The Basecamp Tree plantation was established over 15 years ago to revive the Talek river ecosystem by addressing the pressing issue of deforestation and ground erosion.
Since it’s inception in 1998, Basecamp has been involved in environmental transformation practices. Basecamp’s current location has been transformed into a micro-climate covering approximately 10 acres with more than 80,000 trees planted. To date the benefits of this initiative are visible and include the increase of more than 200 bird species within this area with unlimited availability of other animal species especially the small wildlife.
Basecamp endeavors to restore the forest area in the Talek region in Masai Mara and also create a bird centre. Basecamp will also be creating a study centre for both bird watchers and people wanting to study the micro-climate, tree species and re-forestation project
Basecamp aim’s to plant 200 indigenous trees within 5 years whilst building a strong and competent seedling production, a future “Mara tree species bank” to preserve the rare species endemic to the Masai Mara region and local medicinal tree species. They will develop an awareness program for the community and guests to educate them on the importance of re-forestation and climate change.
Their overall aim is to create a world-class carbon offset tree planting program that can be replicated in other parts of the Masai Mara.
