Basecamp Maasai Mara 4.5

Basecamp Masai Mara is as much a home as it is a travel destination. Guests become more than visitors, they become part of the Maasai community. Join us around the fireplace, for storytelling and stargazing. This camp is our own cradle of mankind, where our journey once began.

Overview

Situated along the Talek river in a tropical forest, you are co-existing with the birds and monkeys in the trees outside your tent.

The Masai Mara National Reserve is just across the river, home to the highest density of wildlife in the world, the Big 5, and the 7th wonder of the world- The Wildebeest Migration.

Next to Basecamp Masai Mara is the Enjoolata Awareness Centre where we invite you into exhibitions, movies, photo editing and face-to-face meetings with the Maasais providing a deeper understanding to anyone who seeks knowledge about this fascinating culture and place.

At Basecamp Masai Mara we offer seventeen double riverside tents, all built along the banks of the Talek River, the natural border to the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The dense riverbed foliage allows for maximum privacy and comfort, without compromising the view of the Masai Mara National Reserve. With more than 286 identified bird species, you are certain to wake to a symphony of birdsong while staying at Basecamp Masai Mara.

The camp provides an excellent base for exploring nature conservation like the Basecamp Nature Forest and Community-based initiatives like the Masai Beading Center (Basecamp Masai Brand) to promote & preserve local culture and talent. While here experience a combination of authentic hosting and cultural immersion in the company of local Maasai hosts and guides.
