More than travel
At Basecamp Explorer we invite you on a global journey from the high arctic to equator. Welcome to our basecamps in Svalbard and Masai Mara, each with a special story and distinct character. Hosting and guiding you to nature based adventures among wild animals in exotic wilderness is our passion.
At Basecamp Explorer we are wildlife conservationists.
Your visit alone will help our work.
In close-up range to the highest density of wild animals in the world, we have five safari camps, hosted by the Maasai. Together they form a circuit of complementary experiences, and a travel in time. The Maasai know the savannah like the back of their hands. Going with them, there is a surprise for you behind every corner.
We have five places to stay in Svalbard. Together our hotels and lodges form a meaningful circuit of complementary experiences. The basecamps are small, intimate and remote. Traveling under midnight sun or northern lights, you will experience that out here in the wilderness, there is Arctic silence.

WE DO MORE THAN WE TELL
Basecamp Explorer Foundation was established to fight the extinction of wildlife by teaming up with the local communities. We firmly believe that in the Masai Mara area of Kenya, the key to success is to work together with the people who own and inhabit the land. This is reflected in everything we do.
Basecamp Explorer’s responsible tourism business supports projects like reforestation, waste management, empowering women and youth and securing land for the wildlife to flourish.
