The camp is owned by Sun World Safaris in Kenya, a good safari company. Great food at the camp. Individual tents with privacy, except for the Maasai warriors who stand guard during the night. 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 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. The camp manager Leslie is interested in her guests and makes sure to be approachable any time. All staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. Food is excellent and... More

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
