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.

Little Naibor is a beautiful camp right in the heart of Kenya's Maasai Mara, perfectly placed to view the incredible spectacle of the migration. With just two suites, each with two bedrooms, the camp is perfect for exclusive use for families or friends.
Little Naibor brings the level of luxury camping in the Maasai Mara to a whole new level with an exclusive camp, situated close to its sister-camp Naibor but with high levels of personal service and attention to detail.
Much smaller than Naibor Camp but still located close by, Little Naibor is made up of two spacious suites which are uniquely designed to blend in effortlessly with the surrounding riverine forest. Each tent contains two double or twin rooms both en-suite with their own spacious bathrooms, inter-connected by a communal lounge and dining area. A dedicated team of staff caters to your every need, and are always on hand to look after you.
Both of these stunning tents have their own private bar and fire places set up strategically along the Talek River with complete privacy and spectacular views. Meals can be a convivial or private affair, and ingredients are fresh and delicious, originally prepared.
The highlight here is the spectacular game viewing which can be found in the Maasai Mara - home of the wildebeest migration, this is easily reached from the camp and can practically be viewed from your tent! Expect spectacular numbers of game and some mighty clashes with predators, and exciting river crossings.
With your own private guide and vehicle with your suite at Little Naibor - it is perfect for a family looking to have total flexibility on game drives. You can go for as long or short as you want and meals can be entirely flexible too.
Little Naibor can be booked and used as an exclusive private camp for up to eight people.
The rooms at Little Naibor are stunning, comprising two enormous airy tented suites decorated in muted shades of cream and ecru. The whole effect is one of soothing tranquillity. Each suite has two bedrooms and is thus perfect for families or groups of friends travelling together. The camp is able to be booked on an exclusive use basis.
The main focus at Naibor is to drive out from camp daily to observe and photograph the extraordinary concentrations of wildlife. The Naibor vehicles are all 4x 4 wheel drive Toyota Land Cruisers, open sided with canvas tops. The Naibor driver/guides are all knowledgeable and professional, and have attained minimum guiding accreditation at the KPSGA Bronze level. A hot air balloon trip can be arranged for an early morning flight over the Maasai Mara.
