A few days into our safari Jack and I had the same thought: How do we bring both of our families here together. Who’s birthday is coming up? Birthdays are always a good excuse for travel. We came up with the idea of celebrating my dad’s and Jack’s mom’s birthday at Naboisho camp. They both turn 55 this year. A girl (and boy) can dream, right?
We dream for everyone to visit! Asilia’s Naboisho Camp in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy is such a special place.
We miss it so much.
We miss the animals. We miss the people. We miss the 5:30am wake up calls of coffee and hot chocolate. We miss the (very dangerous) buffalos and hippos eating right outside our tent in the middle of night and waking us up. We miss our vehicle and Daniel, our driver. I miss the head to toe ponchos. We miss the outstanding food and drinks. We miss walking past zebra and wildebeest grazing at the camp and being all like, “oh, hello”. We miss the hot towel-lets they greet you with after every game drive. We miss the early morning game drives and the sunrises that came with them. We miss the smiles of every staff member. We miss our tent and our outdoor shower. I miss the hot water bottle that was placed between the duvet covers and sheets every night before bed.
I miss the fact that every single detail was thought of and taken care of.
We’ve only gotten to experience a safari at one camp, so we don’t have anything to compare it to, but Asilia’s Naboisho Camp surpassed every expectation we had. If you are planning a trip and have no idea where to go, I would 100% recommend choosing this camp. I would also recommend booking your travels through TrueAfrica.
Maybe if I write about it enough I can get the whole family on board for a trip this July. Wait, forget their birthday, that’s just in time for mine!
