Magic of the Migration

4 days migration safari to Basecamp Maasai Mara and Wilderness Camp

Experiencing the Great Migration with Basecamp adds another layer to witnessing this Natural Wonder of the World. A Safari with our Maasai Guides is a life-changing experience that will provide you with a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the intricate details of the Maasai Mara ecosystem. No one knows the Mara like the Maasai: they are the true specialists.

Day 1

As you disembark your plane at Olkiombo Airstrip our friendly and knowledgeable Maasai Guides – the true experts – are ready to take you on your very first Game Drive in one of our tailor-made 4×4 Safari Land Cruisers. The abundant wildlife of the Maasai Mara, include thriving populations of lions, elephants, cheetah and leopards. Arrive at Basecamp Maasai Mara – our very own cradle of mankind – for lunch, freshly prepared by our trained team of Maasai chefs. After lunch wander around the camp compound and reconnect with your well travelled self, while you take in the tranquility of Basecamp Masai Mara. At 4pm meet your Maasai Guide for another aspect of your wildebeest migration vacation, an afternoon game drive. Explore new dimensions of the Savannah during your Afternoon Game Drive. Return to Basecamp Masai Mara in time for a mouth-watering three-course dinner, followed by story sharing and stargazing around the fireplace. When you are ready, retire to your tent and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the savannah.

Day 3

Wake up at dawn to join your Maasai Guide for a Bird Walk along the riverbed. Enjoy the gorgeous foliage around the Talek River, home to more than 286 different bird species. After breakfast meet your Naturalist Maasai Guide for a Camp Walk around the camp compound. During your walk you will be introduced to some of the operational elements that have made Basecamp a leading pioneer in responsible tourism. Your Camp Walk includes a visit to the Basecamp Maasai Brand (BMB) workshop, one of our capacity-building projects that employ 118 women. Complete your Camp Walk by planting a tree in our Tree Plantation, just like the Obama family. After a freshly prepared lunch, served underneath the trees overlooking the Maasai Mara National Reserve, prepare to journey on to the next destination of your safari through the Basecamp Circuit: Wilderness Camp. Tucked away deep inside the incomparable Saddle Valley in Naboisho Conservancy, Wilderness Camp has been designed as a tribute to safari as it was meant to be. Arrive at Wilderness Camp and relax with a nice cup of tea or coffee in your tent. In the late afternoon, meet your guide for an afternoon game drive in Mara Naboisho Conservancy. 20,000 hectares of pristine wildlife territory now believed to have one of the highest lion populations on earth. As the sun sets on the horizon, your guide will set up a sundowner under a suitable acacia tree. Enjoy a night game drive and spot the nocturnal animals of the Savannah. Return to camp for dinner and enjoy the contrast of eating first-class cuisine in the middle of the wilderness. After dinner, gather around the fireplace to listen to the meditative rhythm of the Maasai chanting.
