Our Seasonal Camp in Maasailand2017-08-24T18:31:58-07:00

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!

Best Responsible Guide Company 2019

Wow – five stars hardly tells the story of the outstanding experience we had using Nature Discovery as our safari expert. I was amongst 23 professional women from the US, Europe and Asia and we had the experience of a lifetime. This is largely due to Nature Discovery’s extremely well thought out game plan of where, when and why, and impeccably organized and delivered service. Four different safari parks, two days in the bush with the local Massai tribe, a coffee plantation, several unique but spectacular camp accommodations, and outstanding guides (4 jeeps and 4 guides) made for a blow your mind experience overall. As I said on facebook – I went for the animals (which were spectacular), but I fell in love with the people. A wonderful outcome thanks to Nature Discovery. I / we can’t wait to come back!

Voyage vraiment fabuleux.
Agence très sérieuse, très à l’écoute, qui prend le temps de vous poser toutes les questions nécessaires pour bien comprendre le projet de voyage de chacun avant de vous proposer un circuit. Sylvain et Cécile ont été très réactifs lors du changement de vol imposé quelques jours avant notre départ, ils trouvent une solution efficace très rapidement.
Le safari correspondait à nos attentes, notre guide Henry a été parfait, très compétent sur la faune, la flore et bien plus, très prudent, à l’écoute de nos envies et humainement adorable.
Merci encore pour toutes ces émotions que vous nous avaient fait vivre! À bientôt pour de nouvelles aventures!
