"2 sisters on a trip of a lifetime"

3 nights Arrived 24 Jan 2020
"We spent 3 nights at Basecamp Eagle View. The views from our tent (no 4) were stunning across the plains and we regularly saw elephants and giraffes from the tent veranda. The head guide there, Derek, was extremely accommodating and his knowledge on the animals and their behaviour was second to none. We felt very privileged to have him as our guide and learnt an amazing amount in just the 3 days we spent with him.

What an amazing experience we had on safari. We saw so many animals including baby elephants, baby cheetahs and a 6 month old leopard to name but a few.

We had excellent advice from Olivia at Expert Africa who worked tirelessly with us helping us to find a camp and holiday within our budget. We could not have asked for a better holiday. One observation, however, was that the food we had at the camp was very cosmopolitan and not of a Kenyan influence which seemed a shame. We would have liked to have at least had the option to sample typical Kenyan food but nothing was offered. We were surprised to be offered pasta carbonara and spaghetti Bolognese in the middle of the Mara! Having said that, the food we had was plentiful and tasty.

Our trip through the local village of Talek was most interesting stopping at a local girls boarding school to learn about their project in Talek to keep young teenage girls in education. The local womens' Arts Centre at Basecamp near Talek was certainly worth a visit as well. Our morning out in that area was a great way to spend a few hours in the local area and gave us an insight into how the local people lived.

I cannot think of anything we would have changed on our holiday and our thanks to Olivia for her perseverance in finding us something we could afford!

Well done Expert Africa, your services really are a credit to you." See all these reviews: 3n in Kenya

"Basecamp Eagle View review"

2 nights Arrived 18 Feb 2014
"I traveled solo on my trip back to Kenya and cannot fault the efficiency and concern of all the arrangements by Ellie at Expert Africa.

I have stayed at game lodges many other times, in Kenya,Tanzania and Namibia. Basecamp Eagles View,and my visit surpassed, all the others very good thorough they were.

The individual lodges were excellent with large beds, perfect 'facilities' ( even a hot water bottle!) and a veranda and views to die for; the main reception areas were beautifully presented; the Masai staff were all exceptional in their warmth, concern and efficiency; the food varied and excellent. Above all, and a reason for staying here even had everything else been less than adequate, was the setting overlooking the valley and plains 100 ft or more below us with wandering giraffe, water buck, antelope to inspect with binoculars and a beer in hand.

The game drives were a joy; as much good game as you could wish for and plenty of it; stunning and varied scenery and the exceptional pleasure of rarely seeing another vehicle this despite staying stationary for an hour on two separate occasions, once surrounded by at least fifty grazing elephants and the other by nine lazy lions all a touching distance away, in the setting sunset.( In the Masai Mara you would have been in a vehicle park with that sort of game!)

Steve, my guide and driver was an amiable, knowledgeable and friendly companion dressed always in full Masai outfit. I could not have wished for better. His patience and skill in setting up those two particular game experiences was exceptional. I loved every minute of it but almost the most memorable was the last early morning walk where he collected three more of the staff and the four of them, dressed in red and beads and armed with lethal looking throwing spears, escorted us; we were safe as houses and never at risk, their red outfits enough in themselves to warn away any hungry lion!

I could not recommend too highly this exceptional camp. If your interest also lies in ecological issues, then the camp must be one of the most efficient with recycling everywhere, their power from the sun; indeed it has been short listed for an International Award.

I am grateful for a really memorable visit and shall return!" See all these reviews: 10n in Kenya
