Wilderness was the second of my Basecamp camps, after two nights at Basecamp Masai Mara. We had a morning game drive, then drove here mid-morning. Wilderness is in the Naboisho Conservancy, to the north of the Masai Mara. The landscape changes: more rocky, denser vegetation.

Wilderness Camp was truly incredible! My husband and I first arrived at Wilderness Camp after having spent a week in Egypt and it was like stepping back in time. The whole camp is pretty rustic, but everything from the breakfast overlooking the plains, to the old-fashioned

"Although the tents are basic, they are extremely comfortable and all have a lovely view out over the valley."
"For the most privacy you could ask for the tent furthest away from the dining tent."
"All the rooms are amazing, there's a limited number of tents so it never feels crowded."
"All the rooms look out at the Mara and giraffes grazing."
"All rooms have great views"
