We were unbelievably impressed with everything about Mara Bushtops! The incredible tents with what seemed like unlimited hot water and electricity were awesome! The views from our tent were incredible! We sat one morning and watched seven giraffe graze right in front of us! Our personal valet, Joyce was excellent! She made sure our every request was perfect. She even drew a hot bath for us on our veranda for when we returned from a day in the bush!
Our safari guide, Peter and spotter, Jacob were fantastic! One day they showed us the "big five" up close and personal in less than two hours. Our bush lunch was great! It was in a special spot that Jacob took us to. Great lunch and we had fun with a baboon who came in and was very curious about us and our food.
The manager, Lawrence did an excellent job. He greeted us every day at some point to ensure we were happy with everything and to enquire if there was anything he could to make our stay more enjoyable. All of the staff were excellent, very friendly and truly focused on customer service!
The wine cellar in the bush was excellent as well. We selected two bottles of fabulous South African wine to enjoy on our veranda while we laid in the hot bath enjoying the animals and the sounds. Simply perfection!
The restaurant setting and food was outstanding! The restaurant looks over a natural salt lick and water hole. As we were having lunch, we watched giraffe, impala, baboons, wart hogs, elephants, etc. come over right in front of us for a drink!
