Go to the Mara and you will see incredible wildlife spectacles. Stay in the Naboisho Conservancy and you will also experience serenity, peace and an uncrowded environment. Basecamp Wilderness is situated high above the acacia woodland. This affords a gorgeous view and one can see game below going about their lives. Lion, zebra, hyena and others are heard at night. The online photos do not do justice to the beauty of the scenery or to the quality and lovely design of the public areas and the "huts". I was treated like visting royalty and felt as welcome as a member of the family. The meals were excellent and were served at my convenience by a friendly, inobtrusive and competent staff. The very spacious and beautifully designed "hut" has a private covered patio for viewing game, reading or snoozing. The ensuite bathroom has hot water at all times. Colorfully dressed Masai men with spears accompany guests after dark to and from the reception/dining area. Game drives and other activities were arranged according to guest request. The schedule was flexible according to weather, guest preference, etc. This camp was established to help support the Koiyaki Guiding School which is a few hundred meters away. Local Masai men and women are educated to be guides and prepare to pass national exams to qualify as professionals. One of the graduates is the main guide at the camp. He clearly got a very thorough education about the natural history of the area as well as how to drive on safari roads, through rivers and past elephants. Hearing about life as a Masai was a wonderful experince in itself. The concept of a conservancy area and the practical application of land use for tourism rather than just grazing (sometimes overgrazing these days) is growing. When one sees that the quality of the habitat is equal to the Masai Mara Game Reserve just adjacent to it, one is heartened that the ecosystem can survive despite growth of the human population. Dollars, Euros, K Shillings, etc. spent here are going to support a local community. I would definitely return to this camp if I were so lucky as to be able to return to Kenya.

Room Tip: All sites are excellent. If you do not like walking, ask for a room closest to the dining area.
