NAIBOR CAMP

Naibor Camp is a luxury tented camp in the heart of Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve.

Since Naibor Camp is in the heart of the Masai Mara National Reserve, guests are able to enjoy fabulous wildlife viewing throughout the year. Naibor is also strategically placed for the annual Wildebeest Migration, being close to all the major wildebeest crossing sites over the Mara River.

Naibor Camp is hidden in a grove of riverine woodland on the banks of the Talek River and consists of sweeping pale canvas tents, king sized beds made from local fig-wood, wide sofas furnished with bolster cushions, and wool rugs - a luxurious base from which to explore the Mara.

Accommodation at Naibor Camp consist of 7 luxury tents, each a private unit with shady verandah, his & hers wash basins, en-suite bathroom with flush toilet and safari shower. The tents are all carefully positioned amongst the trees so that each can enjoy the surrounding woodland in complete privacy.

Dining and relaxing usually takes place in the main 'Mess Tent' or under the shade of the adjacent trees, ideally located overlooking a wide bend of the Talek river. Comfortable floor-cushions, rugs and sofas invite the weary to relax and enjoy the sounds of the wilderness. The evening camp-fire provides a welcome spot for pre-dinner drinks after a day of wildlife viewing. Meals are made from the finest fresh ingredients prepared by our experienced chefs. Dinner is usually enjoyed at the long banquet table, whilst breakfast and lunch may be under the shade of the surrounding trees whilst watching the resident pod of hippos.

The main focus at Naibor Camp is to drive out from camp daily to observe and photograph the extraordinary concentrations of wildlife. The Naibor vehicles are all 4wheel drive Toyota Land Cruisers, open sided with canvas tops, built in fridges; with ice cold drinks available any time. These are ideal for observing and photographing the wildlife, and for getting around in the sometimes difficult conditions characteristic of the Mara habitat. We suggest early morning and late afternoon game drives, as it is during these times when it is generally cooler that the wildlife is more active. However, if guests prefer they can also do an all day game drive with a picnic lunch (this is popular during the migration season).

Bush meals and sundowners are popular, and are often enjoyed in conjunction with a game drive extra activity. Our 'Out of Africa' style bush meals are set up for any number of people in a private exclusive location. Bush breakfasts and packed lunches can all be arranged. Sundowner cocktails are a popular way to enjoy the end of the day.

Cultural visits to the nearby Masai communities just outside the reserve can also be arranged. You can visit one of their villages, observe traditional dances and interact with these very traditional people.

Hot Air Ballooning can also be arranged for guests at Naibor Camp. This involves an early morning wakeup to get to the balloon launch site for 6.00am, a flight of approximately 1.5hrs over the grasslands teeming with wildlife, champagne breakfast on landing and game drive back to Naibor Camp.
