We recently spent a total of twelve nights in four different tented camps in the Okavango Delta, Masai Mara and Serengeti. All have been wonderful experiences. However no other quite met the level of easy-going comfort and attention we enjoyed during our four nights in Richards Camp. Sean and Kayla and our guide Boston just went that little bit further...

We recently stayed at Richard's Camp and honestly say this was the best safari camp experience. The wildlife sightings and adventures were non stop and we saw everything and more on our wish list from a migration from both sides of the river, a few leopard and cheetah kills, feasting hyenas and vultures, mating giraffes and hyenas, hundreds of wildebeests...

My wife, 15 year old son and I recently spent 4 nights at this wonderful secluded small camp (8 tents). I can honestly say this was the best safari experience we have ever had. If you want to see the Masai Mara away from the truck convoy crowds of other Safari camps this is the camp for you. Secluded in... More

My wife and I recently spent several nights at Richard's Camp, a beautiful permanent tented camp in a private conservancy adjacent to the Masai Mara National Park. Richard's is set in a lovely forest area with the wildlife of the bush all around. Unlike many of the larger camps in the Mara, Richard's offers highly personalized service. Very importantly, Richard's... More

I have stayed at Richard's Camp numerous times and it never disappoints. While not inside the reserve there is still exceptional animal viewing and it has never ceased to amaze me. The guides are some of the best in Kenya and so welcoming and accommodating. I look forward to seeing them yearly when I travel here. The camp is beautiful... More

The way to experience Masai Mara. Who would believe you can live like this in a "tent". Attention to all details, excellent food and most concerning staff. Richard really has a great team and done a fabulous job in creating a great atmosphere. They also really make sure you see all the wildlife that fortunately still is around. Saweverything except...

Richard's Camp was absolutely the perfect way to kick off our African experience. Kyla and Sean were amazing hosts, making us feel at home right away. Our every need was catered to without losing our sense of wilderness and adventure. We were simply blown away by the attention to detail and extra effort that Richard's put in to make sure... More

Richard's Camp was the "unknown" camp heading into the trip with my family and I. After stops in Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Zanzibar, I can say that Richard's has the best people, guides, and wildlife out of any of the stops. The staff created a laid-back atmosphere, allowing us to create our own schedule. Richard's also had many surprises that I... More
