Naboisho Conservancy

Created in 2010, the Mara Naboisho Conservancy is a private wildlife conservancy located in the Greater Mara Ecosystem in southwestern Kenya. The 50,000-acre unfenced area borders the Masai Mara National Reserve to the east and is dedicated to conserving the biodiversity, wildlife habitats, resources, people, and cultural heritage of the region. 

More About Naboisho

Eco-tourism and

Naboisho, which means “coming together” in the Maasai language, is a community response to combining wildlife conservation with tourism and communal ownership of land. The key objectives that gave birth to the conservancy were:

  •  to conserve the biological resources and the socio-cultural heritage of the iconic Masai Mara;
  •  to promote tourism- a vital source of income and employment for the region’s population;
  • to contribute to wealth creation for landowners, who’ve always maintained the spirit of habitat preservation, letting the wildest places on Earth be truly wild and untamed.

Did you know ?

What is now the second largest conservancy in the Mara region was once just a collection of 500 landowners that got together and asked the Basecamp Foundation Kenya to facilitate the formation of the conservancy as a community wildlife area. In 2008, a forum – which brought together community leaders, upcoming community champions, dedicated resource managers, seasoned conservationists, experienced socio-ecologists, and tourism investors – was convened to chart out a broader framework for the development of Naboisho.


From about July to October, one of nature’s greatest spectacles reaches the Masai Mara, and the weather is cold and dry. Between November and January, the Mara witnesses its short rains with some migrating herds still remaining in the ecosystem around November. February & March are warm and sunny with isolated showers. April-Mid June witnesses the long rains and drenches the landscape in greenery.
