Description of Kenya safari and Diani beach holiday

This luxury Kenya safari and beach holiday really captures two of the most stunning aspects of the country, starting from the moment you take a flight out over the Rift Valley to arrive at Mara Naboisho Conservancy. This is a community owned conservancy set up in partnership with indigenous Maasai people who have also trained extensively, with the Koiyaki Guiding School, to be exemplary safari leader guides.

The first five days of this tailor made holiday are spent at the wildlife conservancy, enjoying a mixture of walking safaris and game drives as well as the environs of this stunning six tent campsite, called Leopard Hill. Indeed, your wildlife viewing experiences may include the great leopard, as well as elephant, lion and zebra, to name but a few. These tents have features such as private bathtubs overlooking the savannah, so you have the best view in the world as you chill out, a sundowner in hand perhaps. The tent roofs even open up so that you can see the array of stars all around at night. We really do think that these unique tents are stunners, designed to reflect the traditional Maasai homes in nearby manyattas, which you will also visit for a wonderful cultural exchange as part of the trip.

The final four days of this Kenya holiday are spent at Diani Beach, just south of Mombasa City which you will access by air. With white beaches, coral reef, dolphin watching and tropical islands to visit such as Wasini, this really is Kenyan beach bliss.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Kenya safari and Diani beach holiday

Environment

We run on solar power with a backup generator for those times of no sunlight and a booster system for water heating fueled by Eco briquettes made from waste. We use energy saving bulbs, recycle our organic waste on site in a series of composting pits, and plastic and tins are sent back to Nairobi for recycling. All waste water is collected and used in our tree plantation. Our strategic Environmental best practice includes creation of Conservation Partnerships through developing local management models that help safeguard ecosystems through long-term tourism partnerships and concentrating on activities that mobilize the community towards offsetting of carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere through active participation in tree planting and Afforestation initiatives.

Eagle View in Mara Naboisho was constructed from local materials, running on solar, hot water & energy systems with a back up generator, energy saving bulbs and the recycling of non-organic waste. All plastic is collected and transported for off-site recycling. Bio-degradable waste is converted to compost for our vegetable garden. Leave a positive footprint and reduce your carbon footprint by planting a tree in our tree plantation.

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: we promote better trading options for a women’s group from the local Maasai 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.
