We stayed for three nights at BaseCamp and loved every moment. The food was great, the staff were wonderful. We stayed in a tent with the option of the indoor or outdoor facilities. To shower ourside with Kingfishers watching you is a really amazing experience. We did self-drive game drives, and being able to park the car in the Masai... More

Have been staying six nights, at three different basecamp-camps. Three nights at Basecamp, one night at Wilderness and two nights at Eagle View. There are plenty of things that made the stay unforgettable - and some of them are: The food - must be one of the best kitchens in Kenya. The Guides - that were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, funny... More

We stayed 2 nights at Basecamp main camp and 2 nights at Eagle View. Both camps where awesome, the staff was superb and even the food was outstanding. Eagle view is more of everything at it is definitely worth the extra money. We where knocked out by the food quality, three course lunch and dinner of Michelin standard. Eagle view... More

We absolutely loved both camps! July is a perfect month for safari's in Masai Mara, the food was excellent, all of the staff is so friendly and welcoming. The rooms are luxury camping tents, clean and comfortable, above and beyond what I expected. I love the turndown service at night with hot water bottles in your bed. Can't wait to... More

I stayed here fir a couple if nights to explore the national park and i could not have chosen a better place. I need to say my first impression was a little bit disappointing as my previous lodges in Kenya were more detailed and well decorated, plus my first lunch was not of good quality. But, everyone on the lodge... More

Our family of four spent six days in three different Basecamp camps; Basecamp Masai Mara, Wilderness Camp and Eagle's View (the two latter within Naibosho Conservancy). It can really be recommended to do this complete tour. The three camps are very different - althoug they all hold high standards regarding accomodation (luxury tents), food and service. The landscape and wildlife... More

Basecamp was incredible. They did a fabulous job from booking to the return trip to Nairobi and everything in between. It felt like every single detail was well planned and organized. The tent was comfortable, with a fabulous deck with a view of the river. The game drivers were amazing and our guide was very knowledgable of the animals and... More

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
