I stayed at Richard's River Camp for 4 nights in October to do a photograhic safari of the Maasai Mara. The tents at the camp are very nice...not over the top and not two rustic. The outdoor showers were quite magical. The managers and the guides were great and we saw many lions, leopards, elephants, giraffe's and a huge number... More

We stayed at Richard's River Camp for 4 nights in September. It was not our first safari (South Africa and Namibia in the past), but certainly the most amazing one. Masai Mara during the annual migration is a unique experience. We were two couples together. During our stay, we had a guide assigned to us (Eloise). Looking for interesting animals... More

We stayed 2 nights in Richards camp and loved it! We arrived in Mara North airfield and were taken to the camp in a specialised safari jeep. On the way we drove around and saw loads of animals. Arriving into the camp was like an oasis. The tents are so tastefully furnished, and so cosy. Hot water bottles are put... More

If you want to see African animals. This is the place! You feel in contact with the thousands of wild animals both migrating in August-October and the local fauna. Richard his staff and the Land Rover Maasai driver-guides make you feel at home in the middle of a great outdoor contact with wild nature. Wonderful people who share their knowledge... More

Richard's River Camp was our first stop after spending 1 week with Free the Children on an incredibly emotional and fulfilling journey. After saying our goodbyes to family and friends alike, we were greeted by Antony from Richard's at Mara North Airstrip. Once at the camp, we were warmly welcomed by Alisa, Elsa, and Tor - little did I know... 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.
