Our philosophy

more than travel

The Basecamp Explorer Foundation is a non-profit organization that works with the local community in the Masai Mara to protect nature. Together with Basecamp Explorer Kenya, we are one of the most innovative and renowned tour operators in sustainable tourism.

Our isolated and unique base battles are the perfect starting point to experience Svalbard’s wild and untouched nature. Throughout the year, we arrange trips and expeditions for individual travelers, and we tailor programs for groups and companies. Our guests get an authentic and unique experience, and are active participants when we are on tour. Together we get the good feeling of mastery in the Arctic, and together we contribute to better conditions in Kenya. Read more about our projects below.
