Naibor Camps

Main Naibor mess.
Designed as a space away from the hurly-burly of modern life, where the hustle and bustle is provided only by the wild animals, Naibor camp is hidden in a grove of riverine woodland on the banks of the Talek River. Located just minutes from one of the world-famous wildebeest crossing sites, the environment teems with wildlife, flora and fauna.

The luxury tented accommodation is defined by contemporary style and discrete elegance. A tented safari par excellence, the camp is thoughtfully and tastefully designed, allowing all comforts to be met, whilst allowing complete immersion in the splendour of the natural world outside. 

Dinner on the deck. 
Sweeping pale canvas tents, with en-suite bathrooms, king-sized beds made from local fig-wood, wide sofas furnished with bolster cushions, and wool rugs – all bring “camping” into a new dimension, and form an outstanding base from which to embark on unforgettable explorations of the famed Masai Mara.

Mess from outside
Each tent is a private unit complete with shady verandah, 'his-and-hers' wash basins, en-suite bathroom with flush toilet, and safari shower.

Based on the bend of the Talek river, Main Naibor offers spectacular views across the plains of the Mara. Its special river overlook allows hours to be spent observing the resident pod of hippo, as they wallow in the nearby waters.

Klaserie Sands Safari Trails.

In the cacophony of chaos we call the 21st century, many travellers are searching for a holiday experience that offers more than an escape from the every day. There is a yearning for stillness and reconnection that many traditional vacation outlets are unable to deliver.

Klaserie Sands Safari Trails is the sister camp of internationally renowned Klaserie Sands River Camp. Perfectly blending serenity, luxury and adventure, this exclusive camp offers guests a deep and rich immersion in untouched nature within the wildlife-rich Greater Kruger National Park.

The Camp
For adventurous souls seeking an authentic safari experience, Klaserie Sands Safari Trails is a world-class walking safari destination. Built into the banks of a dry riverbed, the tastefully-appointed tented camp is located in one of the last frontiers of untouched Kruger wilderness. Reawakened by the Klaserie Sands family, this breathtaking expanse of land shares an unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park, with game moving freely throughout the area.
Exclusively available to the camp’s guests and staff, the area is strewn with undiscovered animal paths and abundant birdlife, offering guests the most intimate of safari and tracking experiences. The diverse terrain offers panoramic vistas of the nearby Olifants river and distant Drakensberg mountain range.
At Klaserie Sands Safari Trails, we aim to instil true reconnection in our guest experience – connection with people, nature and self. As such, the camp is located in an area with no electricity or Wifi signal and very limited cell phone signal. 24/7 radio access means that we are reachable in the case of an emergency but we highly encourage our guests to switch off and use the opportunity to experience true connectivity.

Tented accommodation
Nestled amongst the trees, the tented accommodation is beautifully appointed with soft linens, clothing and luggage racks and en-suite bathroom. Each of the 4 tents features a private timber deck overlooking the riverbed, the perfect spot for an afternoon nap or wildlife spotting. Gauze tent flaps offer protection from mosquitoes while allowing the cool breeze and sounds of the bush to gently lull one to sleep.
Each tent features a ceiling fan, USB charging port, solar lanterns, an en-suite bathroom with both an indoor and outdoor shower and complimentary toiletries. Daily housekeeping and turn-down services are included, ensuring our guests' absolute comfort.

Camp facilities and activities
Klaserie Sands Safari Trails offers its guests an idyllic setting in which to relax, refresh and reconnect. A beautiful communal lounge area overlooks the riverbed, offering guests a sumptuous spot from which to take in the area's prolific bird life. Forming a natural hide, guests are often treated to views of passing animals, large and small. Guests are free to select magazines, books, boardgames and even a glass of something refreshing from the well-laden drinks trolley.
The beautiful plunge pool provides an icy respite from the heat of the day and guests can while the afternoon hours away on the comfortable nearby loungers.
A boma area features a crackling campfire; which welcomes guests back after their evening safari and provides the heat over which a delicious dinner is cooked. The camp is equipped with a private chef and two expert game rangers who host guests for the duration of their stay. A delicious continental and hot breakfast is served in the camp's intimate dining room; open on all sides to the morning's fresh breeze. 
Guests of Klaserie Sands Safari Trails have the opportunity to conduct two walking safaris daily with industry leading field trackers and game rangers. Daily safari drives are also extended to guests, with the itinerary being tailored to in-house guests’ preferences. Bird-watching, star-gazing, wildlife tracking, bush bars and starlit outdoor dining experiences are just some of the incredible activities offered to our guests during their stay at Klaserie Sands Safari Trails.

Offbeat Riding Safaris

You have not experienced the Maasai Mara of you haven't experienced it from the back of a horse. Reconnect with the ancient synergy as you cross the entire Mara ecosystem on horseback, criss-crossing one of the most exciting ecosystems on the planet.  

Atop the Syria escarpment. 

Offbeat Riding Safaris have been operating since 1990 and have a stellar reputation for providing unrivaled mobile horseback safaris amongst big game. Riding up close to elephant, lion and buffalo, or galloping with wildebeest and zebra are life changing experiences. If you are a rider, there is simply no better way to see Kenya than from the back of a well schooled and fit horse. We ride across the Masai Mara, Amboseli, and Laikipia, choosing the best routes. With a traditional mobile tented safari camp that moves with us, supported by a lorry and Land Rovers, this is the epitome of what a true 'safari' is all about. Wildlife is plentiful in all the areas that we ride and your guide is highly knowledgeable and conversant with the habits and likely reactions of the wildlife.
Crossing the Mara river on horseback is, to put it simply, an out of this world surreal experience.
