“Exclusive and top notch”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

I have stayed at Wilderness camp many times between 2008 and 2012. I absolutely have the best game drives while in the Nabiosho Conservancy. I really enjoy the seclusion compared to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Though it has a much different terrain from the savannah's, it offers a variety of animals. I enjoy viewing the animals alone without any other tourists and cars around. It gives you a much more intimate experience. The service is always great, the staff are 100% accommodating and treat you like a Queen. I love the bedrooms, showers, and the sunrise on the veranda with a cup of coffee is pure heaven. Very romantic if you have significant other! To top off the trip I always have the best guide ever, Big Moses is beyond amazing!

We stayed here for 1 night only but it was a great experience. The view from the camp overlooking the waterhole and savannah is breathtaking. Food was very good and the staff were friendly and hospitable. Would definitely recommend to stay here and make it for more than 1 night!

This camp is wonderful but you need to do your homework. It is NOT inside the Mara - therefore this may involve additional park and transfer fees, time, and other considerations when you plan your trip.

The big plus is that you can do walking trails and night drives in the Naibosho conservancy where the camp is located, and it is a great opportunity to meet - and be hosted by - Maasai guides, in a non-tourist-trap environment, because there are only around 10 people in the camp with you at any one time (although I think they are expanding a little). The vista from the tents is unforgettable.

On the minus side, you may not see the volume of animals you see in the Mara, although this being said we saw two lions mating, which was very special (not on the walking safari, thank goodness!). For that reason, two to three nights is probably enough here, with the rest spent inside the main Mara reserve (Basecamp main camp being a good option here too).

I spent a couple of nights at the end of September in this eco-friendly Maasai-guided safari camp in the Naboisho conservancy in the Mara. Room was simply spectacular with a private veranda overlooking the plane just like in a scene from Out of Africa. The staff were friendly and warm. All meals were delicious and drinks (both cocktails and wine selection) excellent! Charlie was a splendid host and I certainly did not want to leave! A must stop if you are looking for simple elegance in the heart of and surrounded by the magic of African wilderness!

I stayed here in September and didn't want to leave! The tents are have huge private balconies with gorgeous views. The staff are warm and friendly and make a nice bonfire each evening on the main veranda (and they make great Pimms cocktails!). The place is really well done with rugged yet sophisticated decor. I also loved having delicious meals on the open veranda while watching all types of animals strolling by below. Can't go wrong with this place.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in mid-August. The room was amazing, with a stunning view from the private veranda. Located on a ridge, this hotel provides a panoramic view that the other hotels we stayed at could not offer. The staff was very friendly, the food was excellent (two course breakfasts and three course lunches and suppers), and the room itself was nicely apportioned. With the exception of wildlife noises, the hotel was private and quiet. I agree with the other reviews that the photos do not do the place justice--this hotel exceeded my expectations by a factor of 100! This was a true luxury experience and I hope to go back if I am lucky enough to return to Kenya.

Room Tip: As far as I can tell, there are no bad rooms!

I stayed here for a few days in August. The hotel blew my mind! Each room has a private veranda overlooking the woodland savanah with 180* endless panoramic views. The staff here was really friendly and helpful. I was the only guest there at the time so they literally took care of me like I owned the place. If you visit Masai Mara, stay here!
