What Does "Basecamp" Mean?
Traditionally, a basecamp provides supplies, shelter and a communication base. At Global Basecamps we’ve built our approach to travel on that foundation: creating a virtual basecamp that allows travelers to renew and extend their sense of adventure with a safety net provided by our headquarters in California. From the planning stages onward, Global Basecamps strives to create a customized travel experience as unique as the traveler. With individual basecamps (centered on unique, locally owned properties, hotels and lodges), one can venture beyond a “vacation” into a journey, an adventure and a cultural exploration.
Global Basecamps is dedicated to inspiring, empowering and simplifying independent travel to the world's most beautiful and important destinations. We firmly believe that conservation and capitalism can work hand in hand to protect the planet's cultural and ecological resources and that independent travel furthers the exchange of the ideas, understanding and common heritage necessary to create positive change.
