Naboisho Camp is designed to be as open as possible, taking full advantage of the Mara surroundings. Spot zebra or impala from its thatched-roof main lounge and dining area or swimming pool and dine with the sights and sounds of the bush as your entertainment, be it the whoops of hyenas at night or the fluttering of weaver birds in the morning. You’ll be taken care of by our warm and hospitable team, all are highly experienced and have worked together for years.
A typical day on safari
Game drives head out in the early morning and late afternoon when the temperatures are cooler and animals, especially predators, are more active. The exact times differ with the seasons. If you have opted for a private vehicle, you can decide on your schedule, but the below is a good example of what to expect.
Generally, you'll start your day bright and early with a wake-up call and tea or coffee. Enjoy breakfast before you depart for your morning game drive (or have it packed as a picnic to take along). You'll arrive back in camp mid-morning, with a chance to freshen up before lunch.
After a leisurely lunch, enjoy siesta time. Read a book, take a swim or just relax and enjoy the views. Refuel with an afternoon tea before departing for an afternoon/evening game drive with sundowners. You'll be back in time for drinks and dinner – the perfect chance to unwind after a long day in the bush.
The Mara ecosystem is rich in wildlife and the Mara Naboisho Conservancy has one of the highest concentrations of lions and cheetahs in Africa.
Naboisho also has one of the highest lion densities in Africa, with plenty of other game to view, such as elephants, giraffes and zebras. There’s even a lesser-known wildebeest migration ; the Loita Migration sees thousands of wildebeest and zebras pass through the conservancy between the Mara Reserve and Loita Plains.
Naboisho Camp has nine spacious tents, each with king-sized or twin beds, indoor and outdoor hot-water showers and a flushing toilet. Each tent has a daybed, an inviting spot for an afternoon snooze in between game drives.
Asilia is a founding member of the 20,234-hectare Mara Naboisho Conservancy. Situated in the far north of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem, this is one of several nonprofit conservancies around the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve. These conservancies are partnerships between the Maasai and tourism operators such as Asilia. Tourism fees go toward management of each conservancy and the Maasai landowners’ lease payments. Naboisho is one of just eight boutique camps in the Mara Naboisho conservancy, making this safari experience extra special.
Meals and refreshments
Meals are usually taken communally, allowing you to get to know other guests and learn more about the Mara from your hosts. Our kitchen team prepares everything in-camp, including freshly baked breads and pastries. Breakfast is a continental spread or a full English. For lunch, guests can relax over a light meal with fresh salad and vegetables or we can pack a picnic to enjoy out in the bush. Late afternoon means time for tea. Dinner is a relaxed, three-course affair.
We can cater to most dietary requirements and allergies. Please just let us know ahead of your arrival.
