We were upgraded to Bushtops from Olarro due to unforeseen circumstances and although this made us initially quite grumpy, however all this was alleviated in the first 5 seconds of arriving. We arrived quite late however the manager and staff greeted us at the door, they took us to our beautiful tent with its fantastic view and then asked us... More

We were transported to a wild wonderland at bushtops. From the second we stepped out of our vehicles we were treated like royalty. The staff are impeccably trained and at the lodge itself everything was simply perfect. Everything has been thought of from the steaming hot tubs on bedroom balconies to the one of a kind starlit pool and hot... More

I had always dreamt about waking up to a beautiful sighting and this place really does hit the spot. From the moment we landed at the air strip, we were treated like royalty. The location of the hotel was a 30 minute drive from the strip but we enjoyed it because we got a little taste of the game drive.... More

This place has high ratings for good reason! My husband I stayed 3 nights at the Bushtops during our honeymoon last November and words cannot describe the wonder of this place nor the quality of service we received. We had the entire camp to ourselves while we visited, and even though we were merely 2 lonely individuals, that did not... More

Can not understate our satisfaction w Bushtops. Booked family tent for four nights. Japhet was our guide, Joseph our spotter (im convinced he could spot a glass of milk on the moon), and Frederick our butler were all top of the tops. Every aspect of our Bushtops experience exceeded expectations.

MARA My husband and I have a habit we cannot seem to kick: returning to Mara Bushtops to be treated like royalty. This was our third visit and our best yet: the addition of the Amani Spa has made this a true slice of heaven on earth. Being massaged whilst looking out over the private conservancy salt lick was one... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights during our East African safari in October 2014. The staff was so hospitable, nothing was too much to ask for. Lawrence the manager seems to care about every single guest that arrives. Our driver was Charles and Masai spotter was Stanley. They were both excellent at finding animals for us and... More
