This was our second family trip to Basecamp Kenya. Our previous stay in 2007 was great, but this time the right word is fantastic ! We had it all - Mara River crossing, buffalo fighting lions, elephants playing and scaring of lions, cheetahs, reinho and leopard. Quality of camps are great, make sure you visit them all (Eagle View, Wilderness... More

I had the pleasure to go for a 4 nights safari trip at the Basecamp Masai and the Eagle view in april. Everything, from A to Z was perfectly organized. My guide was very patient. Service was what you expect from a 5 stars hotel… Loved the fact that the camps are eco-responsible.

Two nights at Masai Mara, 3 at Eagle View. Everything flawless. Perfect weather, lots of wildlife, lots of friendly people, outstanding service. Hot water bottle in the bed scared the heck out of me the first night but, oh, how nice!

Stayed for 2 nights at Basecamp at the end of the dry season in late Feb. The staff ensured that I had a fantastic time, enjoying some great safaris, visiting local sites and eating plenty of food. The accommodation is made up of 5 star permanent tents, which are a creative mix of canvas and permanent structure. All the tents... More

My Dad and I enjoyed three nights at Basecamp Eagle View. Walking into the camp takes your breath away when you realize you overlook the Mara. It's nestled in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy. The views, staff, food, wildlife, rooms were all five star--pretty spectacular place. Was impressed by everything and I hope to go back to experience all three camps... More

Spent four wonderful days on safari. One night at Basecamp Explorer and two nights at Eagle View. This was an all around incredible experience.

What an experience! A total concept bundling Basecamp Masai Mara, Dorobo and Eagle View made this the perfect inline safari tour for us all. Thanks a million to Ton Kay, Dorobo and all the professional staff who made this an unforgettable visit to masai- country! Tone & Jan Christophersen

The eco camp of Basecamp is a very special experience. Amazing settings with tents overlooking a crocodile-river with the game reserve but meters away from the tent's terrace allows for viewing animals coming down to drink with a cocktail in your hand. One night we even saw an elephant just across! The camp is run by local Masai who are... More
