is a prime private conservancy which lies immediately to the northeast of the main Maasai Mara
reserve in Southwest Kenya
This area contains 145 square kilometres of pretty scenery, with level grasslands punctuated by a network of shallow forested valleys, very pretty in parts and quite different from the main reserve.
There is a good deal of resident wildlife, including at least two prides of lion, as many as a dozen resident leopards, regular sightings of cheetahs and plenty of elephants.
Mara Naboisho can see moderate migration action sporadically during the Jul/Oct dry season, although you will need to drive south into the Mara Confluence
area if you want to see significant river crossings.
Being a private conservancy means that vehicle traffic is strictly limited. Only guests of the dozen or so small camps here are permitted to explore this significant tract of prime land. Vehicle clusters of any type are very rare.
It also means that camp operators are free to offer off-road driving, walking safari, bush meals and some limited night vehicle safari, which helps to produce a much more rounded experience.
There are also significant opportunities for cultural interaction with the local Maasai people, who are shareholders in the conservancy and therefore tend to be very welcoming.SeasonsAccommodationTrips
