I stayed five days at Bush Camp, my first time both in the Mara and also on a safari. I was impressed with the accommodation, the setting, the food, the slick organisation but most of all with the pains taken by the guides to find the photo opportunities that we wanted. Encyclopaedic knowledge of the Mara by the highly trained guides was a given (I was told they generally attend tracking school for a year unlike some other places), but also their intelligence network e.g. guides not with guests scouring the area and reporting in. Very effective and a real capacity for taking pains. The managers Darren and Emma were great - approachable, excellent company and nothing was too much trouble. The other guests (nearly all repeats and some with over 10 previous trips with Kicheche) were great fun and there was a real sense of anticipation of what the next day would bring. A winner!
