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 of 4 stayed at Richard's River camp for 3 nights. It was an amazing experience. Alisa and Elsa did everything they could to make our experience special. Sundowners in the bush, lunch and breakfast by the river (the food is sooo good) and anything you would like to do to make this special place a memorable experience. The... 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

Our family spent 3 wonderful days at Richard's Camp. We were impressed with the staff who were always available to help plan our days. Thank you to Alisa, Thor, Elsa, Daniel and everyone else at the camp for working so hard to ensure we were comfortable and safe. Aloyce was our dedicated driver and guide, he ensured we saw a...

My trip stay at Richard's Camp, Maasai Mara was the best and most wonderful experience ever! A combination of an absolutely beautiful Camp, the warm and great hospitality by Alisa and Thor (and when we were there also Elsa), the surroundings, our game drive late afternoon with the wonderful experience of seeing a leopard so close by -just posing for...

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!
