This was the first camp of 4 on a recent safari and what a great location. We were greeted by Leslie who makes sure everything is perfect. Pizza made in an outdoor wood oven was our first lunch! Anthony took great care of us at the bar, coming up with some fun concoctions of juice drinks! The chef and room... More

We spent 4 nights at the Mara Bush camp and it was our favorite place out of accommodations in 5 reserve parks. There are about 12 tented "houses" each with a porch, comfortable beds, and bathroom. Leslie, the manager, made us feel welcome and at home during our stay. It is solar-powered and very quiet in the camp which made... More

Perfect choice! We stayed there for 3 nites and from the beginning to the end everything was absolutely flawless. Masai Mara is an impressive National Park and you can see tons of animals including the most elusive. The camp is very well located, perfectly run by Leslie who's very nice and easy-going; the tents are functioning and immaculate, the staff... More

Located in the heart of Mara National Park, means seeing the cats right at your doorstep and what more could you ask for. The place is not fenced hence all the Masaai security detail that looks after you and your family through out, fortunately there is a river going all around the place, hence one has to be careful of...

We had a memorable experience during our four night stay as a family party in the eco-friendly Mara Bush Camp. Its location is excellent, in one of the less congested areas of the Masai Mara, overlooking the Olare Orok river and just a few minutes from the Ol Kiombo airstrip. Relaxing with a glass of wine while watching the local... More

Mara Bush Camp is very well located essentially in the heart of Masai Mara Reserve between the Olare Orok River and Ol Kiombo Airstrip. Although you are surrounded by the reserve's wildlife I recommend a Land Cruiser rather than a minibus if traveling overland on safari. The area's rugged terrain demands taking a circuitous route by minibus to reach highlights... More

I stayed in this beautiful tented camp for 3 nights with my other fellow photographer friends. The service and hospitality we received was second to none. Leslie and her team looked after each and every need of ours. The tent is spacious and neat. Since its totally in the bush,there are masai warriors who safeguard in the night. Once inside... More

I have stayed in Mara Bush Camp several times, the first time back in 2007. This summer I brought a small group of safari tourists from Norway and USA for a photo safari to Maasai Mara. Our base was Mara Bush Camp and just like before we were thrilled by the service, quietness and beauty of this place! Located on... More
