Wow wow wow. If your thinking of booking, stop thinking and just book it. The Masai Mara is an amazing place made even more fantastic by Bush Camp. It is exactly what it says, a camp right in the middle of the bush with animals wandering around day and night - but you get escorted during night hours so nothing to worry about. All aspects of safety, comfort and welfare have been thought of.
Darren and Emma work exceptionally hard to give you that little bit extra - they went out of their way to assist me when poorly and with dietary needs, even out on bush meals. But, they are part of an excellent team - every staff member was polite, helpful and exceedingly knowledgeable. Our main guide Livingstone spotted a lion whilst driving in the other direction - amazing.
Everything we wanted was available even though we were staying in a tent. We didn't want for anything - even a water bottle in our bed at night. The food is better than you get in some posh restaurants - nothing like we had expected and so much more, especially the 'picnics'. They are full meals taken in the Mara with crockery and china - how do they do it!
Our poor room attendants were up at any hour we wanted to make sure we were awake and about for our next exciting day - always with a cheery good morning, hot drink and biscuits - nothing was too much and they couldn't do enough. The dining room staff were always aware what people wanted and how they liked things - every detail was covered. The whole team and organisation make an excellent package.
The setting is idyllic - I am desperate to go back one day. Thank you to everyone at Kicheche Bush Camp including the wildlife - FANTASTIC
