There isn't a lot to say that hasn't already been said in the previous reviews. Kenya was my 44th country I have visited and I can honestly say we have not experienced better service anywhere else than we did at Mara Bushtops. Charles and James were awesome as our driver and spotter, Pascal did a fantastic job with our room... More

To put this review in context, this was our 6th Safari and our 4th in East Africa. The staff at Mara Bushtops are fantastic, incredibly friendly, and nothing is too much trouble. Lawrence, Nicholas and Pauline deserve special mention. Nicholas was our guide/driver and we cant recommend him highly enough, not just for his knowledge but also his great personality.... More

I've been meaning to write this review for 2 months. It's the first time I have ever written a hotel review. I don't know where to begin. Let me start by saying that Mara Bushtops is heaven on earth. I've traveled throughout 50+ countries across every continent. As for my taste, I tend to like luxurious boutique/unique hotels when I... More

We had not been to the Mara for over 10years and this undoubtedly was our best experience ever. The camp is beautifully built blending luxury in a natural setting. Rooms always had power and hot water and also a hot tub built into the patio. The newly built spa(with gym, steam & sauna) was amazing as we have never seen... More

Mara Bushtops was the most favorite of the campos we stayed at in Kenya and Tanzania. The tents were outfitted beautifully and were so comfortable. We had amazing views from tent Impala, with Zebras visiting us every day. The staff was amazing. Lawrence was extremely helpful and we really appreciated him making sure that we received our wonderful Maasai spear... More

This was one of our first stops on our October wedding anniversary safari extravaganza. It set the bar quite high.... We were picked up at the airfield by our driver Charles who was a great combination of friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. The drive to Mara Bushtops through their conservancy was teeming with wildlife. We received a gracious welcome from their... More

The staff at Bushtops camps are amazing, they offer excellent service, the tents are very high end, the guides and drivers extremely knowledgable and the food is gourmet. We loved the Bushtops experience and recommend it to anyone seeking "wild luxury". We saw all of the animals 0, the big 5 plus plus and a Mara River crossing! Fabulous :)

Fantastic and excellent from start to finish! We stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights at the start of our trip to Kenya and Tanzania. We had looked at a number of other luxury safari camps in Masai Mara and decided that we really liked the look of Mara Bushtops after looking at their website. This was not a... More
