IT’S FINALLY HERE! WELCOME TO LEOPARD HILL!
Leopard Hill is our latest addition to the Basecamp family. The camp’s location offers the closest proximity to a watering hole in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy and thus an unhindered view of the activities of the local wildlife while enjoying the modern luxury of the camp.
The tent architecture is inspired by round Maasai houses called Manyattas. This offers an almost 360-degree view of the surroundings, from your bed towards the Fig Tree and the water holes and from the bathroom to the back. The design of the camp was done by the Norwegian architect Ajas Mellbye. Each tent has it’s own theme, while the ambiance is set by the furniture and decor of African and Indian origin.
What makes Leopard Hill accommodation truly special, is the adjustable motorized roof of the tents, which provides an unhindered view of the African night sky. And yes, you are still separated from the nocturnal wildlife by a nearly invisible mosquito net.
Leopard Hill camp is watched over by a giant fig tree. This twin tree, dubbed Double Fig Tree, was struck by lightning in the 1950’s, as told by the local people. The tree was splintered in two, giving it it’s unusual shape. Build almost under this Fig Tree, the camp has the perfect sunrises. While enjoying your morning coffee on the terrace, you can witness as the sun rises over the eastern horizon, sky blazing in magnificent colors, completed by the majestic silhouette of the Double Fig Tree.
