The Maasai Mara

The Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya is an area of 1 510 sq kms (150 000 hectares). It borders several private concession in the greater Mara and to the south in Tanzania it joins the Serengeti National park thus forming part of an unfenced wilderness of more than 2 million hectares. This vast ecosystem sets the stage for one of the worlds most incredible wildlife spectacles; The Great Migration. The vast, open landscape and overabundance of animals sets the standard of wildlife viewing in the Mara in a league of its own.

Wildlife

Waving grassland savannah strewn with isolated trees makes this the quintessential African landscape. The open landscape offers unobstructed wildlife viewing and visitors to the area are afforded the chance to enter the lives of the Mara’s inhabitants for a few days. White-bearded Wildebeest, Burchell’s Zebra, Thompson’s Gazelle and Eland form the core of the vast herd of 2 million animals that enters the Mara as part of the Great Migration. Resident predators such as Lion and Cheetah are equally visible while sightings of Leopard are not uncommon.

The Camp

Nestled in a much-desired location on the confluence of the Talek and Mara rivers is Naibor Wilderness camp. A private mess tent with light soft furnishings and spectacular views and three guests tents accommodating a maximum of only 6 guests makes up the entire camp. The camp is booked out exclusively and our guests do not share with anyone outside their own group.

Each guest tent is a private unit complete with shady verandah, his & hers wash basins, en-suite bathroom with flush toilet and safari shower, filled daily with hot water on request. The well spaced and private tents nestle amongst a riverine forest and are spaced so that each has a unique view of the surrounding bush and wildlife. The tents are furnished with solid, comfortable furniture so that you have the ultimate in camping-luxury to come back to after exciting game drives.

Vehicles.

You will spend up to eight hours a day in the vehicle pursuing wildlife action. Make sure it’s comfortable. The very spacious vehicles we use are all completely open-sided with drop down canvas sides in the event of rain. Only one photographer per row of seats ensures sufficient space for bulky camera gear and superior maneuverability. The roof can be opened allowing our guests the option to view and photograph from either position. Each vehicle is fitted with a fully stocked fridge and charging (photographers take note!) facilities are present in each car. All other amenities such as tissues, insect repellant, hand sanitizer and a fully stocked first aid kit is present in the vehicle.
