The main focus at Naibor is to drive out from camp daily to observe and photograph the extraordinary concentrations of wildlife. The Naibor vehicles are ideal for observing and photographing wildlife, and for getting around in the sometimes difficult conditions characteristic of the Mara habitat. Early morning and late afternoon game drives are recommended, as it is generally cooler and the wildlife is more active during these times. However, if preferred an all day game drive with a picnic lunch can also be arranged (this is popular during the migration season). All Naibor driver/guides are all knowledgeable and professional, and have attained minimum guiding accreditation at the KPSGA Bronze level.
“Out of Africa” style bush meals are set up for any number of people in a private exclusive location. Bush breakfasts and packed lunches can all be arranged. Sundowner cocktails are a popular way to enjoy the end of the day. Relax and enjoy the surrounding bush with a drink and bitings as the sun sets.
Cultural visits to the nearby Masai communities just outside the reserve can also be arranged. Visit one of the villages, observe traditional dances and interact with these very traditional people.
Hot Air Ballooning can also be arranged and this involves an early morning wakeup to get to the balloon launch site for 6.00am, a flight of approximately 1.5hrs over the grasslands teeming with wildlife, champagne breakfast on landing and game drive back to Naibor.
Masai Mara & The Great Migration
The Masai Mara Game Reserve and adjacent Conservation area totals 750 square miles and forms the northern tip of the Serengeti / Mara ecosystem. The Masai Mara offers wonderful scenery and an amazing abundance of wildlife.
Every year it hosts what is now recognized as the greatest show on earth, 'the migration', which takes place between July and October. Over a million wildebeest and two hundred thousand zebra pass through on their endless journey, following the rains and in search of grass. Here you are able to witness the spectacular river crossings and the frenzy of predator activity.
The precise timing of the migration changes annually, arriving in the Masai Mara as early as July, but more commonly in August and September. The Mara River is the greatest obstacle they have to face,as the currents can be strong and the banks steep, but it is the gigantic Nile crocodiles that is to be their biggest obstacle! Over a million wildebeest and two hundred thousand zebra are on this endless journey in search of fresh grasslands. Typically the herds continue their journey south in November but have been known to stay into January.
Naibor aids and involves nearby Masai communities in preserving their wildlife and environment, and provides them with a source of income. This enables the rural populations to benefit from their natural resources in a sustainable and non-destructive way so to better able to care for their families and improve their standard of living.
As far as possible, Naibor recruits staff for employment from the nearby community. In addition the community receives a direct contribution for every guest per night in the camp. This contribution is then dedicated to social development projects in the community. Naibor also helps to channel private investment and donations into micro-finance, health and education projects within the local area. The Naibor Shop is specifically aimed at providing an outlet for locally made Masai crafts and arts - providing the Masai people with a market for their artistic talents.
