We spent 3 nights at Naibor Camp in February as part of a 5 camp 14 night trip to Kenya and Tanzania. This was our favorite camp. The camp is set in a grove of trees overlooking a bend in the Talek River. The lunch/cocktail area overlooks a pool with a large number of hippos that provide great entertainment. The food at Naibor was especially good. All the camps have good food that is well prepared but often times not very imaginative. Not so with Naibor. We enjoyed the variety and the creativity (and the spices). Our favorite experience was during a drive south to the Mara River. We had our breakfast on a bluff overlooking a bend in the river that was full of hippos and crocodiles. (We were too early for the migration but the hippos and crocs were entertainment enough). Our guide and the camp managers were both professional and friendly. This is a mobile camp so you have bucket showers and solar powered lighting. Be sure to bring your own flashlight as the interior of the tents can be dim after sunset.
