I stayed at the Mara Bush Camp in the year 2012. It was an amazing stay. The place is set up in the middle of the bush. It is very nice and I felt was luxurious. The tents were very spacious and comfortable. The food was basic but very good. A Masai guarding each tent was a novel idea. However,... More

Mara bush camp is magic, especially we really appreciated Leslie's welcome, (camp manager) she is very nice. The Chef is wonderful, every evening a delightful dinner was waiting for us! The barman is always watching out for your favourite drink, he is very kind and polite as much as Mike, during the nighttime he was always ready for the bodyguard... More

Our driver Samy Lekinshon knew everything about every animal, found all animals we wanted to see and we just had a great time together. Everything was organized so well and we... More

Got to stay at this comfortable camp for 4 nights this past October. The tents are spacious and have everything you need. I loved the thoughtful touch of the waterbottle in the bed after we came back from dinner. The food was excellent...like a fine restaurant. Beautiful to sit under the trees and listen to the sounds of the Mara.... More

I also give two thumbs up to Leslie and her staff. We stayed in several camps during our recent safari and this was by far my favorite. At some of the others I felt like I was constantly tipping. I like the fact that this camp had a jar where you could deposit your tip at the end of your... More

This is a wonderful tent camp along a small river. The tents are large, spotlessly clean, and the service attentive. The atmosphere is one of being a member of the family, with the staff always looking out for your well-being. We ate all our meals outside, enjoyed watching the hippos in the river, and the marvelous wildlife in this area.... More

My husband and I booked a four day safari at Mara Bush Camp. We were the only guests in the camp. From start to finish the staff couldn't have been more helpful, including pre-booking enquiries. Everything was just right. The tents were very comfortable and we had everything that we required. The staff at the camp were very friendly and... More

We had the pleasure of spending 6 nights here in Sept. 2014. Loved, loved, loved it! It´s perfectly located at the Olare Orok river which is doing a U-turn here. The camp is right in the middle of that so every tent faces the river. The tents are spacious and well-kept, beds are perfectly comfy and the bucket showers are... More
