Great way to end our Safari Vacation
We spent 4 nights here following a 7 day safari and had a wonderful time. Our bungalow was #3 and had an upstairs loft with another bed and as all of them do, it faced the ocean. It was really wonderful to watch the local fishermen go out each day on their dhows, and see the octupus and squid fishermen at night along the reef. I was really amazed that the resort is really built right atop the coral! An unusal note - one night we heard sounds right outside our room and it turned out to be a herd of 10-12 cows strolling alogh the narrow path between our verandah and the cliff!
The food here was amazing, lots of fresh fish and local flavors. they also do theme nights and barbeques. My husband told them it was my birthday and they brought me a cake big enough for all the guests on our first night, and arranged for a private poolside dinner on our last night, very nice!
The staff are very attentive and accomodating, they took the time to get to know us and Management Russ and Maggie were very open friendly and helpful to us, always wanting to hear about our stay and offer advice.

The Perfect End to a Safari!
We spent 7 nights here after a 10 day safari across tanzania. Fantastic staff, really good and everpresent management, great views and a wonderful sense of relaxation. The hotel runs trips out to the small island opposite the beach for terrific snorkeling. The beach is very long and pretty clean and makes for great walks, we walked for hours!! The rooms are spacious and clean with all facilities and the restaurant excellent with wonderful staff. We would strongly recommend this hotel! The staff will make your stay delightful and nothing will be too much trouble for them."

I was fortunate to be able to spend 3 days in this paradise that is Naboisho camp. I can say that I was very well treated on days we stayed in this camp, everything was perfect, beautifully decorated tent, super nice lounge, the tasty meals, a call out of the ordinary where unique and special attention is given to each tent occupant by everyone from the manager to the Maasai warriors. I totally recommend to stay in this camp, I loved the Walking Safari which was a great experience along with Roelf which is an extremely skilled professional and provides total security and peace of mind for participants in this type of game where you can be in more intimate interaction of animals and their home. The manager Moses was really helpful providing us with various information and allowing total enchantment with the region and with nature. Helen, the manager, assured a flawless dinner on our marriage anniversary which was unforgettable. There is a great shop with good prices of original products from the Maasai, we recommend that you buy these because it is not easy to find this kind of product in Africa. The night drive was good but the games during the day and the picnic were more interesting because the place is fabulous. Stay in Naboisho and in the sequence go to Rekero because you will be making the best choice and perfect combination! Lucas and Bejamim formed a perfect team with a high level of knowledge not only of the region but also the fauna and flora. Perfect camp!!!"

Love Topi House!
We had a great six night stay at Asilia's Topi House (third time for us) this February 2014.. The staff is superb. Many thanks to the world's greatest guide Salaash and the staff - Nabaala, Leonard and James for a perfect visit. Food, service and guiding were great and the house is wonderful. You are right out in the wilderness with game nearby. You have the whole house to yourself and whomever you have traveled with and your own driver/guide as well. We came back the third time and are booked for a fourth next year!"

Exceeded All Expectations!
My wife and I were going to Nairobi for a business meeting and had three days available for a vacation on this our first visit to Africa. After much online research we ending up choosing Naboisho Camp and were extremely happy with the decision.
My wife is vegetarian and they cooked a special – and tasty – main course for her for every meal without making it seem like it was extra work. The walking safari was the highlight for me. Getting close to the ground and learning about the interactions between animals, insects and plants was excellent. It was incredible to just walk through the land and encounter animals at their level and without vehicle sounds. The staff, hosts and even the management of the company – in camp for a visit – demonstrated that they care about the health of the conservancy, the local people and the animals. They are leaders in responsible tourism in the area.They bill themselves as a small luxury safari tented camp with personal service and deliver on it with everything they did. As long as you understand what the accommodations are then you will have a great time. I could not find fault with any part of the stay and never felt service was insincere. We would spend the money again. I hope to return in the future and have already recommended it to family members."

Stayed 3 nightts in this camp and it was simply fantastic! The service that I got from everyone in the camp was exceptional! Food was brilliant and sitting round the fire for pre-dinner drinks etc was just out of this world! The last night I was there the camp was besieged with wilderbeest the entire night! Absolutely brilliant! I loved every minute of it. The tent was amazing and I just loved the walkie talkie to let the staff know that you were ready for your shower! It was absolutely great and I was really sorry to leave!"

Topi House - Well Worth a Visit!
We have just come back from another stay at Topi House and we were very impressed again. The whole team at Topi House made us feel very special and were extremely helpful and friendly. The accommodation is first rate and the food exceptional. Our guide Fred was very knowledgeable and we saw a vast amount of wildlife including lions, cheetahs, leopards, elephants and many more. One of favourites was the banded mongoose, which we had never got close to before. Even saw migrating pelicans. If you want something special then go to Topi House!"

Memories for a lifetime!
The one word that comes to mind to describe David and his staff is "Exceptional"! Throughout my wife’s and my entire 3 night (4 day) stay in February 2014, every detail was taken care of – we wanted for nothing. The foods prepared for each meal were absolutely delicious. Our tent was spacious and the huge bed very comfortable with a wonderfully warm hot water bottle placed under the sheets each night.
Our guide Makubi, was outstanding.- totally knowledgable about the game we were viewing and giving us a wonderful experience of a Cheetah jumping up onto the hood of our opened topped Landrover and staying with us for almost 30 minutes - to the envy of all of the other vehicles that were around us!"

This is one camp that you need to include in your itinerary for the Serengeti. The whole experience is just something that I will remember for a long time. From the moment you arrive you feel at home and the people really care about you. Everything were carefully explained, from the showers to the walkie talkie. Joseph that filled our buckets for the showers every night was a star. The tent is huge and the bathroom section has everything that you will find in a chalet. It was wonderful going to bed each night with the unspoilt view of thesurroundings."

My family (husband and 2 boys) visited Naboisho about 2 weeks ago and if there were more than 5 stars this camp deserves it! Helen and Roelof are amazing hosts; thinking of all of the things that would make this a special experience. Our guides, Daniel and Lucas, were so engaging with us and our boys (age 10 & 13). All of the staff, especially Moses, Albert and Johnson, were very fun to be with and played games, shot arrows and made fire with our boys. I am pretty sure Daniel is magic because we saw every animal we wanted on our drives including a cheetah take down a grand gazelle and some elder lions "kicking out" the young lions so they can find their own pride. Epic! I cannot recommend this camp and the wonderful people enough!"
