Naibor nestles in a grove of yellow-bark Acacias in a 10,000-acre conservancy within Ol Kinyei Group Ranch between the Masai Mara National Reserve and the Loita Hills in Southern Kenya. Consisting of sweeping pale-canvas tents, king-size beds, comfortable sofas and airy verandas, the camp is a luxurious base from which to explore this beautiful area. Since it is on private land, we are fortunate to be able to offer our guests the excitement of game viewing on foot or mountain bikes, in addition to game drives in the surrounding conservancy. Night drives are often rewarding with lion, leopard and cheetah seen regularly amongst a wide variety of herbivores and nocturnal animals.
The camp is a striking combination of contemporary style and comfort and muted bush colours. Spacious pale-canvas tents accommodate king-size beds of fig-wood with soft quilts, wide sofas furnished with bolster cushions and wool rugs, each positioned for the maximum enjoyment of the surrounding views and complete privacy. Each guest tent is a private unit complete with shady veranda, his & hers wash basins, en-suite bathroom with flush toiler and safari shower, filled daily with hot water on request. The tents nestle amongst yellow-bark Acacia trees 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 or walks in the conservancy. The main 'mess' tent is located centrally overlooking a saltlick where animals regularly come to drink. Comfortable floor-cushions, rugs and sofas invite the weary to relax and enjoy the sounds of the wilderness and the campfire provides a welcome spot for pre-dinner drinks in the evening. Meals are made from the finest fresh ingredients prepared by our 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 conservancy offers a large variety of wildlife and birds and there is plenty to see and do. Activities often take place in the mornings and late afternoons as it is cooler and the game therefore more active and easy to spot. Game viewing is specially adapted safari vehicles often rewards guests with sighting of lion, leopard, buffalo, cheetah, hyena and elephant in addition to many different types of herbivore including Zebra, gazelle, eland, wildebeest and giraffe to name but a few. Birdlife in the area is prolific and varied, with a new species for Kenya recently identified near the camp. To enjoy nature up-close, we highly recommend a bush walk with our experienced rangers and guides, as a truly different experience. Sundowners, night-drives and bush breakfasts or dinners are very enjoyable and for the most active, the camp offers mountain biking through the scenic plains that surround the camp. Day trips into the Masai Mara Reserve itself with a picnic breakfast and/or lunch can be arranged as can hot-air ballooning at an additional cost.
