Sometimes, they surprised me by stepping out from behind trees, unexpectedly. They really keep a eye on the guests for safety. Lots of hippos out at... More

We visited at the end of March 2015. Within five minutes of landing and in our safari vehicle we saw hippo, giraffe, and pride of lion with a fresh kill. We then made our way to the camp which was only five minutes away. We had a warm welcome from manager Leslie and her team. This camp is raw luxury.... More

We had stayed in Mara Bush Camp in 2011 and we are very happy that it got even better within the last 4 years.
