The Ultimate Safari Experience

6 days classic safari at Masai Mara and Mara Naboisho in Kenya

Experience the ultimate safari adventure in the world-famous Maasai Mara and private Naboisho Conservancy. As a small and personal company we tailor-make all our safari programmes. Each element of the following Classic Safari Itinerary can be changed to suit your personal preferences.

Day 1

As you disembark your plane at Olkiombo Airstrip one of our friendly and knowledgeable Maasai Guides – the true experts – is standing ready to take you on your very first Game Drive in one of our tailor-made 4×4 Safari Land Cruisers. During your drive you will be introduced to the exceptional wildlife of the Maasai Mara, including thriving populations of lions, elephants, cheetah and leopards. You will arrive at Basecamp Maasai Mara – our very own cradle of mankind – for lunch, freshly prepared by our trained team of Maasai chefs. After lunch wander around the camp compound and reconnect with your well travelled self, while you take in the tranquility of Basecamp Masai Mara. At 4pm meet your Maasai Guide to explore new dimensions of the Savannah during your Afternoon Game Drive. Return to Basecamp Masai Mara in time for a mouth-watering three-course dinner, followed by story sharing and stargazing around the fireplace. When you are ready, retire to your tent and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the savannah.

Day 2

Wake to the magnificent ‘wake up call’ of Basecamp Masai Mara’s astonishing birdlife. After breakfast meet your Naturalist Maasai Guide for a Camp Walk around the camp compound. During your walk you will be introduced to some of the operational elements that have made Basecamp a leading pioneer in responsible tourism. Your Camp Walk includes a visit to the Basecamp Maasai Brand workshop, one of our capacity-building projects that employ 118 women. Complete your Camp Walk by planting a tree in our Tree Plantation, just like the Obama family. After a freshly prepared lunch, served underneath the trees overlooking the Maasai Mara National Reserve, stroll across our private suspension bridge to join your Maasai Guide for an Afternoon Game Drive. Finish your Game Drive with a traditional Basecamp Sundowner under an Acacia Tree. Return to Basecamp Masai Mara for dinner, followed by story sharing and stargazing around the fireplace.

After lunch, prepare to journey on to the next destination of your journey through the Basecamp Circuit: Wilderness Camp. Tucked away deep inside the incomparable Saddle Valley in Naboisho Conservancy, Wilderness Camp has been designed as a tribute to safari as it was meant to be. Arrive at Wilderness Camp in time for a Basecamp Sundowner. The camp has been purposefully constructed to allow for exceptional views of the sunrise and sunset. Enjoy the contrast of eating first-class cuisine in the middle of the wilderness. After dinner, gather around the fireplace to listen to the meditative rhythm of the Maasai chanting.

Eagle View is located atop a natural hilltop, allowing for unprecedented views of the Savannah. In the afternoon your Maasai Guide will bring you to Oleseri, Basecamp’s Green Village. In Oleseri we have supported the local community by building a health clinic, upgrading the primary school and drilling a solar-powered borehole. Round off your Afternoon Game Drive with a Basecamp Sundowner on the open savannah. When driving back in the dark your guide will equip the car with infrared lights to allow you to spot the nocturnal animals of Naboisho. Night Safaris are exhilarating experiences that can only be enjoyed inside private conservancies like Naboisho. Return to camp for a three-course dinner and story time around the fireplace.
