Basecamp’s Eagle View, Mara Naboisho Conservancy, Kenya
Eagle View’s nine tented suites opened a year ago on a ridge that overlooks a broad swath of savannah in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy.
The camp pays a guaranteed income to each of the approximately 500 families who own the conservancy.
Masai guides lead guests on night drives or walks and use animal-friendly spotlights
to illuminate nocturnal creatures.
Suites overlook a salt lick that attracts one of the highest densities of lions in Africa. On occasion, guests may find a lion’s kill in the morning.
