WE THANK YOU FOR TRAVELING WITH BASECAMP EXPLORER!

It was such a pleasure hosting you, that we have planted a tree for you! We will do the manual labour for you, so all you need to do is sit on your couch and follow our forrest grow digitally or even visit our tree planting in Masai Mara one day!

Our tree planting project is a long term sustainable reforestation project, integrated in the local environment and community. We aim to re-establish the old glorious tropical-savanna vegetation. The Basecamp afroforestation and tree nursery are located around Basecamp Masai Mara, along the Talek River. The area has been transformed into a micro-climate covering about 10 acres. To date the benefits of this initiative are visible and many, some of them being;

There are more than 200 bird species within this area and there is up to 5 inches of biomass within the camp and restoration of the fertility of the area. There are more than 30 species of plants preserved within this area, a number of them not available anymore in this locality. Over 80,000 trees planted to-date is very vital for Carbon offset. The tree planting project offers economic benefits and job creation to the local community.

BY APRIL 2017 WE HAVE PLANTED

85,000

Success of the project goes to our guests, the local community and the families leasing the land for the forestation. Guest at Basecamp Spitsbergen has donated 250 NOK per person over several years for the forestation project and our new Gruve 3 project raised over 5,000 trees in one year.
