Bushtops was the first stop on our safari, and what a way to start! Everything was done perfectly. The accommodation was superb, with a shower overlooking the bush and a beautiful sunken lounge area in which to enjoy our afternoon naps. Our tent (which was huge!) was at the far end of the camp, which at first worried me, but... More

From the moment we landed at the Kogatende airstrip, to the moment we sadly waved goodbye from the plane at our departure 4 days later, we were treated royally, being spoiled in so many wonderful and surprising ways. We were greeted by Deus, our very knowledgeable ranger-driver-guide, and Amus, our spotter. They surprised us with a spread of drinks, treats,... More

Our guide Simon and all of the staff were amazing hosts. Got to see so many wonderful animals and the fantastic wildebeest migration. Tent was beautiful and bathtub with Serengeti view, snacks and champagne was a treat. The food was very good and the chef was adorable. The bush lunch and breakfast were great fun.

The tented accommodation at Bushtops is really quite lovely, and the set-out of each tent is very private, comfortable, and luxurious. The only (minor) problems would be the dimness of light at night especially in the wardrobe area and the lack of mirrors. Both issues are likely to be addressed in the future. The staff are all very friendly, obliging... More

The rooms are a good size, food is generally good and there are the nice touches like hot water bottles in the evening and the hot tub (although with the number of flies thrashing about it and the fact you couldn't take a shower for 3 hours afterwards because all the hot water gets used up in the hot tub...

This is a outstanding property in the middle of the bush of the Serengeti . Meals and services were over the top. The tents were gorgeous and really felt like you had your own private home. This was by far the best camp we stayed in Tanzania!

Rooms: The family tent, where we stayed, had a bridge to combine two equal tents. The location is near the restaurant tent and very convenient. Service: Before we stayed in Mara bushtops, where the service was absolutely perfect. The first dinner we were a little disappointed, as the waiters were in such a rush - efficient, but almost too efficient,... More

This is the Four Seasons, if you will, of all Safari Camps. Everything was outstanding and the service, lodging, amenities and meals were over the top. You will not be disappointed. Although Called a Camp, it's really "glamping" with amenities that surpass any resort. There's even a zero edge pool. Simply the best. Period.

We have travelled extensively and stayed and many luxury hotels and hotel chains and we have never had luxury like at Bush Tops. The level of service and attention to detail is higher than anything we have experienced before. The “tent” is essentially a luxurious hotel suite, but more beautiful, with its own deck looking out onto the Serengeti plain... More
