The entire experience was absolutely amazing, from the service to the meals to the location. The service couldn't have been better, my family and I felt safe the whole trip and the experience was unforgettable. Everybody there was incredibly kind and helpful, I hope to go back soon!

We loved our stay at Richards River Camp! It offers an authentic safari experience with very comfortable accommodations, delicious food and wonderful service. Note that Richards Forest Camp is a different lodge and more rustic than it's sister lodge, River Camp. I hands down recommend Richards River Camp. Go - you won't regret it!

It was so lovely to experience an authentic bush camp in the Mara north concession. Great location on the river with a very spacious tent and 'sitting area' that I wanted to spend way more time in reading and enjoying the lovely views. Well decorated with attention to detail. Home cooked meals and relaxed atmosphere. Open vehicle game viewing uninhibited... More

So we were hanging out in Nairobi and knew we wanted a great last second Safari experience. A local friend suggested Richards Camp. She previously was in Safari management and we knew her recommendation would be well informed. After a short bush plane flight from Wilson, we were greeted by Aloise, our new Samburu buddy who would be our guide... More

Dear Blake, Thank you for taking the time to review Richard's River Camp. It sounds like you had a great time here... and saw a great deal of game. We are totally surrounded by wildebeest at the moment and plenty of other game that move with them. I am so glad that Alois, Thor and the rest of the team... More

Richard's camp was full of unexpected surprises. The accommodations were amazing and felt so surreal to be in the middle of rural Africa with all the sights and sounds but still able to enjoy sleeping in a king size bed and having cocktails on a sofa in an open air living room! It felt so luxurious having coffee, chai and... More

Thank you so much for writing a review of Richard's River Camp- Its always so interesting for us to hear what the highlights of our guest's stays were. I know the camp was bustling (to say the least) with all the MEP crew- helicopters, planes and cars all a-go. But as you say- its always great to see conservation in... More

If you want a memorable Mara experience, go to Richard's Camp. Immediately we felt welcomed, like part of the family, and were shown to our outstanding tent accommodations with had outside showers (showering under the stars is awesome!). The dining tent was so comfortable and the meeting tent became a hangout for us, very comfortable seating and a relaxed atmosphere.... More

Richard's Camp provided the picture perfect environment we envisioned when planning a memorable African vacation. The accommodations including the tents and common areas were beautifully decorated and luxurious. The food was fresh from the garden and prepared beautifully. Our hosts, Alissa and Thor, were charming--a pleasure to meet, entertaining, knowledgeable and ensured all of our needs were met. Our walking... More

We spent 3 nights at Richards camp and I have missed it ever since!! The highlight for me was the game drives. Our guide, Lenkume, was amazing. He could spot animals that looked like dots on the horizon to me. I will never forget the day we were zipping along when he stopped, pointed to a far away hill, and... More
