The Hainsworth family - 4 children and parents, had an amazing time staying at Richard's Camp. Kaila and Shawn, the hosts are amazing, so helpful and the perfect hosts.

We stayed at Richard's Camp in September and were treated like family and royalty at the same time. Nothing was too much for our hosts Alysha and Tor, assisted by Kayla and Sean from the other camp. The facilities were outstanding - we have never seen tents this luxurious! And Wi-Fi in the middle of the Masai Mara! Who knew?... More

Our family of 5 stayed at Richard's Camp for 5 days and absolutely loved it!! Our hosts Kaila and Shawn were extremely accommodating and encouraged us to experience all they had to offer. From action packed half to full day safaris, great hikes, beautiful sunsets, drinks around the fire, bush breakfasts and/or lunch if needed, we were not disappointed. Our... More

Richard's Camp was an unbelievable spot to set up a 'home base' for our Safari's on the Mara. As a family of 5 we were very comfortable in our 2 tents and were treated like family by our hosts Kaila and Shawn who went above and beyond to make our experience incredible. Our guide - Joseph - was extremely knowledgable... More

My family of four stayed here last summer and we LOVED it. The teenagers were duely impressed with their tent, bucket showers and food. Our hosts were beyond excellent and our guide through the Mara was absolutely wonderful. We cannot wait to go back.

From the moment we landed at the Masai Mara "airport" and were picked up by Thor, we felt instantly a part of the family! The quality of the accommodations, food, and game drives were only surpassed by the genuine hospitality and warmth of the managers, Thor and Alisa, and their team of exceptional staff. We couldn't have asked for a... More

I hardly know where to begin my positive ravings about this camp. For our party of 5, it represented the ultimate safari experience, a luxurious oasis in the Masai Mara. Upon arrival at the airstrip we were met by our guide, who transported us to the camp, which I understand is the newer "settlement" of Richard's Camp, originally designed as... More

My husband and I visited in April. We saw an amazing array of animals, and I can't say enough about the hospitality. Tor and Elisa (the camp managers) were very gracious, and our guides were both amusing and interesting. All the camp staff put out effort to make certain that we had a fabulous time. In addition to the game... More

Our trip began with our skilled driver Joseph picking us up and navigating through the fresh mud created by heavy rains. We saw zebras, giraffes, gazelles, wildebeast, and baboons even before we got to camp. In the two days following we were up close to lions and cubs, cheetah, leopard, elephants, hippos, rhinos, buffallo, all kinds of birds, storks, vultures,... More
