Stayed at mara Bush camp over the Christmas season. Would have written this review earlier if not having computer problems ! Excellent stay. The staff were exceptionally supportive and helpful. Especially Leslie (camp manager ) kept her finger constantly 'on the pulse' and 'oh boy 'did she know how to make people feel welcome ! The food was wonderfully nutritious... More

We stayed early in January and had the place to ourselves. Well appointed rooms, great food, and Leslie the camp manager and her staff are fantastic and very accommodating. We left a Kindle in the camp and is was put on a plane and delivered to us in Nairobi the very next day - excellent service! Note that Google maps... More

Leslie, the Camp Manager, is fabulous, and her team works hard to see that everything is done to make your stay very comfortable. The food was very good, and the chef was very accommodating to special needs. Leslie even provided shukas (the Maasai blankets) for us to sleep under because we found the duvets too heavy and warm. The bush... More

Overall, the Mara Bush Camp is a very good place to stay if you are in the Mara. Close to an airstrip and well situated for good game drives. Staff are friendly, and food is good. The camp manager is very accomodating and attends to any requests you may have. The camp is not fenced at all, but, it is... More

A beautiful and intimate camp for a magical safari experience. Wonderful and hospitable staff, great food, and charming tents and dining and lounging areas. This is also a great value for a spectacular part of Maasai Mara. I would definitely stay here again - it's the kind of place you really want to come back to. Our safari guide from... More

I have stayed at Mara Bush Camp many times and bring clients there every year. I run photo safaris and for photography it is an excellent camp. It is in a great location. The special photo tent with lots of space and plenty of plugs is ideal to recharge batteries, download and work on photos. The food is excellent and... More

The moment we arrived at Mara Bush Camp I knew we'd found somewhere special. And I have never felt more at home staying anywhere. The camp is beautiful; created and run with passion and love. The service couldn't be faulted... personal, professional and with an unfailing eye for detail. These people care about the Mara, about its people, about its... More

This was our favorite Camp of our Safari in Kenya. Although the camp itself is very small, it is done amazingly. Everything is mobile, so even the "lounge" and "dining room" are mobile tents, but you did not even have to use them as all the tables are set up under the sky right next to the river. You have...
