Yes, as Tanza said, get mentored. The knowledge that can be learned is invaluable, but be careful. You have to come to some agreement how knowledge will be passed on. When I started in 1970's, the mentor I had would answer any question, honestly, and without bias. But I had to ask the question, first.
I have stopped breeding, but I am willing to answer questions - but there is a difference between my environment and yours, so my answers would be different to what you may expect.
You do not have to have one of each, just a bitch, a kennel name, and some money. You will have to take the bitch to shows so that she can be admired/criticisized by all. Winning at shows means that your bitch becomes "desirable" for those with stud dogs. When selecting a mate, make sure he complements your bitch. When it comes time to have a mating, the bitch usually travels. Both the male and female should be in excellent health, and free of most Basenji conditions and be checked by a knowledgeable vet.
As the pups are born in winter, you need a warm place for them to grow the first months of their life. If inside is not an option, there are ways to keep everyone warm - the bitch will be with them. You should not let the pups go before they have had their shots, to introduce them to adult life and what to expect. There are two schools of thought about paying for the service of mating, either pick of the litter; or pay a fee. I prefer the latter, as you might want to keep the pick, or some people will prevaricate over their choice. The fee takes care of single pup litters, and other variations of all boys, or all girls.
There are many variations and questions you should ask, join a breed/group/all breeds club, if possible, and endure the bitchiness that can go on there. Be positive, and others will treat you accordingly. You have two ears, two eyes, and one mouth - use them in that proportion.
