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.

Dinner is a memorable time of the day, and the option of where to dine is up to you. The camp’s restaurant is located right next to the Talek River with amazing views over the Savannah. Since the restaurant is for communal use, we request all our guests to be courteous towards the people they are sharing the space with and keep the mobile phones off while enjoying their meals at the restaurant (it is a Mobile-free Zone). We extend this request to the lounge area, where we kindly ask all our guests to keep their phones in silent mode.
