Protecting pristine wildlife in the Maasai Mara region
Naboisho is a Maasai war-cry meaning “coming together” when faced with an existential threat. In 2010, the Basecamp Explorer Group (Basecamp Explorer together with Basecamp Explorer Foundation) initiated the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, today protecting 20’000 hectares of pristine wildlife in the Maasai Mara region. Naboisho is the leading private conservancy in Kenya, based on an innovative partnership model between Maasai landowners and ecotourism operators with equitable decision rights and income participation. In 2016, Naboisho was recognized as Overall Winner of the Responsible Tourism Africa Awards, serving as a role model for other conservancies in Kenya and around the globe.
