We were extremely lucky to spend 2 nights at Wilderness without any other guests. The camp is small in any case (8 tents I believe), and our family of 4 had 2, so it felt like a private safari. Lions roared around our tents at night, the Maasai guards armed with spears give us comfort. The walking safari in the morning spectacular. We almost managed to find lions by following their trail in the morning dew. The tents are wonderful. The central tent is straight out of Out of Africa!

We had a wonderful stay in the wilderness camp. We was taken care of from landing in Nairobi to takeoff from Nairobi. We stayed in the camp for 4 nights. The quality of the tents extended all our expectations. The location of the camp is unique. One day we saw a geopad hunting while we where eating lunch. We felt very close to the animals, but also super safe. The walking safari was also a highlight. The food we got was so good, much better than the food we got in a 5-star hotel-resort in Mombasa. The chefs deserve real boat! Our guide name Bonny was really extraordinary. He was with us every day, and became a good friend. His driving skills and knowledge about the animals made it a experience we will never forget. Thank you! The days where full of activities, and their slogan "come as a guest, leave as a friend" is actually true. Would recommend wilderness camp to everyone!

Visited Masai Mara in january 2020. Lived at Wilderness Camp for four nights. The Wilderness Camp is very nice because of the short distance to the animals. We saw a Chita hunting from our lunchtable! The food was amazing. We came from a five star hotel in Diani Beach and the food at Wilderness Camp was much better. Our guide was Bonny and he was very much the best! You should ask for him as your guide. We had five perfect days with Basecamp Explorer. It blew our high expectations.

Stayed just one night, wish it had been two. This camp is simple but extremely comfortable. Nice furniture in the tent and dining room, full bathroom in tent. The main difference is tents are on the ground and not built on platforms like other camps. It is closer to really fancy camping, which I really liked. This camp feels much more relaxed, and they are not trying so hard to be fancy for the tourists. The guys working in the camp were super friendly and relaxed. The Masai staff felt like they could be more authentically themselves and wanted to just hang out with us by the campfire. Food was outstanding. When we departed, we walked to the next camp, Eagleview, and the walk took about an hour. It was really fun. It’s good to support wilderness camp and Base Camp company because it’s a community project so the jobs and money benefits the local community. They are doing great work. We saw all the wildlife right on the Conservancy, including lions , cheetah, elephants, hippos and much more.
