Asilia Africa Naboisho Camp refurbishment opening in June 2023.
Naboisha Camp is designed to be as open as possible, taking full advantage of the Mara surroundings. Spot Zebra or impala from it’s thatched -roof main lounge and dining area or swimming pool and dine with the sights and sounds of the bush as your entertainment, be it whoops of hyenas at night or the fluttering of weaver birds in the morning.
The Naboisho Conservancy is one of Africa’s finest examples of tourism, community and conservation working in true partnership to ensure each thrives. As the conservancy evolves so to has Naboisha Camp, which is currently undergoing a full refurbishment and will be ready for the new season ahead.
The nine guest tents have been rebuilt to create a heightened sense of space and luxury without losing the soul of the camp. Spacious bathrooms include thoughtful design features to frame a view right through the Naboisho valley from the solar-heated outdoor shower.
The family tents have been fully redesigned to create two spacious family suites, with two ensuite bathrooms connected by a central lounge area, idea for families or couples travelling together alike.
The camp’s central lounge and dining space is being rebuilt with even more options for indoor/outdoor living.
The food and drinks will be elevated aswell with the same warmth of hospitality guests are accustomed to from Asilia camps, along with excellence in guiding, to make sure every guest has an exceptional safari stay.
The Mara Naboisho Conservancy in Southwest Kenya is a dream for wildlife enthusiasts. As well as cheetahs, elephants and giraffes, the area has one of the highest concentrations of lions in the world. Game drives happen twice per day: in the morning and again in the late afternoon. You can also stay out late to spot nocturnal animals and venture off-road. The vehicles are seven seaters with open sides or five seaters with roofs that open so you can stand for a better view. Or if you prefer getting up and close to nature there are walking safaris where you will learn about the Mara ecosystem. A trained Asilia guide will lead a walk through the savannah, pausing to explain bird and animal behaviour, and how all the small things work together, from termites to dung beetles.
Naboisho is home to one of Asilia’s specially modified photographic vehicles. The open vehicle allows keen amateurs and professional photographers alike to shoot at eye level with wildlife. It is equipped with all the gear to ensure award winning shots.
Other experiences on offer at Naboisho are Hot air-ballon rides which can offer an incredible vantage point, a very special way to view the migration. Or you may like to immerse yourself in the local community and take a trip to a nearby Masai village, where you can meet the local people and learn about Masai life and their culture. If you have children this is also a wonderful opportunity for them to see the local school, maybe meet future pen pals and also learn about the Masai culture.
