House of Waine

Location
Nairobi, Kenya

The House of Waine, located in the quiet residential suburb of Karen on the outskirts of Nairobi, offers an appealing alternative to standardized city hotels. Set on 2.5 beautifully manicured acres, it was originally built as a lavish private estate. Later acquired by a local family, the elegant property was carefully refurbished, resulting in the distinctive boutique hotel that exists today. The stately home offers guests an authentic experience of personalized African hospitality with uniquely designed rooms, modern amenities and traditional Kenyan charm. 

Its 11 en-suite bedrooms are individually styled and named, each furnished to reflect a distinct theme. Each room includes complimentary pastries and fresh-ground coffee delivered daily, a mini bar and Internet access. Luxurious marble bathrooms feature large windows and natural light. The House of Waine’s menus reflect Nairobi’s many local flavors. Meals are served in multiple locations including the dining room, terrace, garden, lounge and pool pavilion, offering memorable dining experiences amid the verdant lawns and gardens. Guests can also relax on the spacious patio and enjoy drinks poolside. The House of Waine is an easy 30-minute transfer from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and 20 minutes from Nairobi's domestic Wilson Airport.

Naboisho Camp

Location
Maasai Mara, Kenya

Secluded within the private 50,000-acre Mara Naboisho Conservancy, this intimate tented camp is surrounded by all the natural wonders of the Maasai Mara ecosystem without the crowds. The conservancy, established in 2011, is already making a name for itself as a place to experience the Mara’s spectacular wildlife in peaceful seclusion, and Naboisho is one of just a handful of camps located within its bounds. As a permanent camp, Naboisho allows for a coveted level of luxury in the wilderness. Its eight luxurious tented suites are set well apart from one another to ensure privacy. All have king-size beds, with large screened windows opening onto the sights and sounds of the Kenyan wilderness. En suite bathrooms have flush toilets and both indoor and outdoor bush showers. Each tent also has a private veranda with day bed for relaxing after game drives, and is attended by a personal butler.

The name Naboisho means “harmony,” and the camp’s design reflects a sensitivity to its natural environs, from low-impact canvas suites to the organic construction of the main lodge. Sustainable operations include recycling rainwater and all waste products.This thatched main area has wooden decks that provide an exciting vantage point over a watering hole. After a full day of the exciting wildlife viewing Naboisho is famed for, guests will enjoy the warm, personalized hospitality that is the camp’s hallmark, savoring dinners by the fireside and relaxing in the stylish lodge before turning in amid the lullaby sounds of the bush as you drift off to sleep. In addition to regular wildlife drives, guests staying at Naboisho Camp may also participate in guided bush walks and night drives, neither of which is permitted in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Naboisho and its guests support the local community by donating books and equipment to a local primary school through the Pack for a Purpose initiative.

Natural Habitat's Migration Base Camp–Maasai Mara

To sleep beneath canvas in the bush, under a Milky Way so thick with stars that it looks like clouds, listening for the roar of lions in the distance…there’s no more iconic safari experience!

Natural Habitat's Migration Base Camp–Maasai Mara

Location
Maasai Mara, Kenya

To sleep beneath canvas in the bush, under a Milky Way so thick with stars that it looks like clouds, listening for the roar of lions in the distance… there’s no more iconic safari experience! Yet while a remote tented camp may evoke the classic ambience of old, it doesn’t mean you sacrifice modern-day comforts. Natural Habitat's Migration Base Camp in the Maasai Mara is a most refined way to experience the African wilderness. We place the camp in the best wildlife-viewing areas, where seclusion amid raw nature prevails. Inside the deluxe tents, however, you’ll find full beds with quality bedding and attached en suite bathrooms—surprising comfort and privacy—and your own veranda with director’s chairs out front, shaded beneath a canvas awning. Kerosene lanterns lend an atmospheric glow at night. Evenings in camp are magical, with dinner served on a white tablecloth under the stars, and nightcaps around a roaring fire. If you want a safari straight 'Out of Africa,' you'll find it at our Migration Base Camp in the Mara. 

Our remote setting means we are far from tourist crowds, and we follow animals on our wildlife drives, not other Land Rovers. The Maasai Mara's herds and predators are legendary, and rightly so: perhaps Africa’s most famous safari destination, this vast tract of savanna in southwest Kenya is known for its great wildebeest migration, abundant lions and the rich culture of the Maasai people, traditional pastoral herders who have grazed cattle here for centuries. The Maasai Mara National Reserve is the northern part of Tanzania’s vast Serengeti ecosystem, centered on the Mara River, the lifeline for the region. The reserve’s 580 square miles are home to nearly 100 species of mammals and 570 recorded bird species, making wildlife viewing here impressive at any time of year. The migration, of course, is incomparable, when nearly two million wildebeest, zebra and Thomson’s gazelle move in long, flowing columns across the plains toward the new grass that comes with the rains. There is also a chance to see the classic Big Five—elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard. Cheetah, giraffe and varied antelope are also common sights.

Conservation of wildlife and the environment in Africa never happens apart from the people who live in and near fragile areas that need protection. In addition to supporting communities by virtue of our safaris, which offer direct economic benefit through our hiring of local staff and the purchase of local goods and supplies in the communities proximate to where we travel, our Natural Habitat Migration Base Camp also supports other regional projects to sustain local people and the environment.
