Naibor, Mara Reserve: The Lowdown

Extraordinary Africa>Kenya>Masai Mara>Naibor

Naibor Main Camp is one of three sister camps peacefully set amongst the trees on the banks of the Talek River in the main Mara Reserve.

What’s Naibor really like?

Main Naibor itself has just seven lovely luxury tents, 5 doubles and two twin tents. These all have ensuite bathrooms with flushing loos and bucket showers, and there’s a small verandah in front to sit and watch the world go by. There’s a cosy lounge and dining tent, though often you’ll take your drinks out to the campfire in the evening, and eat the odd meal out in the bush rather than under canvas.

What can I do at Naibor?

Here in the heart of the Mara Reserve, it’s no surprise that the main activities at Naibor are morning and afternoon game drives. It’s also possible to arrange a hot air balloon flight as an optional extra from camp. It’s a very early start, but we haven’t met anyone who hasn’t loved it yet. It is also possible to have massages at Naibor for an extra fee- there is something very special about being pampered with the sounds of the bush in the background.

Giving back at Naibor:

For each guest who stays at Naibor a donation is made to the local community to help with social development projects and the gift shop in camp helps provide an income for the local Maasai craftsmen (or in this case, mainly craftswomen!) Naibor also helps to support the Black Rhino Protection Unit and the Mara-Meru cheetah project.
