The wedding of our son and his beautiful bride took place on 1st August 2014 It was an amazing experience. It was intimate and exclusive. Everything about Mara Bushtops is luxurious. For the 14 of us nothing was too much trouble from special dietary needs to early morning trays for wake up calls. Hot tubs were run ready for our... More

This was my top safari camp of the 4 we went to in different countries. As someone else said, there is too much to rave about. From Lawrence, the excellent manager, to our housekeeper Lucy, to Chef Mark and his world class meals (dining al fresco by the salt lick with zebra, impala,and other animals just feet away from you...

There is too much to write and rave about, from the gracious and friendly staff, the extremely comfortable and beautiful tents and views to the feeling of being home even for those who are just passing through Kenya. I would recommend a stay here to anyone for any occasion and I hope to return soon myself.

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
