Positive Impact & Responsible Travel
We invite you to join us at Naboisho Camp during your Kenyan safari as we seek to make a positive and sustainable impact through responsible tourism. Each guest bednight in the conservancy ensures the conservation of the nature, the wildlife and the equally important socio-cultural heritage of the Maasai culture.
Our goal is to be a role model in sustainable tourism as we seek to create lasting positive impacts on both the natural habitats and the lives of the people in the areas in which we have a presence.
At the heart of our organization is a sincere and strongly developed sustainability agenda as we have no doubt that conservation and community development is crucial for our long-term success. Without compromising on quality or experience, our lodges and camps answer to the highest demands on eco-tourism.
We strongly believe and encourage the positive force that the combination of our guests, our travel industry partners and our own operations can make to the areas we operate in. Our approach to how we operate can be summarized as one of ‘Collaborative Conservation’. The Mara Naboisho Conservancy
is an example of this positive force made a reality.

Positive impact at Naboisho Camp
Naboisho Camp is situated within the Mara Naboisho Conservancy
, a ground-breaking co-operative development model.
Asilia Africa is proud to be one of the driving forces behind the conservancy, the creation of which saw over 500 Masai landowners coming together to contribute their land to conservation. 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 ecosystem. In addition to the conservancy’s role in conservation it also provides steady and sustainable employment which it is hoped will lead to an improved standard of living for the community as a whole.
Furthermore it offers additional benefits like health care, clean energy and empowerment of the local people through education and skills training.
Some of our other actions at Naboisho Camp include:
Supporting the Mara Naboisho Lion Project which aims reduce lion/human conflict through improved understanding of lion behavioural patterns. Naboisho Camp is the only camp within the conservancy to offer its guest the opportunity to go out on a game drive with the resident researcher - Niels Mogensen - and learn more about the important work of the project.
The conservancy revolves around the Koiyaki Guiding School which annually trains over 20 local Maasai to become professional guides. All of Naboisho Camp’s guides are graduates of the Koiyaki Guiding School and we are proud to employ one of the first female graduates on the guiding team.
Naboisho Camp aspires to leave behind nothing but footprints. Sustainable operations include recycling rainwater and all waste products.
Naboisho and its guests support the local community, by donating books and equipment through the Pack for a Purpose initiative. Please visit www.packforapurpose.org if you would like to know more about this initiative and how you can contribute.
