Coming Together: More than a coffee table book

The idea behind Basecamp Explorer was born in a meeting between our founder Svein Wilhelmsen and Maasai chief Ole Taek by a fireplace in Kenya in 1998.

The sustainable model of responsible tourism soon included our presence in Svalbard as well as Masai Mara, where we offer a range of adventures and characteristic places to stay.

This book is a rich presentation of Basecamp Explorer´s 20-year journey from the equator to the high Arctic. Sit back and enjoy a large number of high-quality images and a selection of our stories.
