Mara. We can plan games or visit a local school to meet future pen pals and learn more about Maasai culture.

Hot air ballooning
You won’t regret the early start when you find yourself sailing over the Mara plains as the sun peeks over the horizon. A hot-air balloon ride offers an incredible vantage point. From above, follow the river and glide over a confusion of wildebeest, journey of giraffes or dazzle of zebras. Balloon rides are at an additional cost and are subject to weather conditions. (additional cost)

Photographic safaris
Naboisho is home to one of Asilia’s specially modified photographic vehicles. The open vehicle allows keen amateurs and professional photographers alike to shoot at eye level with wildlife. It is equipped with all the gear to ensure award-winning shots — from beanbags and camera rests to 360° swivel seats. You can read more about the vehicle here. Please enquire to ensure availability of the vehicle and confirm any additional fees. (additional cost)

Research project
Due to the high concentration of wildlife, many research programmes are conducted in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy. Researchers sometimes visit camp and spend an evening with guests sharing their findings and experiences of working in the bush.

 

 

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.
