We are a family of discerning travelers (kids are 10 and 13) who place a premium on unique and authentic experiences delivered by outstanding people. Richard's Camp delivered in spades. In fact, we loved it so much that we changed our entire itinerary to get back for a second time before our trip ended. Richard is the ultimate host and... More

Richards Camp is a little slice of heaven! We had a party of 16 (friends & family) and they surpassed our dreams in every way. The food was fabulous, the staff was amazing, the camps are outstanding and the game viewing is beyond belief. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are heavenly! This was my 11th visit and I... More

First time at a safari camp, but I can't imagine ever being better looked after. The hosts, the guides, the tents, the food, the setting (of both camps!), and the overall experience was first rate. From being greeted by Richard upon arrival, to the hot coals under our chairs at a bush dinner, to William, our amazing guide, to Elsa,... More

Our family had a wonderful experience at Richard's River Camp. We were booked for 3 nights, but extended our stay because the visit was so positive. The hosts were extremely gracious, well-versed and genuinely interested in providing the best experience possible. The setting is idyllic, nestled along a small river with views into the surrounding Mara and all the amazing... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Forest Camp, and 3 nights at the River Camp. Although the Forest camp is slightly more "rustic," both camps are top-notch, incredibly well managed, have outstanding staff, and you will want for nothing! We enjoyed experiencing both and didn't really have a favorite. In the Forest Camp, our two teenage daughters stayed in... More

Dear Denise, Thank you, what a wonderful review, and so useful for other readers to know that you spent an equal amount of time at both of our camps and didn't have a favourite. Did any of you try our ''forest bath'' at forest camp? definitely a high-light for many guests who stay there. Thank you for being very complimentary... More
