Naboisho Camp – Mara Conservancy

From: $335.00

Set in the 210km² 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 – you’ll experience a level of safari solitude and serenity simply unheard of in the busy Serengeti and Masai Mara reserves.

Description

Naboisho Camp

Naboisho Camp has just nine spacious tented suites. Activities on offer include fly camping, walking safaris, horse riding and night drives. These activities are 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 African bush.

Appealing both to safari purists and those seeking a little luxury, Naboisho Camp is the most upmarket of the handful of small, unfenced camps in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy. Surrounded by untouched savannah and dense thicket, it is located in a game-rich area that boasts spectacular wildlife events. Children over the age of 5 are welcome at Naboisho.

The first-ever Photographic Safari Vehicle at Naboisho is able to accommodate 3 photographers and their equipment. Its an experience not to be missed for avid photographers and brings you closer than ever. You’ll be at eye-level or lower with the wildlife – allowing you to get that dream shot.

The 200 sq km Mara Naboisho Conservancy is a groundbreaking tourism initiative that benefits both conservation and community. Spectacular game viewing combined with community interaction and the freedom to walk has made the Conservancy one of the most exciting destinations in Africa. In the heart of it all is Naboisho Camp offering exceptional safari experiences in this vast tract of pristine wilderness.

It’s a good idea to make the most of your visit to the Serengeti and the Masai Mara and we always recommend a good combination of lodges for your safari to Africa. Have a look at Rekero Camp or Encounter Mara Camp in the Naboisho Conservancy where you will find incredibly high lion densities.

Activities

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. 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.

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 Masai tracker.

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

Children’s safari programme
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 Masai villages to learn more about the magnificent culture that has defined this corner of Africa for centuries.

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
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! See more about our photographic safari vehicle.
