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

Thank you so much for your review of River camp! most appreciated. We enjoyed having you and the family to stay with us. I hope you liked tents one and two... lots of sounds around those tents most nights between the hippo, lion and hyena! We hope to be able to host you again. Alisa 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

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

Nice to hear that you took some time and relax with a book, as it is really is very peaceful at camp, so that's a nice thing to do after an early start for game drives.

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

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.
