My mother and I visited the Masai Mara on September. We were looking forward to this experience and staying at the Mara Bush Camp made it a very special and unforgettable one. Leslie, the manager, and her staff gave us a warm welcome and made our stay very pleasant. The camp has a beautiful site and it's located next to... 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

We spend 3 wonderfull days at Mara Bush Camp in October. The Mara was still full of Gnues and Zebras so that we came to see a crossing over the river close to the camp. The Camp has an optimal central position from where you started to the best places. Our Guide Sammy was perfect. He knows all good spots... More

The Mara Bush Camp exceeded all of our expectations! From the moment that we were graciously greeted upon arrival until our departure 4 days later, everyone worked to make our adventure the experience of a lifetime. We arranged for an afternoon tea party for our 7 and 9 year old grand daughters. A Masai warrior taught them crafts. The surprise... More

The tented-camp “Mara Bush Camp” is an amazing place for tourists and especially photographers who love to be in the nature and enjoy an eco-friendly camp. The tents are much smaller than the tents in the Little Mara Bush Camp, but you still have enough space. The bathroom is basic, but clean and the shower is great. The manager, Lesley,... More

Four of us (two couples) stayed three nights in Matira Bush Camp early this month. Location of the camp is excellent for watching birds and listening to animal sounds in the night. It is also Central and access to almost any part of the Park is very easy from the Camp. The camp environment, set up, food and restaurant are... More

I spent 4 fabulous days at the Mara Bush Camp in early August 2014. The camp is located in a secluded area on a hippo-filled river. It is a true bush camp, with only a dozen tents - all of which are located on the bank of the river. The tents are very spacious, with two queen-size beds in each,... More

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
