Me and two friends spent Christmas at the Eagle View Lodge in Basecamp. The whole experience was just amazing, from our very talkative driver who took us from Nairobi to Masai Mara, to the stunning view over the Savanna and our guides that had so much knowledge and was eager to share with us. It also seems to be a... More

this is the most incredible place to stay in the most amazing place on earth. All 3 of the camps are ecologically minded lodges that partner with the local Masai community and the resort owners to offer a sustainable world class experience. But let's be real, the most amazing part is the spectacular wilderness and the opportunity to meet the... More

My good friend and I stayed at Basecamp Masai Mara for just 3 days, wishing that we could have stayed longer. From the moment we arrived, I knew that we were in the right place -- picked up at the airport by our Masai guide and on the way spotting 3 cheetahs! Upon arrival, we had our own little luncheon...

A safari with Basecamp Explorer has got to be the ultimate safari experience in our time. Seeing hoards of animals, lion cubs playing, cheetahs on the hunt, hyenas on the prowl, baboons picking lice off each other, crocodiles warming up in the sunlight and all kinds of other sights is an incredible experience. The amazing thing about a safari is... More

A fantastic camp where we couldn't really have asked for more. We stayed here during our safari and are so pleased (we knew nothing about it before arrival...had no idea what to expect). The camp overlooks the Masai Mara and is wonderfully peaceful. All the staff were really helpful and the food was incredible. Stories around the fire in the... More

What an amazing experience!!! We were picked up by our lovely safari guide, Agnes, at the Ol Kiombo Airstrip. On the drive into Basecamp, she pointed out lots of animals grazing in the area. The drives each morning and afternoon were wonderful...never missed seeing animals. Agnes was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and was never bothered by our request to... More

We stayed 2 nights at Basecamp and the one night at Wilderness camp. This was my first safari experience and I was blown away! Our lovely Masai guide Steve was as knowledgeable as as he was enthusiastic about the wildlife and the environment. Although it was low season we had a great safari and saw lots of wildlife, many of... More

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Basecamp. From the 5am coffee delivery to our room before our game drives, to the superb food and amazing staff. We had a wonderful stay and would absolutely recommend Basecamp Explorerer.

Basecamp located at the edge of the masaimara game reserve is so beautiful it hard to describe in words.First of all the nature in terms of wilderness and the wildlife is the best one can get to see. From my tent I could see the antelopes in the savannah and seeing the variety of birds just lazing in the varadah... More
