Its difficult to know where to start when describing Bush Camp and the local conservancy. I booked a weeks trip there after speaking to a work colleague who has been to Bush Camp 9 times before. Her feedback was fantastic on the camp, the wildlife and the camp managers Darren and Emma so I was already going with high expectations. It was a pleasure to finally meet them both and it is safe to say that words fail to describe just what you experience when you get there.
I have previously travelled to Kenya on safari but the game viewing was a totally different class. There are lots of cats and I was lucky enough to see lions and leopards with kills and on one day witnessed two cheetah hunts including a successful chase and kill. Every time I thought there couldnt be anything more to see, the guides found something else incredible. However, what really seperates this experience from others is the amount of time you get to spend on your own with the wildlife. It is impossible to describe just how magical it is to sit there with your guide and a leopard or pride of lions, without any other jeeps around.
The camp is wonderful, only 6 tents and run in a really sustainable way. Emma and Darren are so welcoming and do everything they can to ensure that your stay is wonderful. I have a wheat and dairy allergy and the kitchen staff always produced something delicious to eat and made an effort to come up with a range of desserts at dinner time. The tents are very well set up and the entire team are so friendly and helpful.
I cant recommend Bush Camp highly enough and if you only ever go on one safari, this should be it! Thank you Emma and Darren for a truely wonderful week and I hope I can make it back there soon.
