Naboisho Camp


In the far north of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem, adjacent to the famed Maasai Mara National Reserve, is the Mara Conservancy Area. Here you’ll find the outstanding Naboisho Camp, complete with a strong element of exclusivity. Only a very limited number of vehicles are allowed inside the park, operating from the small contingent of eight boutique camps only.

In 2023, Naboisho Camp has undergone a complete rebuild and refurbishment. It’s a stylishly designed haven, with nine elegant tents, two of which can sleep families, running water to provide you with a hot or cold showers, a central lodge with communal spaces, and a pool. Tasty food is served up in a communal setting, and evenings are spent around the campfire with your companions. Naboisho Camp is strongly involved in conservation and with community development projects. Authentic community interaction can be experienced by visitors through some of their guided excursions.

The conservancy has one of the highest concentrations of lion in the world, with other large predators present also including cheetah and wild dog. Acting as a corridor for both the north and south herbivore migrations between the Maasai Mara and the Loita Plains to the east, the conservancy has fantastic year-round game viewing. This is emphatically enhanced by its low tourist numbers. It is very rare to have more than four vehicles gathering to witness a kill, often finding that you are in fact the only vehicle present. For comparison, it is not uncommon to have twenty vehicles herding together and surrounding a kill or particular animal, in the Maasai Mara.


There is running water at the camp, with indoor and outdoor hot water showers and flushing toilets. Tents have an en suite bathroom, flushing toilet, private veranda and king-size bed / or twin set-up.

Additional services include a complimentary laundry service, Wi-Fi access, battery-charging facilities, and solar power with a backup generator.

Two of the tents are larger family tents, with a double and two singles in separate areas.

Naboisho Camp has access throughout for people with physical disabilities.
