A community visit is a cultural tour where guests have an opportunity to meet local people and enjoying the cross-cultural interaction.
At Basecamp, local community visits have become a memorable affair for our guests just as their first sighting of a lion, or leopard. We are committed to ensuring all of our guests return home from their trip with a real sense of the places they visited.
The main activity during a community visit is a guided community walk during which you will check out the different interesting sites that our local Masai guide will suggest. The guide will give you all the information you may need to know about the places you will visit. During the community walk, you visit places like the local schools, health centers, homesteads as well as the market. In addition, you’ll learn about ancient traditions as well as contemporary struggles and adaptations to modern life.
Many of the places that the guests visit have links to Basecamp Explorer either through staff members working or living there or their having been supported by the company over many years. For both the children and our guests it is always a heart-warming and inspirational session while on community tour.
