From my tent I could see the antelopes in the savannah and seeing the variety of birds just lazing in the varadah... More

I have never experienced anything like this before, and after traveling to quite a few places, this is one of the most amazing places I have ever been to! The atmosphere at the camp is just unique; the friendly masais taking care of you, monkeys running around, and also being able to enjoy the delicious food outside with animal sounds... More

This camp, and its atmosphere, is one of a kind. It is hard to start explaining how amazing the stay at this camp was - you need to go experience it for your self. Not only do you feel really safe and taken care of by the masais, hosts and the staff you are also served delicious food, taken on... More

We were picked up at the Olkiombo airstrip by our guide, who after a paying our park fees drove us to the camp. En route we say quite an array of animals, including a small elephant herd,... More

I travelled to basecamp with fellow students, and we all had an amazing time. The service and atmosphere is great, and the Masai's are so friendly and take really good care of you. They also have so much knowledge about the wildlife in Kenya, and we learned so much. I will definitely come back as soon as possible with friends... More
