Absolutely Awesome!
Absolutely loved our time at Basecamp. The location is perfect, at the edge of the Masai Mara, we heard the lions at night, while sleeping. The staff all of them, were so friendly and helpful from the front staff to the night guards. Camp on a river, so you see the animals come for water, open view to see them roaming across the river! Perfect setting! So peaceful! The best cook Enoc! You don't want to miss his food! We booked 2 nights and ended up staying three! Loved the Masai Mara, loved this camp and it's people!

Topp kvalitet
Dette var et meget hyggelig sted å tilbringe et par døgn. Personalet, teltene, bushdinner var alt av topp kvalitet. Dyrelivet er det lite å utsette på i Masai Mara og det ble noen minneverdige timer ute på slettene.

Mycket trevlig camp, stort tält med utsikt över floden och solnedgången. Mycket skön säng och kudde. God mat, trevlig service och bra läge för fantastisk safari.

Hotel precioso
Personal y hotel encantador. No puedo decir nada negativo, una experiencia inolvidable, volvere con total seguridad. El sonido de los animales y como esta integrado en la naruraleza es incomparable. Lo recomiendo cien por cien. Nunca olvidare la sorpresa que me hicieron por mi cumpleaños y el trato tan exquisito, nos hemos llevado verdaderos amigos del lugar.
