Average time to visit
The only time to avoid Kenya is during the long rainy season in April and May. November is considered the short rainy season, however, these are less predictable and are much lighter. The best time of year to visit the Maasai Mara is during the Great Wildebeest Migration which tends to pass through the Mara between mid July to late October.
To start planning your holiday to Naboisho Camp
Naboisho Camp is a small camp with just eight tented rooms, located in the game rich Naboisho Conservancy area adjacent to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. A perfect place to witness the great wildebeest migration while staying in an authentic bush camp.
Naboisho Camp is situated in the Naboisho Conservancy (a 50,000 acre area) that lies to the far east of the Mara/Serengeti eco-system - an area almost half the size of the Maasai Mara reserve. The camp is set amongst the trees and rocky outcrops, with stunning views out to the plains.
The Mara Naboisho Conservancy is one of the most unspoilt and game rich areas in Kenya. ‘Naboisho’ means ‘coming together’ in local Maasai language. And rightfully so; the Mara Naboisho Conservancy is where tourism successfully meets spectacular wildlife and the great warrior tribes.
Naboisho is a permanent camp, but leaving the smallest footprint possible. However, there is no compromise on comfort. The eight comfortable tents have a traditional bush style with a fresh modern feel. There are en-suite bathrooms to the tents with flush loos, running water and bucket showers.
Naboisho camp prides themselves on a high level of service with a warm and friendly atmosphere and great food. The Camp is run by a management that gives priority to conservation and environment and you can see this throughout the entire set up. The conservancy was the first in Kenya to provide direct income to individual Maasai landowners, each getting a monthly income dependent on how much land they contributed. You can stay here safe in the knowledge that you are helping to aid both the community and the wildlife conservation project.
There are eight tented rooms at Naibosho Camp. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with a bucket shower and flush loo. The tents are furnished with comfortable king sized beds. The large screen windows provide you with sights and sounds of the spectacular Kenyan wildlife.
There are several activities which guests can embark on during their stay at Naboisho Camp. From camp, guests can explore the area by game drive, walking or night drives. A fantastic way to enjoy a break from your game viewing is to have a delicious bush picnic. For the adventurous, we suggest spending a night under the stars fly camping.

Game drives in the Maasai Mara
Exploring this iconic ecosystem in an adapted, open 4x4 safari vehicle with your professional safari guide is one of the best ways to get up close to the huge volume and wide diversity of wildlife in the Mara.
Maasai Mara Balloon Safari
Experience the magic of floating over the plains of the Maasai Mara in a Hot Air Balloon. Balloon safaris are a fantastic way to experience the vast beauty of the Mara and provide exceptional photo opportunities with spectacular lighting and scenery.
Private Safari Guide and Game Drive Vehicle
Ensure an exclusive and totally tailored safari experience by booking a private safari guide and game drive vehicle. A private guide gives you the flexibility to go where you want, when you want. If you have specific interests this is an absolute must.
Riding in Maasai Mara
Horseback safaris are the most exciting way to see the bush and in Kenya they are without a doubt the most exciting and adventurous safari you can do.
The Great Migration
The Maasai Mara is famous for being home to one of nature’s most spectacular events: the Great Migration. Millions of wildebeest cross from Tanzania’s Serengeti to Kenya’s Mara in search of better grazing.
Walking in the Maasai Mara
Exploring the African bush from outside a safari vehicle is a wonderful experience. Get away from the noise of the 4x4 and, accompanied by your professional safari guide, begin to pick up on the smaller details of the African bush.
