Our Seasonal Camp in Maasailand
Longido Seasonal Camp
Experience a real safari adventure, staying in our intimate bush camp near Mount Longido, walking with the Maasai in their traditional homeland as they’ve done for hundreds of years, far from tourists’ haunts. Lose yourself in a time ruled by pastoral rhythms of the ageless and graceful Maasai, and journey back to a time before machines, reconnecting to nature and satisfying your nomadic spirit.
Our seasonal bush camp is set in the wilderness, with up to seven spacious sleeping tents. Dining is in a traditional Maasai mud and wattle structure with grass roof-thatch. The whole camp is lit by solar light – no noisy generators here!
The sleeping tents at this camp offer the following amenities:
4m x 3m insect-proof nylon classic-style safari tent with fly sheet and 4m x 1.5m verandah. Solar powered LED lights illuminate the inside the sleeping tent, with an additional solar safari lantern on the front verandah. The toilet and shower tents are separate (one tent has an en suite toilet and shower attached at the back). And are also solar lit for ease of use at night. The shower consists of a 15 liter bag with valve-handle and shower rose. On the floor is a wooden stand. Each person sleeps on a metal frame bed with a 4” foam mattress. We provide clean bed sheets, blankets and pillows. On the tent floor is a large woven grass mat. Outside on the front verandah of each tent are two safari chairs and a small table covered with a kikoi cloth. We provide a fresh bath towel and face towel once every two nights of camping. Also we provide each person with a wash stand, outside the tent.
Our expert chefs prepare and cook all the meals, and our guests will attest that our cooks exceed expectations despite the limited resources of a bush kitchen. We use special eco-friendly charcoal plus gas burners for cooking food at the camp, plus eco-friendly water-heaters to heat water for hot showers. Friendly camp crew are there to serve meals, prepare hot showers, and make the nightly campfire, of course!

We had a fantastis safari with Japhet (we did three safaris with him). He is a perfect guide with an excellent eye to spot animals and who takes all the time to wait for something special. In 12 days in Serengeti and N4gorongoro we saw one female cheetah with her cub trying to chase two times a gazelle; one female leopard playing with her cub, one lionness catching a zebra; more leopards in the trees with their kill…..We recommand strongly this agency for the safaris.
Nature Discovery are simply phenomenal. Without their superb planning, attention to detail, and the expertise of the guides we wouldn’t have been able to even attempt the World Record. (World’s Highest Football Match ) We cannot recommend the team highly enough and you can trust Ailsa, Thomas, MC and the team completely for your amazing adventures.

Vraiment très bien : un chauffeur/guide prévenant, efficace, ponctuel, sympathique, parlant bien le français, des hébergements au top, conforme au « contrat » négocié depuis la France. On recommande à 100%. C’était Génial
