MASAI MARA-NABOISHO CONSERVANCY.

Located in Kenya adjacent to the Masai Mara National Reserve, this private conservancy is a ground breaking project of tourism benefiting conservation and community. With its high concentration of wildlife, and generous personal space and freedom on offer, visitors enjoy exceptional wildlife encounters. Imagine setting up camp on the plains of the African savannah and waking up to the sounds of a herd of zebra right outside your tent. Or tracking a pride of 20 lions without catching sight of another group of camera-toting predators. Imagine venturing out into the unknown at night. At the Mara Naboisho Conservancy this is possible. The Mara Naboisho Conservancy in Kenya is home to the big cats – in impressive numbers – and herds of elephant, giraffe, and wildebeest. Unlike its neighbor, the Masai Mara National Reserve, this private conservancy strictly monitors the number of tourists who enter the area, reducing the number of vehicles and the human impact on the environment and wildlife. While the charm of the Mara Naboisho Conservancy is its exclusivity, the philosophy of the conservancy is refreshingly inclusive. The 50,000 acre conservancy is made up of land contributions from 500 Maasai landowners. The conservancy fees provide the Maasai community with a sustainable livelihood and ensure the conservation of the wildlife in this vital corridor of the Masai Mara eco-system.

Two full days spent in the park with scheduled safari activities. The Serengeti eco-system contains the greatest concentration of wildlife in Africa. The varied topography and seasons creates a hugely diverse range of landscapes and changing wildlife habitats. The wet season starts with the short rains in November and ends with the long rains in April/May. The dry season runs from June to October although this is more extreme in the south than in the north. Great herds of migratory wildebeest, zebra and antelope roam the plains together with their attendant predators such as lion, cheetah, hyena and jackal. The open short grass plains dotted with rock outcrops “kopjes” dominate the south and provide nutritious food for the Wildebeest and their new born calves during Dec to April. Look out for hippo and crocodile along the river banks and leopard in the forest. Heading North to Lobo, the plains give way to wooded hills with rocky outcrops and a favorite area for elephants. Here in the north, there is enough rain throughout the year to keep the grasslands nutritious and there are plenty of resident plains game and big cats. All meals and overnight stay will be at Serengeti Under Canvas.

After an exhilarating game drive, guests stop for sundowners on the lakeshore below the Great Rift Valley wall. Lake Manyara Tree Lodge offers a sophisticated blend of natural indulgence and romance. Nestled in dense forest between the lakeshore and the steep Rift Valley escarpment, the lodge is perfectly positioned to explore the park’s wealth of habitats. Set in the remote southern region of the park, you would be surprised to see another vehicle on your game drive. Each suite is a lofty tree house with private veranda and large windows that open up to the lush forest, welcoming in the sights and sounds of the African bush. Woodchip paths and natural branch railings blur the edges between the natural and the manmade, while wooden interiors and thatched roofs invite the surrounding forest indoors.
