Base Camp

Every sunrise as the tent zipper was drawn, a drama unfolded on the savannah as far as the eyes could see - antelopes, zebras and wildebeest grazing, the air filled with low resonant grunts, and as I sip my morning espresso on the tent porch.... I find myself humming Louis A's little tune: "... and I think to myself, what a wonderful world.

Basecamp Masai Mara provides 12 spacious and luxurious tents, bordering the Masai Mara National reserve, hidden away under thatched roofs on a lush peninsula in the Talek River, with spectacular views of the savannah. You will have your own veranda overlooking the river, and the bathroom ensuite with a hot solar heated shower open to the sky. Enjoy the amazing wildlife from the comfort of your tent, the fig-tree platform, or while lazing over a drink in the open-air bar.
Enjoy game viewing while wining and dining right from the comfort and convenience of your dining table set within the grounds of this camp. Support community initiatives by visiting the Maasai ',Mamas', where the talented women from the community develop Fair-trade beaded and leather merchandise under the ',Basecamp Mara Brand',.
