... have no idea where to start ...
I found my Basenji by going to the local dog show. The county I live in has a "Kennel Club" that organizes an annual dog show. I was trying to decide on the right breed for my personality and lifestyle, I really liked the Basenji breed except for size (I couldn't visualize how big/small the dogs were)... I went to the local dog show just to see one in person and was lucky enough to meet and chat with the breeder at the dog show. I got her information and (fast forward 5 years) brought home an amazing dog! Absolutely perfect (in my eyes and heart).
So... where to start? Look local.
Where is your closest Kennel Club located? email and ask if they have any members with Basenjis.
Call, email nearby Veteranarians: do they know anybody that breeds Basenjis?
Yes, you can look online on sites like Petfinder, PetHarbor, etc. but that's a lot of time hunting for a needle in a haystack. I'm not saying you won't be lucky and find that needle... just that it can take a long time.
There are a few rescues that specialize in Basenji's. You are most likely going to get an adult Basenji (which isn't a bad thing) and they typically help with transportion if the distance is an issue.
Bear in mind, @eeeefarm is right. Bringing home a puppy may mean waiting until next "season" which will be near the new year. Don't fret though, you can use the time in between to find the right breeder and develop a relationship with them. Meanwhile, learn everything you can!
