I stayed for four days at the Nashulai Maasai Conservancy in the Maasai Mara and had a truly excellent time (arranged by Stuart of Nashulai Journeys). Everybody was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Besides having some really enjoyable game drives and seeing much of the wildlife (with good photos), I was also able to observe some of the Maasai's everyday life. Javin especially was extremely informative and was uncomplaining when I asked him to repeat some stories to a tape recorder as he told me too much to remember immediately. Moses was really friendly and a good guide/driver. I should also mention the kindness of the various rangers (Benjamin Koke, Vionah, Faith and Kiok) in spending a lot of time explaining and demonstrating the techniques they use in their conservation work.

All in all, I would strongly recommend visiting the conservancy. I had a great time.

I visited Nashulai in summer 2022 and was amazed at the mission and how the community came together to create a Maasai run community conservancy. I had hesitations about visiting Africa as a tourist as I didn’t want to contribute to the typical exploitative models of conservancy but I longed to see an elephant in the wild. Nashulai was the perfect solution as supporting Nashulai supports an incredible cause and every dollar goes to the local people. Good cause aside, the natural rugged landscape made such a beautiful backdrop for the abundance of wildlife we saw. Getting to walk on the land instead of only seeing it from a car was an unbeatable experience! I highly recommend Nashulai!!!

Only take the amount of money you are prepared to spend in the market. Lovely genuine souvenirs but the start price for haggling can be high. Being able to show that was all we had made things easier

It’s right by the National Maasai Mara Park where I spotted all of the big five and cheetah cubs too. The birds are amazing. Nice camp, food and people with amazing sunsets with storytelling from the local Maasai.

We couldn't believe that there were different variety of giraffes and we were able to explore them very closely. We were able to see local Masai in traditional costumes.

It's amazing that in the 21st century people are still living in these conditions. Although, I suppose it's by choice, it's still quite remarkable. The tour was very interesting and educational. The chief was very friendly and informative but we noticed he was wearing a Seiko watch. Not exactly what you would expect. And, midway, through the tour they started trying to sell us stuff. First, after a demonstration of starting a fire, it was the fire starting tools. Then, after the tour was over, we were led to the marketing section where we were pressured into buying some items that we had seen in stores throughout Africa. Not a great ending but still an interesting stop.

In 2017 my husband and I visited the Nashulai Maasai Conservancy for the first time when we stayed at Oldarpoi Mara Camp. It was - and still is - a young Conservancy. In August 2018 I returned on my own. The transformation from what we observed the year earlier was obvious!! Waterholes filled with water, lots of wildlife; sebras, warthogs, wildebeest, giraffes in numbers, antelopes, jackals, birds and even hyenas. I was told even lions were observed.
The director, the guides and rangers are so dedicated to their work. The Conservancy is so lush and quiet and wildlife seem to thrive as only guests at Oldarpoi Mara Camp (I think) get access to enjoy safaris. Rarely there are more than 3 vehicles at the same time which means you avoid the crowds in other parks. This is a place to lower your shoulders and enjoy silence where the sounds of nature are the only sounds to hear.
In addition to the best safari experience I find the way the Conservancy are organized very responsible and sustainable. In addition to ensure the land owners an income It gives locals work to fend for their families which have a huge impact in the entire area. I can’t recommend enough to do a visit to Oldarpoi Mara Camp and that way to enjoy this Gem of Maasai Mara! I will be back for sure!
