Base Camp, Maasai Mara

The camp is fittingly referred to as the ‘’mother of all camps’’ and it is ran by the Masai staff. It is as much a home as it is a tourism destination and at the camp, guests become more than just visitors as they become part of the Masai community.

The camp has greatly done an effort in order to revive the natural habitat through planting about 115,000 indigenous trees around the Talek River.

Consequently the camp has turned into a tree lover’s paradise and a haven for birdlife. Each morning a symphony of birdsong will wake you up as the sun rises over the worldly-popular Masai Mara National Park, which is a habitant to the greatest gathering of wild animals on the planet especially during July to October.

The village of Talek is close to the camp and its community has been a close partner of the base-camp since the beginning. In and around Talek, guests will encounter authentic rural life with all its mesmerizing vibrancy and cultural components.

In the surrounding areas, the camp has initiated various community programs with the aim of empowering local people through capacity building, awareness raising and vocational training.

While staying at the camp, guests are encouraged to visit the BMB handicraft centre located next to reception where they can plant a tree in the camp’s tree plantation.

The camp offers fifteen Double Riverside Tents all situated along the banks of the Talek River in the Masai 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, guests are certain to wake to a symphony of birdsong while staying at the camp.

All the tents are fitted with bio-flush toilets, solar-heated safari showers, and a private balcony where guests can get clear views of the Masai Mara. The camp boosts WIFI for the guests to access internet.
