Masai Mara
Naibor Tented Camp

This luxury tented camp extends along the wooded banks of the Talek River deep in the heard of the Maasi Mara.

With a choice of accommodation including spacious 2 bedroom tents, Naibor caters well for intrepid couples on varying budgets as well as families seeking the best chance possible of witnessing a renowned river crossing during the wildebeest migration which starts arriving from mid-July.

Facilities & Activities

Naibor offers an excellent range of activities in the depths of the Masai Mara, including game drives to spot the extraordinary concentration of wildlife in the reserve.  Being within a few minutes’ drive of the river, guests often make it first to see a river crossing and can then move in once the sighting becomes busy.  The best chance of witnessing this natural event is in late August / September, but the game does start arriving in some numbers from mid-July and can be seen through until the beginning of November, dependent on the timing of the rains.

Other activities include hot air ballooning and cultural visits to the local Masai communities as well as Bush walks into the heart of nature.

Back at Camp, The Lounge is the ideal spot to relax overlooking the river, you can even spot game from the comfort of your bean bag.  You can even enjoy a Spa treatment between activities, what a serene spot to experience a relaxing massage, but please note there’s no swimming pool.

Dining

The Dining Tent also makes for an ideal spot to enjoy your delicious meal under the shade of the riverine trees or gather around an atmospheric fire in the evening to share stories of your safari adventures with other guests and the Naibor team.  If you are looking to have private dining, do just ask, and a special spot will be arranged for you, no problem!

Rooms

Billowing, cream canvas tents complete with en-suite bathrooms welcome guests at Naibor, featuring carved fig wood furniture and feature Moroccan rugs.  All tents have en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and ‘his and her’ sinks and you’ll also have the opportunity to try a safari shower, with warm water supplied ‘off grid’! The accommodation is divided into 3 smaller camps, but facilities are inter-changeable if occupancies allow.

In Main Naibor, which incorporates 7 luxury tents, you’ll find chunky wood furniture and plump king-size mattresses and wide sofas.  Each of the 7 luxury tents includes a shady terrace from which you can watch the resident pod of hippo.

Little Naibor is located adjacent to Main Naibor, with two luxurious tents each having two en-suite bedrooms (one double and one twin) connected via a central lounge, so are ideal for small groups.  Private dining is also available here, with each tent also boasting their own fireplace overlooking the river.

Naibor Wilderness incorporates 3 double or twin tents with traditional wrought iron beds nestled in the bush, with each having a unique view of the surrounding riverine forest and those that make their home within it!  There’s also a private mess here, making it an ideal option for a small group or couple / solo traveller looking for accommodation at a slightly lower price point without compromising on location or service.

Family

Children from age 8 are welcome at Naibor (under this age is on request) – do note there are no barriers or fences so parental supervision will be required at all times.  Children also need to be age 12 and above to join Bush walks.

An additional bed can be placed in the tents at Main Naibor whilst the two-bedroom tents at Little Naibor are ideal for families (you needn’t book both!) and an extra bed can also be added to cater for families of 5.

The camp can provide early dinners for children and child minding if required, with advance notice.

Sustainability

Naibors’ aim is to assist in the preservation and improvement of living standards of the nearby Masai communities and their wildlife / environment.  This is achieved by recruiting staff from the nearby villages wherever possible and the local community also receives a direct contribution for every guest staying in the camp for social development projects.  Naibor also helps channel private investment and donations into micro-finance, health and education projects and the boutique promotes locally made Masai arts and crafts.  The camp also donates fuel each month to the Black Rhino Protection Unit and regularly supports a local cheetah project.

Solar power is also utilised in the camp.

Location

Naibor is located 250 km south of Nairobi, deep in the Masai Mara, on the banks of the Talek River, approx 2 km from the point where it flows into the Mara River, so a strategic position for witnessing a wildebeest river crossing during the migration.  The camps can be accessed by road in 4 – 5 hours from the City, although most guests fly in from Wilson domestic airport, a flight time of just under an hour, followed by a 20 minute road transfer to camp.
