I found Basecamp Explorer online and with all of the options available in the Mara I wasn't sure how to make the choice of where to set up camp. There is no doubt that we made the right decision. All the positive reviews are the real story. Basecamp gives travellers a chance to step into a community where we can focus on the beauty of our planet and its people. Agnes...your safari expertise was some of the best we experienced in all of Africa. We witnessed cheetah hunts, saw several prides of lions from a stone's throw away from us! We saw hundreds of zebra, and countless elephants, Cape buffalo, hyenas, giraffes, gazelles, and on and on. We had the privilege of visiting all three camps and participating in the many amazing adventures offered by Basecamp. We visited the local Maasai village, sang with our Maasai friends around the campfire, enjoyed a walking Safari as a family and watched the giant moon rise over the Mara while we gathered together at wilderness camp. This is a special place that offers wonderful and sustainable growth for the people, the land and the wildlife. We should all encourage our global travel community to experience this kind of tourism...the world needs more of it. Thank you again to all the awesome people we met - Aggie (Kalena) - you are a very special person, Patrick, Chef Simile, Andrew, Johnson, and the warriors who watched over us each night. We hope we'll meet again.
