Naibor Camp

Masai Mara Amboseli & the South

Rating: Deluxe    

Naibor Camp overview

Naibor Camp is a striking combination of contemporary style and bush living. Occupying a prime position overlooking the Talek River in the southern section of the Masai Mara, Naibor Camp has 7 spacious pale canvas tents, complete with king size beds with soft quilts and wide cushion-strewn sofas. The tents are set in the shade of acacia trees and each has a private veranda, his & hers wash basins and en suite bathroom with a flush toilet. All the tents are furnished with solid, comfortable furniture.

Naibor Camp''s main mess tent is located centrally overlooking the Talek River where animals regularly come to drink. Comfortable floor cushions, rugs and sofas offer relaxation while the camp fire provides a welcome spot for pre-dinner drinks in the evening. Meals are made from the finest fresh ingredients prepared by experienced chefs. Dinner is served at either the long banquet table or at private tables under the stars, whilst breakfast and lunch may either be served in camp or as a picnic during a morning of game watching.

The camp's location offers exciting viewing points at migration time as the wildebeest and zebra pass through this area of the Mara Reserve on their quest for water and grazing. It is also a wonderful year-round location where game viewing is always guaranteed to be spectacular. Apart from game drives, other activities include guided bush walks on the edge of the reserve. This is an opportunity to be able to witness and enjoy the surroundings from a totally different perspective where suddenly the smaller and sometimes overlooked aspects of the wild come to life, their significance in the broader ecology becoming apparent.

Naibor Spa offers massages, reflexology, foot scrubs, manicures and pedicures and other luxuries on the shady banks of the Talek River.

Power is provided by solar for most of the day.

Little Naibor provides exclusive suites away from the main camp with it's own staff.


Open: Naibor Camp is open all year.

Location: The camp is in the Masai Mara Game Reserve, in woodland near the Talek River, about 2kms from its confluence with the Mara River. The closest airstrip is Olkiombo, about a 30 minute drive from the camp.

Rooms: There are 7 large guest tents with canvas flaps at the front and side that can be rolled up. Each has a king size bed, indoor seating, solar-powered lighting and an en-suite bathroom with twin hand basins, a bucket shower and flush toilet. Every tent has a private veranda, and is set among trees that provide seclusion.

Activities: Game drives in 4x4 vehicles are the main activity, taking place in the early morning and late afternoon. Full day drives with a picnic lunch are also offered. Bush meals and sundowners can be arranged. Dawn hot air balloon rides are possible, at extra cost. The camp is near Mara River crossing sites, which makes for exciting game viewing during the migration (July to November).

Facilities: The mess tent incorporates both the lounge and dining area. There is ample seating including large floor cushions, and it leads out to a deck facing the Talek River. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served under cover inside the tent or out on the deck. At the spa tent you can enjoy a relaxing massage. There's a boutique where you can buy designer jewellery and pieces made by local people.

Dining: Meals are usually eaten together as a group in the mess tent and on the deck, though private meals on your tent deck can be arranged.

Children: Children of all ages are welcome, though there may be age limits on activities.

Health: This is a malarial area.

Communication: There is complimentary wifi internet access in the lounge.

Amanda Marks, Tribes

"Naibor, Little Naibor and Naibor Wilderness Camp are on the River Talk in the middle of the Masai Mara are all very close, but don’t impinge on each other. Little Naibor can share the facilities of Main Naibor or be taken as a private camp. Naibor Wilderness Camp is a short walk away, and usually serviced separately, though could share Main Naibor’s facilities if required. I stayed here for lunch, hosted by the charming and knowledgeable managers, and loved the quiet calm of this beautifully furnished camp. The tents in Main and Little Naibor are gorgeous, and even the tents of the more rustic Wilderness Camp are not that rustic! If you want a small, high quality camp in the middle of the Mara reserve, this is definitely one to consider."
