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 evening and really worth going on the camp tour to hear about how Eco friendly the camp is...great to see how little impact they are able to have on the environment.

The tents are really well equipped with a really comfortable bed and the outdoor shower was fantastic!

Will definitely return if I come back to Masai Mara!

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 stop and take photos or enjoy watching them in their natural habitat. The food was awesome, very tasty and beautifully presented. The staff at the camp were very accommodating and so enjoyable to talk with. We were even able to get one of the staff to join us in a game of UNO for a little bit. I was most impressed that there are guards on duty to walk you from one area to the other after dark. Basecamp truly knows how to take care of their guests. I will definitely recommend this camp to anyone I know traveling to the area for safari. It was an incredible experience!!!

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 which were known personally to Steve! The camps were very comfortable and the staff unstintingly helpful and friendly. The chefs catered for my vegetarian meals with great flare and I had some of the best meals of our trip to Kenya in the middle of nowhere, I particularly enjoyed the remoteness of Wilderness camp. It was lovely to sit by the camp fire at night and then to lie in bed in the morning watching the wildlife in the distance.

Room Tip: You can ask to stay in the tent Obama stayed in!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Basecamp. From the 5am coffee delivery to our room before our game drives, to the superb food and amazing staff. We had a wonderful stay and would absolutely recommend Basecamp Explorerer.

It was an amazing experience, and I wish I could describe the feeling of being in maasai mara and at the basecamp! The rooms was beautiful and and the whole area was fantastic. We had the best safaris with the best guides! We got to see all the big five and many, many more! The staff was allways polite and service minded. It was absolutely wonderful with the maasais wich followed us from and to our tents after sundown. The best experience of my life! I will definitely come back!
