Basecamp Wilderness Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

Nestled around the Saddle Valley Rim, Basecamp Wilderness Camp provides an authentic safari escape into the wilds of the stunning and private Mara Naboisho Conservancy.

Accommodations at the camp consist of eight simple yet comfortable canvas tents. Each tent is furnished with double beds dressed in fresh white linens and fluffy duvets. The separate bathroom unit features bucket shower heated upon request and a bio-flush toilet. The tents are spread out along the valley for added privacy and include an outdoor seating area.

The camp is located within the 200,000-acre private Naboisho Conservancy on the border of the larger Maasai Mara. The Conservancy boasts not only a higher density of animals than the Maasai Mara but one the highest concentrations of lions in the world. Around one hundred of the big cats live here. The area also has an impressive number of elephant, giraffe, wildebeest, and zebra as well as the rare and elusive African wild dog. Moreover, the Conservancy provides a vital corridor for the little-known Loita Migration, which sees up to 5,000 wildebeest and 1,000 zebra move though the area annually from the Mara Reserve to the Loita Plains in the east.

The camp offers several exciting activities to choose from. Morning and afternoon game drives take in the conservancy and neighboring Maasai Mara. Because of the conservancy’s exclusivity, it lacks the heavy foot traffic of the other reserves for a quiet and uncrowded adventure. Leisurely one or two-hour bush walks are tailored to guest’s desires and explore the plains on foot, discovering the flora and fauna missed from the vehicles. At the end of the afternoon game drive, guests can refresh themselves with a cocktail while soaking in the glories of an African sunset.

At the heart of the camp, a romantic dining tent includes a sitting room that evokes the nostalgia of a by-gone area with its deep leather seats, selection of books, and vintage gramophone. Delicious meals are cooked by local Maasai chefs. Bush dining is an unforgettable way to enjoy a chef-created meal in the heart of the wilderness accompanied by a glass of fine wine while watching the local Maasai people sing and dance.
