Complete perfection - a truly exceptional experience and probably the best place we have ever stayed. Manages to be incredibly comfortable while unmistakably a true safari experience, with wild animals never far away and great views of the landscape and it's inhabitants. The service, from reception to the restaurant to the in-room butler was just outstanding - great touches such... More

The beginning of our honeymoon and could well have been the highlight. We were the only people in the camp for various reasons, which only added to the feeling of exclusivity. The tents are beautifully presented, clean, well maintained and a mix of modern and intrepid explorer. The views are unbelievable and straight into the sunrise, which are a great... More

Incredible family holiday in the Mara at Bushtops ! Alex & his magical team are super efficient . Peter & Senna provided us with unbelievable opportunities to view the animals at almost touching distance. The magic of Africa ensconed in the luxury of Bushtops ..... Beyond Awesome.

We spent four amazing days and nights at Mara Bushtops. It is called Wild Luxury for good reason. The service was exceptional and the facilities from the tent with jacuzzi to the restaurant overlooking the wildlife watering hole could not be faulted. The food was exceptional. The safari vehicle provided every comfort and the romantic private lunches for two in... More

Amazing holiday! I spent time at both the Mara Bushtops and Serengeti Bushtops and both were equally spectacular. What made the stay a Mara so special was the staff. I travelled alone and not once did I feel alone. Everyone made me feel like a special guest or friend. The food was amazing, I could not believe that this quality... More

My husband, son and I have just returned from spending three nights at Mara Bushtops. There are not enough superlatives to describe this amazing place with its amazingly friendly and attentive staff. We arrived to an incredibly warm and friendly welcome and even though we were later than expected, Alex and his team immediately made us feel like the most... More

We stayed in March 2014 whilst on our honeymoon. We have never experienced such exquisite customer service. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. The rooms are beautiful and the food was great. We were lucky enough to see the big five during our short stay plus so much more. We loved all the small thoughtful touches such as the... More

Myself, my husband and my 12 year old daughter spent two nights at Mara Bushtops last week and an absolute ball! Apart from the fact that we were the only ones there and felt like movie stars. We were amazed with the hospitality of the staff and especially the Manager, Alex. He joined us for lunch and dinner and had... More

Although a long time has passed since our stay in the Mara Bushtops, October 2013, not a day goes by without thinking of the fantastic experience my husband and i had. The biggest regret was that we could not stay longer than the 4 wonderful nights that we were there. The level of camp luxury and attention given by the... More
