Encapsulated between two hills, this camp is tucked away on a raised ground thereby giving it amazing views of the surrounding Mara reserve. The view of the setting... More

We got to camp Nubian where we were welcomed well, from there on our trip was a nightmare! First thing they told us was that there was no running water and the reason... An elephant had apparently burst the pipe?!?! Yh right. The camp was too far away from the game park at least 2 hours. Food was ok but... More

Amenities

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Nubian Tented Camp is centered on bringing out the adventurous, daring, out of the norm experience in the comfort of absolute luxury in the bush. Explore yourself, find that inner happiness, feel free and live a life full of experiences. Learn something new about yourself as you live everyday full of new promise and experience as our friendly staff treat you to the things you love. The Maasai-Mara is a land that offers the quintessential balance between civilization and the vast wilderness that remains fittingly unexplored, bursting with life and culture. From the crack of dawn to the close of day, the constant vibrancy of the vast flora and fauna found there offers the 'in touch with nature' atmosphere that so many claim is an aspect solely unique to the region. At the heart of this natural hub is The Nubian, a 24 pax gem hidden away from the wilderness at the foot of the picturesque, surrounding, Kileleoni hills. From the charmingly classic build of the tents combined with the modern twist of African-themed interiors, solar-powered infrastructures, outdoor showers, as well as game drives at sunrise in pursuit of the big five, the Nubian is dedicated to providing its clientele with the best of what nature has to offer in a bid to create unforgettable experiences and forge new memories. ... more   less
