Activities at Naboisho Camp
Bush Breakfasts & Picnics
For those keen to get in some early game viewing or maximize their time watching game our camp chef can prepare a delicious packed breakfast or lunch.
Naboisho Camp’s guides are mostly drawn from local Maasai communities, allowing you a unique insight into the rich culture that defines this corner of East Africa. Naboisho guides are always eager to share their culture with interested guests, and visits to nearby communities and homesteads are easily arranged.
Naboisho means ‘harmony’, and there is no better place to embrace quality time with your family. Stylish and exclusive, Naboisho welcomes families with children of all ages. Families sleep in 2 superb family tents (each comprises of 2 inter-leading tents) with en-suite facilities. Expert guides lead the family on bush walks, game drives (by day and night), wilderness excursions and cultural visits to nearby Maasai villages. Naboisho offers an unparalleled family safari experience.
Fly & Bush Camping
If you can’t bear to drag yourself away when the sun sets over the distant Mara plains, overnight ‘fly’ camping is also possible with comfortable dome tents erected in a quiet corner of the conservancy, and all the comforts of the main camp laid on by our enthusiastic guides.
Game drives within the Mara Naboisho Conservancy are offered twice per day, and although excursions to the adjoining Maasai Mara National Reserve are often conducted you’ll relish the freedom within the conservancy.
Interpretive Bush Walk
In between morning and afternoon game drives explore the sights, smells and sounds of the African bush on a leisurely 1-2 hour walk in the surrounds of the Camp, accompanied by an armed guide and Maasai tracker.
Night Game Drives
There’s also the opportunity to see some of Kenya’s famous ‘nightlife’, with unforgettable night drives permitted within the conservancy.
Off-road Game Drives
Here, on privately owned land, guides and guests have more liberty to explore: off-road driving is permitted to track down once-in-a-lifetime sightings, while bush picnics and sundowner drinks make for memorable moments in the heart of the East African bush.
With Naboisho’s focus on conservation, a number of wildlife research programmes are conducted within the conservancy, and researchers in residence are often available to share their exciting findings with guests.
There is no better way to experience the wilderness of East Africa than on foot, and at Naboisho Camp you’ll find one of the best walking-safari guides on the continent.
Roelof Schutte, who is also the manager of this intimate eight-tent camp, 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’ll 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 exploring on foot.
