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!
Seasonal bush camp – where comfort meets adventure
The Nature Discovery sleeping tents at Longido Seasonal 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 is a mud building with a chemical toilet inside. Shower tents are separate and are solar lit for ease of use at night. The shower consists of a 15 litre bag with valve-handle and shower rose, on the floor are wooden slats for the water to drain. Each person sleeps on a metal frame bed with a 4” foam mattress. We provide clean bed sheets, blankets and pillows, and 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, and we also provide each person with a washstand, outside the tent.
Our expert chefs prepare and cook all the meals in a purpose-built kitchen, 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!
