Experience Naboisho on Foot
By Roelof Schutte – Naboisho Camp Manager and Experienced Walking Safari Guide
To celebrate 5 years of developing the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, we would like to highlight one of the special experiences you can enjoy whilst enjoying your safari.
There is no better way to experience the wilderness of East Africa up close and personal than on foot, and at Naboisho Campyou will find one of the best walking-safari guides on the continent.
Not only do we just see the wildlife, but we see these amazing animals, in a natural way, undisturbed, and in the most serene landscapes, coloured and lit up by the ever present African sun.” – Roelof Schutte
Roelof Schutte, Walking Guide and Camp Manager of the intimate nine-tent camp at Naboisho, has years of experience in tracking and exploring on foot which allows him to lead adventurous guests into pristine, but otherwise inaccessible, corners of the Mara Naboisho Conservancy. You get up close to herds of giraffe grazing lazily on the tops of the ever-present acacias, while a sudden halt could indicate the presence of lion nearby. Buffalo, elephant or topi are just a handful of the other species regularly encountered by guests during a walking safari.
About the area
There are amazing walking areas in the conservancy including short-grass plains, wide open spaces and some hidden valleys and positions too that will offer you an unparalleled and one-of-a-kind view into the lives of the wildlife that roam the plains. You might be so lucky as to see predators in action or even just spend some time with a herd of Elephant lazily snacking in the afternoon sun. You can also come across the local Maasai who herd their cattle in areas of the conservancy.

Each month the teams at Rekero Campand Naboisho Camp send out an update. In one of them, called ‘The Wonders of Walking Safaris’ Roelof explains the magic of exploring the bush up close and personal. Read the full article on our Asilia Blog.
