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!

Nous ( 2 adultes et deux ados) avons fait un safari de 6 jours en octobre 2017 en campsite. Notre experience a été magnifique. Les services de Nature Discovery ont dépassé nos attentes.
Le chauffeur guide Ephata a été extraordinaire.
Il est très professionnel , tant au niveau de sa connaissance des animaux et des parcs , beaucoup de renseignements utiles et interéssants au niveau des animaux et de la nature , une capacité incroyable à trouver les animaux cachés et difficiles à voir pour des amateurs. Il est d’une prudence extrême , toujours respectueux des règles relatives à la sécurité , et très impliqué dans le respect des animaux et de l’environement. Toujours à notre écoute pour satisfaire nos demandes. L’oganisation a été impeccable , aucune critique n’est possible.Le montage et le démontage des tentes rapide et efficace. Le confort dans les tentes a été incroyable , lits de camp , oreillers , draps , sacs de couchages .Quant au cuisinier , il nous a régaler Durant 6 jours avec ses repas faits sur place matin ,midi et soir. Une grande diversité et une qualité vraiment bien. Le cuisinier ainsi que le guide ont été d’une grande gentillesse et discretion , nous avons pu échanger , parler et ce fut vraiment appreciable , car le guide parlait aussi très bien français.
D’autre part le prix pour ces prestations était tout à fait raisonnable.
Pour conclure je dirai que je recommande chaudement cette agence , et que notre experience restera inoubliable.
un grand merci à toute l’équipe.

Nature Discovery were a phenomenal outfit: professional, knowledgeable and excellent fun. We climbed in a huge group to set a Guinness World Record for the highest altitude football game ever played (Equal Playing Field) but the silent heros and heroines were Nature Discovery crew. Every single individual, from the guides to the porters to the cooks to the sanitary crew made our dreams come true. If you want an ethical, professional, well managed, fun loving outfit, go with Nature Discovery!
