You will forever be able to one-up anyone else's vacation. Joking aside, it was an amazing place to stay. We recommend it, as all our expectations were exceeded. You experience being in the midst of the wildlife and their habitat from the safety of your 5-star tent. Accommodations were comfortable, clean, and luxurious.

Very nice camp, located on a river bank, full of hippos. Location of the camp is perfect for people willing to visit the northern-east part of Masai Mara, however it is possible to get access to the central part of the park via Talek gate or crossing Talek river (depending on the water level). Every tent is located among the... More

After a 1 hour flight from Amboseli, we arrived at the camp. The camp was lovely. The staff showed us everything where it is. We went to our tents and the hippo pool. Then we had the lunch, the lunch and dinner were all really healthy. the deer would come to the camp when you sleep and you can also... More

After a long and exhausting drive from Lake Nakuru,Michela and her staff welcomed us with cool juice and cool towels. Then,after a short briefing,we went to our tents and were pleasantly surprised to see how spacious and clean it was. Our ten was facing the river and we enjoyed watching the hippos and hearing them at night frolicking in the... More

Thank you very much for your fantastic review and your positive comments! We have recently introduced reading lamps into our newly furnished forest tents. We are considering to do the same for the river tents after this season. More than anything though we look forward to welcoming you back to Little Mara Bush Camp soon! More

This is a lovely Camp in the middle of a bush, surrounded by wildlife! There is a hippo pool next to the camp so you could see and hear them throughout the day (and sometimes night). A family of elephants visited the camp during my 5-days stay at the camp, which was really exciting (but we should hide from them).... More

We stayed at Little Mara Bush Camp for the last four 4 nights from Aug 11 to Aug15 2014. I would say that we really enjoyed our trip &... More

We had three really great days in the "Little Mara Bush Camp". The camp is perhaps the best one in the Masai Mara. The personal was so great and all our wishes become immediately true. Our tend the "Hyena" was perhaps the best of the camp. We had the wildlife of Africa near the tend. One afternoon we will be... More

We stayed in six camps during our three week safari and this was one of the best. The tents were very spacious, great bathrooms with running water showers (available in the late afternoon after game drives), and nice decks with comfortable furniture. Beds are fully tented so in the event bugs get into the tent you are covered. Unexpected surprise... More

I'm so glad Sunworld suggested we stay here rather than Mara Bush Camp which is owned by them also. For those that want to have tents that are more glamping than roughing it out, this is the place. Each tent is named after an animal and you are escorted from the tents by one of the staff members or a... More
