Basecamp Explorer is committed to ensuring that everyone visiting our camp is safe both our guests and our staff. We hope you will have a safe and an authentic safari experience in the Savannah!
WHILE AT THE CAMP
We operate five non-fenced camps, and every so often wild animals are found in and around the camp area. Attacks by wild animals are very rare, although there are no guarantees. To ensure your safety and a great safari experience we have Maasai guards around the clock monitoring the movements of wild animals in and around the camp area. Please be sure to adhere to the camp’s instructions. After dinner, our experienced Maasai guards will escort you to your tent for the night. If you are scheduled for an early morning safari activity, our guards will pick you up from your tent on time and escort you to the reception. Please do not leave your tent or remain on the balcony during or after dark until the following morning. We provide a radio, flashlight and a whistle inside your tent for use in case you feel threatened. Our staff will show you how to use the radio in case of an emergency, and our guards will respond to your radio call immediately.
WHILE ON A WALKING SAFARI
Before you embark on a walking safari, we will brief you on the dos and don’ts. Please adhere to the instructions at all times. This is one of the best ways to experience nature up close and you will be sure to have an unforgettable time.
WHILE ON A GAME DRIVE
Please do not leave the vehicle without the guides’ knowledge, and stay in the vehicle at all times unless advised otherwise. For your own safety, do not hang your hand outside the window during the game drive.
