Things to do in the Masai Mara ecosystem

Immerse yourself in this prime wildlife area. Explore the Acacia-dotted plains without the crowds. Soak up the wisdom of the Maasai guides. And connect with nature in a way you didnít dream possible. At the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, you can.

Because the Mara Naboisho Conservancy is not governed by the same rules that apply to national parks, there is the flexibility to experience something truly profound and to see and do things not possible in the Masai Mara National Reserve. The passion and expertise of the guides at the conservancy facilitate this experience.

Take a walking safari and discover ecosystems that are so often ignored. Spend the night in a transient fly camp and enjoy the simple pleasure of a meal cooked over a campfire. Head out on a night game drive in search of elusive nocturnal creatures that are rarely seen during the day. Or join the Mara Naboisho Lion Project as they track lions across the conservancy. If your interests extend beyond wildlife to include the indigenous people and culture, a visit to one of the Maasai villages on the edges of the conservancy can be arranged.

Variety is what distinguishes the exceptional from the mundane. Whatever things you would like to see and do, at the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, you have the freedom to choose. And that makes all the difference.

The Mara Naboisho conservancy offers the widest range of things to see and do in the Masai Mara ecosystem. Learn more in our travel guide.

Game drives in the Masai Mara ecosystem

You will either depart from the camp early with a packed breakfast and return for lunch and an afternoon game drive, or enjoy a slightly more leisurely start to the day with breakfast at the camp and a packed lunch to enjoy your game drive out on the plains.

Setting out on a walking safari in the Masai Mara ecosystem not only offers you the chance to stretch your legs, but also the opportunity to focus on some of the smaller ecosystems that are often overlooked from the height of a vehicle.
