This was the most luxurious camp of the three Asilia Camps we stayed at, in July 2014. We had tent number 9 (formally tent number 8), it was the furthest from the main camp which made it very private and had a lovely outlook over the plains. The normal camp managers were on leave during our stay and we were in the capable hands of Kim and Conway. Kim hosted the lunches and dinners; and hearing about my taste for Amarula encouraged further exploration.
The accommodation is very spacious including an indoor and a private dual outdoor shower. We had an airline restriction of 15 kilos each including hand luggage! This made for interesting packing as our Camera equipment was fairly heavy, however it was easy to see that Naboisho Camp staff had considered this and provided us with many of the little necessities and luxuries we might need. You could have as many showers as you wished and same day laundry service. Hot water bottles were supplied in your bed at night and also in your open vehicle during the cold and windy early morning game drives. Staff here had a can do attitude which was very welcoming and reassuring.
Charging of equipment was carried out at the main camp lounge. Meals were excellent and staff went out of their way to cater to individual dietary preferences if needed.
The guides were excellent- Ben and spotter Rakita (from BBC claim to fame), made every effort to find us the elusive leopard we didn’t see at our previous camp. We spent time looking at animal behaviours such as watching lions feeding on a kill. In addition to game viewing, we learnt more about Bens’ culture and upbringing which opened our eyes more to the Kenyan people. Our previous camp was in the Mara and was full of animals in the midst of the migration, wildlife here did not appear to be as prolific. However there was a very healthy lion population and many newborn animals were seen. We were able to experience night game viewing but unfortunately Roelof was on leave, and we missed out on his walking safari. Overall our stay at Naboisho Camp was a wonderful experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in the 210 km² private Mara Naboisho Conservancy, Naboisho Camp offers spectacular game viewing, from the herds of antelope that dot the plains of this wilderness corridor throughout the year to the high concentrations of predators, including lion and cheetah.

With just nine spacious tented suites, Naboisho is an intimate and elegant safari camp that balances your wilderness experience with discreet creature comforts. Even better, it is one of just two Asilia camps where you have the option of fly camping. If you have a truly adventurous spirit, don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse yourself in the magic of the African bush. ... more less
