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

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
