GUIDE ON WILDERNESS CAMP IN KENYA
If you would like a sample of how the early pioneers in Africa traveled through the pristine wilderness on long discovery expeditions, then you must try a bush camping holiday in Masai Mara. Located on the sun-kissed plains of the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, dotted with thorny shrubbery and trees that provide some shelter, Wilderness Camp by Basecamp serves as an economy base for guests wanting to explore the private outback of Masai Mara. Enjoy the authentic camping experience where no ultra-frill amenities will stand between you and the spirit of East Africa. Also, AfricanMecca travelers can spend up, close and personal time with the Maasai and learn from them their traditional lore that has evolved from a deep devotion for the environment and her laws. Listen to their deep songs as you relax around the campfire that is lit every evening as the sun bathes the land in a golden glow. Perhaps, when you visit their village when culturally touring the Mara, you could take part in their joyous tribal dances that celebrate life with vigor. Talk to their village elders and revel in their wisdom and also watch the women craft gorgeous bead jewelry that take shape under their experienced hands. The walking safaris you take on your dream trip in Africa, under your Maasai guide's expert supervision will reveal to you a realm that is nothing like the books and pictures you see. It is a land pulsating with life and energy! You could watch the Great Migration that passes through Masai Mara Game Reserve in the months from July through October. Close to 1.5 million wildebeests with thousands of zebras, gazelles and elands cross the plains looking for fresh grass and water.
The Masai Mara National Reserve hosts the Big Five of Africa, the lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant and an unbelievable plethora of herbivores such as elands, topis, giraffes, warthogs, impalas etc. alongside predators like cheetahs, hyenas, caracals, jackals to the fearsome, prehistoric crocodiles that lie on wait for the herds crossing the mighty Mara River. Equally wondrous are over 450 fascinating species of birds, some of which you might spot from your perch in your custom-built safari vehicle. You can also spot the nocturnal residents of the conservancy on night drives (read more on best time to visit the Masai Mara wilderness in Kenya). And if you are looking for an aerial adventure to view the breathtaking topography with its denizens then you must take a balloon safari, a thrilling experience you will long remember of your exploratory safari vacation in Kenya with AfricanMecca. You will be sleeping in the 5 bush tents that offers a stable double or twin beds with soft linen and comfy pillows. Enter the bush tent through its side or front entrance, and you will love its rustic, unpretentious feel with netted windows for ventilation, a small stool and woven, straw mats underfoot for comfort. There is an en-suite bathroom with modest facilities of bush shower and flush toilet. His and her safari chairs are placed beside your tent for relaxing. Enjoy warm bucket showers infused with the healing energy of the sun and firewood while enclosed in a canvas cubicle next to your tent. The only other tent the camp includes is a mess tent where you can lounge, relax and meet other guests. The mess tent also serves as your indoor dining area where adequate meals are served to you. Also, indulge in an al-fresco dining experience when wilderness traveling in Africa under the shade of trees or a velvet night sky blanket of twinkling stars.
