Mara Bushtops was our second out of 4 stops in Africa. We flew in from Roving Bushtops in the Serengeti. We had both bush planes to ourselves and Liz even invited one person from our group to co-pilot with her. The trip included a flight stop at the border to clear customs which was an interesting, easy local experience as... More

Don't know where to start......staff - most efficient and most polite, location - breath taking, food - to die for, tent - been to many in the Mara but none compare to this 5+*. Will definitely be back.

The staffs attention to detail, the land rover/game drives, the food, the luxury rooms and the spa - all 5* Expect nothing but the very best. Be prepared to be spoiled. Loved this beautiful place, my favourite so far!

We have been around the world but not so found of animals, we never thought of visiting Africa. But this year our young newly married couple friend, having roots in Kenya convinced us to do Masai Mara. As we did not have much time we spent 2 nights at Borana and 4 nights at Mara Bush Tops. To start with,... More

Flawless. Out of a dozen safaris: Best tent, best safari vehicle, best food, fantastic staff in the hotel and on safari. Big five spotted in one day with no rushing. A thorough VIP experience with the utmost respect for nature. Stayed 2 nights/3 days, not enough!

I was at least One-Nil down the day I suggested this holiday. I had only wanted to do it for 57 years but my wife was very reluctant to go on holiday in a "TENT". So I sold a kidney and all the family silver and booked a holiday described as "wild luxury", and so it is. Many have commented... More

I was thoroughly depressed to leave, what has been my home for 2 weeks. I have seen many different camps in Africa but this has been the best experience and most memorable of all. Mara Bushtops is the ultimate luxury with so many little details and touches that make it very special. The setting is unique the service exceptional and... More

I always find "great service" a little uncomfortable - too often it feels like they're just pestering you for no great reason. But the staff here really gave the feeling that they were genuinely happy to help - it was all very nice and relaxed. Our guide (Kiarie) gave the impression that if we hadn't dragged him back to camp... More

Bushtops was our final and most luxurious camp of our stay in Kenya. We were thoroughly spoilt by all the staff who couldn't do enough for you. Our driver Nicholas and tracker Stanley were very good and we managed to take hundreds of photos of the wildlife! The tents were real high end luxury including a hot tub which was... More

We stayed at Mara Busytops for our anniversary. The views from our tent were vast and wildlife could be seen all around. We dined on our tent deck for lunch and snacks, after coming back from safari drives; to enjoy the privacy and take in how special you feel having this as your window. We also enjoyed our assigned butler... More
