Newly established in Naboisho Conservancy. The newest camp opened in June 2011 consists of only six luxurious tented suites, tucked in between granite outcrops and trees with breathtaking views of the game filled dramatic valley below. Staying with us in Naboisho opens up a whole new area of the Mara to explore through game driving and/ or walking activities.
The camp is set on the Eastern side of the 50,000 acres conservancy in a beautiful secluded valley dotted with Acacia trees. The tents lie amongst the trees and rocky outcrops and enjoy wonderful views of the game filled plains to the south. The location is close to both the Enniskeria river region, with it’s stunning granite outcrops and permanent pools popular with the resident wildlife, and the vast plains to the north hosting large numbers of plains game and containing a vital elephant corridor to the North. The valleys to the west are stunning for game driving and particularly walking.
The area encompasses some of the most stunning terrain in the Masai Mara eco-system. The habitat of acacia woodlands, savannah grassland plains, riverine acacia forest and rocky hills provide a varied habitat for browsing and grazing herbivores along with hideout thickets for most predators. With strict controls on bed density and vehicle numbers a high quality wilderness experience is assured. The highest population of giraffe in the Mara are found in Naboisho, elephant herds frequent the area, three prides totalling 35 lions have been identified and three prides of another 30-35 lions move between the conservancy and Ol kinyei, Bardamat hills and the northern plains. Five leopard and three cheetah have also been identified by researchers. A large hippo pod and crocodiles occupy the hippo pool on the Eneskaria river. Eland and Buffalo visit the conservancy particularly during the wet season. Rare species such as Aardvark, caracal, serval cat, Aardwolf and Wild Dog are occasionally found and a black rhino appears from time to time. Naboisho is a bird watchers paradise, several bird species rarely seen elsewhere in the Mara such as white headed buffalo weavers, northern white-crowned shrike, pigmy falcon, Von-der Deckens hornbills, bush pipits are commonly seen.
