Classic Migration Safari

The great wildebeest migration constitutes the last surviving multi-species migration on the planet making this natural wonder of the world even more wondrous. Capture on film the incredible wildlife and immerse yourself in the rich culture of the friendly locals while staying at Basecamp Masai Mara.

Day 1

As you arrive at Masai Mara our Maasai Guides are ready to take you on your very first game drive! This is the best time to see the wildebeest migration. Set off in our open 4×4 Safari Land Cruisers. Arrive at Basecamp Masai Mara in time to settle into your room and enjoy some lunch before an afternoon safari. Enjoy the amazing wildlife from the comfort of your tent, the fig-tree platform, or while lazing over a drink in the open-air bar. In the afternoon meet your Maasai Guide for your afternoon game drive. As the sun sets, return to camp for dinner, followed by story-telling around the fireplace.

Day 2-3

Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast before heading out on a full-day safari across the Masai Mara National Reserve. Catch the action at the crossing point and stalk the herds just like the lions and the cheetahs, capturing them with your lens and in your heart. There is never a dull moment on the savannah. Return to camp at sundown for dinner followed by relaxation at the campfire as you tell of your experiences on the African wilderness.

Following a hearty breakfast, our Naturalist Maasai guide will take you on a camp walk. The camp has a lot of eco-initiatives that you may wish to learn about during your stay. Visit the Enjoolata Awareness Center where we invite all guests to an exciting learning experience about the Maasai culture. While here, you are welcome to explore and purchase the products of the Maasai Mamas products. Learn about Basecamp’s reforestation project that is intended to re-wild the Mara. At a minimal fee, we encourage our guests to contribute to offsetting their carbon footprint by planting a tree at a minimal fee.
