a rain forest safari camp

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 star gazing. 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, offering the highest density of wild animals in the world.

Not far from the camp you will find the village of Talek, where you can encounter authentic rural life.
