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. Leave camp with the rising sun at dawn and enjoy a packed breakfast or lunch to maximise your game-viewing time.
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.
Our bush guides are all family men who have themselves been raised on these plains. They share their childhood secrets, bush skills, animal tracking know-how, local folklore and incredible stories of life in the bush with your children during guided bush walks. Kids also get the chance to play traditional games and visit a nearby community or school to learn more about the customs of East Africa, make pen-pals and buy local handicrafts.
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. Spend the night in a simple fly camp in a quiet corner of the conservancy and enjoy splendid meals cooked over the campfire with only the sounds of the bush for company.
Twice daily game drives with passionate and highly knowledgeable guides are offered from Naboisho, as well as the chance to search for the elusive nocturnal creatures of the conservancy on a night drive. Off-road driving is possible on the privately owned land for once-in-a-lifetime sightings and excellent photo opportunities. Our guides take you in seven-seater open game-viewing vehicles or closed vehicles that seat five. All the vehicles have power points where you can recharge your devices, and are fitted with fridges to keep your drinks deliciously frosty.
Night Game Drives
There’s also the opportunity to see some of Kenya’s famous ‘nightlife’, with unforgettable night drives permitted within the conservancy. Night game drives have to be booked and are done in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, and although excursions to the adjoining Maasai Mara National Reserve are often conducted you’ll relish the freedom within the conservancy.
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.
Discover the smaller ecosystems that tend to pass unnoticed from a vehicle: explore the bush by foot, accompanied by an expert armed guide and Maasai tracker.
