The Saruni Basecamp Group strives to not only leave a positive footprint on the environment we operate in but also endeavour to give back to the community and the landscape through Basecamp Explorer Foundation Kenya. This concept allows you to pick the level of help best suited for you. You can start by sharing our content on social media, like our Facebook or Instagram pages.

For a greater impact, travel to one of our lodges and camps in Kenya and leave a positive footprint through responsible tourism. You can choose one of our safaris here.

You can also donate to Basecamp Explorer Foundation Kenya ongoing projects that need support:

Pardamat Conservation Area management and leases in the heart of the Mara; The Basecamp Maasai Brand (BMB) women’s cooperative in Talek; Enjoolata Awareness and Training Centre community events in Talek; Higher Education Scholarships; Livelihood training and Rights Awareness; Endangered Species monitoring (wild-dog, lion, cheetah, vultures, eagles, pangolins); Equipping of Community Rangers; Community Water Projects; Marine Conservation on Kenya’s northern coast; protecting Nyekweri Forest in western Mara, or you can also make a general contribution to the Basecamp Explorer Foundation (BCEF).
