The Basecamp Maasai Brand

EMPOWERING DISADVANTAGED MAASAI WOMEN

The Basecamp Maasai Brand (BMB) is a community-based handicraft workshop that empowers disadvantaged Maasai women and preserves the Maasai beading tradition at the same time. The fair trade certified BMB enables Maasai women to apply their beading skills to produce and sell their handcrafted products, providing them with a reliable source of their own income. Basecamp Masai Brand was initiated by Basecamp Explorer in 2013 as part of its responsible tourism operations and community based development

Eat This! Culinary Training

EAT THIS! IS NOT AN ORDINARY COOKBOOK

This is is a cookbook dedicated to passion, courage, and possibilities! The cook book is a fundraising initiative that was curated by Benson Ole Soit the executive chef at Basecamp Explorer in Masai Mara. Benson is a self-made success story who learned how to cook through experimentation and couragment by Basecamp managers. In return, the proceeds from his cookbook is used towards educating a passionate young Maasai in the local culinary school.

To create more “Enjoolata moments”, Basecamp Explorer Kenya will establish the Enjolaata Awerness and Training Centre in the midst of Basecamp Explorer's birthplace – the Basecamp Maasai Mara in Talek. The philosophy of the center is founded on our belief that the best ideas, solutions and results are generated in a community of likeminded people.
