at the doorstep of Mara national reserve

Basecamp Masai Mara is as much a home as it is a travel destination. Guests become more than visitors, they become part of the Maasai community. Join us around the fireplace, for storytelling and stargazing. This camp is our own cradle of mankind, where our journey once began.

Situated along the Talek river in a tropical forest, you are co-existing with the birds and monkeys in the trees outside your tent.

The Mara National reserve is just across the river, home to the highest density of wildlife in the world, the Big 5, and the 7th wonder of the world- The Wildebeest Migration.

Next to Basecamp Masai Mara is the soon to open Enjoolata Awareness Centre where we invite you in to exhibitions, movies, photo editing and face-to-face meetings with the Maasai.
