Wilderness Basecamp

Richard's Camp

Masai Mara, Kenya

Prices From: $470

Richard's Camp is a traditional tented camp in true African safari style with a few modern surprises. Situated in a conservation area northwest of The Masai Mara Game Reserve, with riverine forest and short grass plains, this area is renowned for the most exceptional big game viewing worldwide.

Each individually decorated tent has either twin or double beds with triple rooms available for families upon request. The solar system provides clean, silent power and 24-hour light to all the tents. All of the 7 large and spacious custom-designed tents feature an en-suite flush toilet and shower - rarely has sleeping under canvas been made so comfortable.

As the weather almost always permits, meals are most often enjoyed outdoors under Kenyan skies. During those rare rainy or chilly evenings, dining moves indoors, adjacent to the beautiful, cozy sitting room with a roaring fire. Enjoy flopping on the sofa to read or just relax. At the end of the day, guests can indulge in an open-air Victorian bath tucked away in the forest, surrounded by flickering candles and the sounds of the bush.

The Masai Mara is located in South Western Kenya. Together with Tanzania's Serengeti it forms one of the worlds most diverse and spectacular eco-systems.

The camp is located approximately 180 kms West of Nairobi (about a 4 1/2 hour drive). We have a small airfield adjacent to the camp for private charters, or within 20 minutes drive, the large airstrip is located for scheduled air services.
