Stayed at all three of the Basecamp Explorer camps in the Masai Mara on a great safari tour organised by Transtrek Safaris and out of all three I think this was my favourite.
The camp is small with a mess tent and only five guest tents. The tents are nice with proper beds and even a flushing toilet and an ensuite bucket shower! Each tent has a couple of safari chairs and a table and you can literally sit in front of your tent with a cup of tea and a biscuit and watch the wildlife go past! - Fantastic!
The camp is situated among trees at the bottom of a small ridge, it's eco-friendly - it is run on solar and you can re-charge camera batteries etc and all the waste is re-cycled. The mess tent is nice with comfortable lounge chairs and the food was good. All the staff were friendly and we were very well looked after.
There really is nothing else to do here apart from enjoy the scenery and the wildlife and that is exactly what we did - we went out on game drives and a very early morning bush walk, which was the highlight as we were lucky enough to come across some lions chasing down a baby wildebeest! That was exciting and certainly got the adrenalin pumping as the lions were only 150 meters away!
