Gemma Pic

With a Kenyan father, Indian grandparents, and a Portuguese surname, travel is in my blood. I am enthralled by Africa and would happily talk about this diverse continent’s wildlife, cultures, and experiences all day, every day.

Basecamp Mara Overview

Basecamp Masai Mara offers seventeen double riverside tents built along the Talek Riverbank, the natural border to the Masai Mara National Reserve. The dense foliage here offers maximum privacy and comfort without compromising the view of the Reserve. With close to 300 identified bird species you are certain to wake to a symphony of birdsong. The camp is an excellent base for exploring the Basecamp Nature Forest and Community-based initiatives like the Masai Beading Center (Basecamp Masai Brand) to promote and preserve local culture. While you are here you can experience a combination of authentic hosting and cultural immersion in the company of your local Maasai hosts and guides. Basecamp Mara is a great option for those looking for exceptional wildlife on a responsible budget. All tents are fitted with bio-flush toilets, solar-heated safari showers, and a private balcony, where you have a direct view of the Masai Mara. Double tents offer king-size double or twin beds, a bathroom featuring bio-flush toilets and two solar-heated showers, one inside and one open-air, and a private deck with views of the river bed and Reserve.
