Naboisho Camp, Mara Naboisho Conservancy
The Mara Naboisho Conservancy in southwest Kenya is a dream for wildlife enthusiasts. As well as cheetahs, elephants and giraffes, the area has one of the highest concentrations of lions in the world.
There are nine spacious tents at Naboisho Camp. And because it’s based in a private conservancy adjacent to the Masai Mara National Reserve, Naboisho is one of the best camps for your safari in the Mara, known for its amazing guiding. A safari here goes beyond the usual game drives. Explore the Mara on foot, keep your eyes peeled on a night drive or spend an unforgettable night camping in the bush for a real safari adventure. With 266 species of birds to spot, there are also ample birdwatching opportunities.
The camp is also home to one of our photographic safari vehicles, which has space for three photographers and one other guest. Capture eye-level images of the Mara’s photogenic lions and cheetahs and move around easily with 360° swivel seats and beanbags and foam camera rests to help the keen photographer take steady low-light shots.

The Naboisho Camp is a lovely area to spend some days on drives to see the beautiful animals, go on a bush walk with a professional bushman (we had Roelf who was great and very informative), throw seed balls out of the vehicle to plant trees, take a bucket shower, make purchases at the shop which sells the bead products made by the Maasai women from the area, enjoy the camp facilities and the delicious meals. Something fun for everyone. - Toinon88
What can I say that hasn't been said already?
In a holiday of highlights this was the ultimate highlight for both of us. We loved everything - the setting, the feeling of being properly 'on safari', the staff, the food, the room, the ambience...
On our last night we had a private dinner in the new pool house, which made for the perfect end to a perfect visit. We really didn't want to return to the hustle bustle of Nairobi!
And of course - the animals - large and small (do not miss the chance to walk out with one of the Lodge's managers who has a prolific knowledge of the African bush). - Panthea14
Had a two day stay in Naboisho - my second visit to the camp. This time we had tent 7 which is a short distance from the main area - beware of that if you are travelling with people who are less nimble.
The camp itself is beautiful and the tents very spacious with both indoor and outdoor shower.
As last time the food was really delicious and we enjoyed every bite of tender meat and fresh salad - I would say that Naboisho has one of the best chefs around.
Finally I would like to congratulate Naboisho on the fantastic new pool and lounge area. It blends in perfectly with the surroundings and the fact that you can actually have your fireside drink and your dinner there is great. Makes it possible to have a private dinner. I would say that the addition of the pool makes Naboisho the preferred lodge on Mara - as everything else in the camp has similar high standards.
Would highly recommend Naboisho and would love to come back soon again. - DorteS542
