Description of 9 day safari in Kenya

This amazing safari in Kenya invites nine tailor made days of wildlife watching bliss. This is your chance to check into a wilderness camp in Mara Naboisho Conservancy before going walkabout in the African bush en-route to a riverside campsite overlooking Masai Mara National Park.

As a gold-rated eco-camp – one of only three in the whole of Kenya – you can rest assured that every effort has been made to provide as respectful and authentic an experience as possible. Nearly all of the campsite team are from the local Maasai community and by joining a local Maasai guide you’ll be treated to an intimate and sensitive perspective of life in the African bush.

Alongside opportunities to meet local people, on their level, and learn more about responsible tourism projects, you’ll also embark on some of the most exciting game drives on the planet. Lions, leopards, giraffes, elephants, wildebeest and zebras can all be found in Mara Naboisho and Masai Mara National Parks with campsites close to watering holes ensuring front row seats at sunset.

Nocturnal game drives, tales around the campfire, star-gazing and sun downers ensure every day is alive with possibilities. Horse riding, guided walks and yoga options, too, allow life in Kenya to evolve from whole new angles. If you’re looking to tailor a safari in Kenya that blends cultural enlightenment with exciting activities then right here’s where your Africa adventure begins to unfold.

Responsible tourism: 9 day safari in Kenya

Environment

We are 1 of only 3 gold eco-rated camps in the whole of Kenya and as such we conform to a very high eco standard. We run on solar power with a backup generator for those times of no sunlight, & a booster system for water heating fuelled by eco briquettes made from waste, we use energy saving bulbs, recycle our waste, organic on site in a series of composting pits, plastic & tins are sent back to Nairobi for recycling, we have eco composting toilets whereby the liquid waste & all waste water is collected then used in our tree plantation.

Our travellers are in the vehicles under the guidance of our driver guides who keep them a safe distance from the wildlife, when walking they are thoroughly briefed on all aspects of the activity, behaviour to adopt & safety.

We grow some of our own vegetables & herbs and source some at the local market but items like meat come from Nairobi due to the health standards required. All plastic is collected and transported for off-site recycling. Bio-degradable waste is converted to compost for our vegetable garden.

We encourage guests to leave a positive footprint and reduce your carbon footprint by planting a tree in our tree plantation.

Over 95% of camp staff are from the local Maasai community therefore your holiday empowers and enriches the community within which we operate our camps. Guests are able to choose to sponsor students & our foundation supports the guiding school through bursaries.

Community

Over 95% of camp staff are from the local Maasai community therefore your holiday empowers and enriches the community within which we operate our camps. The local community receive income from tourism activities in the Mara Talek and Mara Naboisho Conservancies.

Fair-trade: our promotes women groups from the local community in developing and retailing exquisite beaded and leather merchandise. Purchase a product from our gift shops and receive a personalized message from the woman who designed the merchandise. We promote empowerment and awareness through scholarships in local schools and the Koiyaki Guiding School (the only guiding school in Mara).

Our long history of close co-operation with the Maasai community distinguishes us from other tourism operators in Masai Mara. Our mutual bond climaxed in 2010 when we successfully established the community owned nature conservancy (Naboisho Conservancy), named after the Maa expression of ‘coming together’, chosen by the Maasai to epitomize how the Maasai community came together to face the alarming issue of decreasing land. By establishing a community owned nature conservancy, we provided the Maasai with an alternative to selling their land to outsiders and helped protect vital wildlife territory.
