Your journey through the Basecamp Circuit

Going on safari with Basecamp Explorer is the ultimate way of witnessing the natural wonders of the Maasai Mara. For more than 16 years we have focused on leaving a positive footprint both in the places where we work and in the hearts and the minds of the people we work with. Our close partnership with the Maasai community allows us to create authentic safari experiences for our guests.

 

Since we began our journey in 1998, Basecamp Explorer Kenya has welcomed three new additions to our family of safari camps: Basecamp Maasai Mara, Eagle View Camp and Wilderness Camp. Our mother camp, Basecamp Maasai Mara, is situated bordering the Maasai Mara National Reserve, while Eagle View Camp and Wilderness Bush Camp are located within the Naboisho Conservancy, a 20,000 hectare (50,000 acre) nature conservancy privately owned by the Maasai people.    

Our camps have been carefully designed to expose our guests to different dimensions of the safari experience – as it was, as it is, and as we imagine it can become. Even though each camp offers something unique, the Basecamp signature of first-class service, exquisite wildlife experiences and authentic cultural encounters remains throughout. Together our three camps form an integrated sequence of complimentary experiences, which we have named the Basecamp Circuit.

Our aim is that journeying through our Basecamp Circuit will leave our guests filled with joy, a sense of purpose and, ultimately, a longing to participate. 

Arrive as a guest, stay as a friend, leave as a partner.

Masai Mara

Basecamp Masai Mara – fittingly referred to as the ‘mother of all camps’ by our staff - is where our story started. Lovingly run by our Maasai staff – BCMM is as much a home as it is a tourism destination. Here guests become more than visitors - they become part of the Maasai community.

Wilderness camp

Wilderness is our nostalgic tribute to the safaris of the early explorers and safari pioneers. Free from artificial luxury and modern disturbances, Wilderness is safari as it was meant to be. Tucked away deep inside the incomparable Saddle Valley, it is only you, the Maasai, the wildlife, and the stars.
