Naibor camp is a tented camp in Kenyas Masai Mara . It is extremely well located and has excellent staff and service. It is inside the game reserve so you do not spend lots of time driving in and out to see the game.
Unique Quality: The tents are fit for King!
Robbed and Violently Assaulted in the Masai Mara
On the night of 07 October 2009 at approx 11.30 pm the camp was raided by armed bandits. They discharged a fireman then proceeded to rob the camp site tents including the managers tents and the 4 tents of camp guests, 2 of which were ours. 4 bandits dressed as Masai entered our tent armed with machetes, spears axes etc proceeded to assault us at rob us of money, jewelery and camera gear and other electronics. They then proceeded in to our children’s tent roughed them up and robbed them. After the bandits left our tent my family and I hid down along the river. We figured it was a better option to risk it with wild animals than face the prospect of the bandits returning, these guys meant business and it was obvious they had little regard for life; it would not have taken much for this to have turned really ugly.
The camp owners did not give a damn and did not investigate the claims of staff involvement, their response : "We should have know of the dangers in Africa" & "our injuries were only bruises and therefore no big deal".
Good news is we made it out alive.
Naibor is owned by a couple of Kenya clowns Anthony Cheffings of On Safari Kenya and Nigel Archer of Nigel Archer Safaris who do not take safety and security seriously.
• Prior incidents of robbery in the Mara, the last one only 6 weeks before but Naibor had no armed guards.
• Obvious Naibor camp staff involvement in the robbery but no intention of follow-up by management
My advice: If you must go to the Masai Mara stay in a lodge. If you insist on staying in a tented camp enquire about security and make sure the camp is protected against bandits by armed guards, and lastly STAY AWAY FROM NAIBOR
Incidents like ours have happened before and will happen again, don’t be a victim.
