We underestimate the time it would take us to driver from Mbale Uganda to Basecamp (do not follow Google Maps!!) There was a much better and smoother way to get to the camp than the one Google Maps told us to use - so I recommend you do NOT take the road into Talek gate but rater come through Oloololo Gate where the roads are much much better then drive through the park to ge tto Base Camp. Thank goodness the Camp Manager Seif came to our rescue as we were lost in the dark in the middle of nowhere!!

An incredible experience and a beautiful camp awaited us once we got there. Wonderful setting with great safari tents and delicious food. Very good value for money.

Would totally come back and stay here - just will drive through a different way. Also if you are thinking about going to Serengeti from here - do NOT go to Sand River Gate which is closed. They may let you through but you will have an absolute nightmare with immigration. So you are better off driving to Isebania border to Tanzania and entering the Serengeti through the Western gate.

I spent two days at the Basecamp Masai Mara and it was amazing. The staff were very nice and knowledgable, the rooms were beautiful- exactly what you want out of a safari trip. Not to luxurious but still very nice and somewhat romantic. Even if you are traveling alone. lol Food was good, game drives we saw everything but the Leopard in the two days and the migration had already left the Maasi. I would highly reccomend this place to others, they have a very good set up here.

We stayed two days at Basecamp Masai Mara, two days at Eagle View and one day at Doboro Wilderness camp. Each place had its unique atmosphere and style and all of them offered fantastic wildlife spotting and safari experiences. Our safari guides were very skilled in animal spotting and we had interesting discussions about the development of the masai culture in the modern world. The sustainability profile of the camps are excellent with solar eletricity and circular water and suage systems!

Coming to Basecamp Masai Mara was just the perfect experience. We were met by a very nice Masai guide with tons of experience and knowledge of the area (we covered "the big 5" in less than 24 hours). The accommodation was great, with spacious and well kept tents. The food was tasty, and the staff were very welcoming. This combined with the unique landscape truly made this a once-in-a-liftetime experience for us.

We also stayed at the sister-camp: Eagle View, which was equally amazing. Would recommend doing both, as you get two different experiences, both places getting very close to the action while being taken very well care of.

Don't miss out on this opportunity!

We will never forget Basecamp Masai Mara!
Bring your children. We had great days with the best food and a fantastic staff. Safari game drives are thrilling and rewarding, and the guides at Basecamp Masai Mara are well trained, attention to details and most of all professionalism in everything they do!

Overall the experience was outstanding and deffinitely will be included in my list of places to be visited again in future.
