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.
