This was my second trip to Africa. I found the Mara Bush Camp to be a great place to stay. The staff and facilities were great. We were close to animals and did not have to do long game drives to see animals.

Super comfort in unspoilt bush. Unfenced camp with Masai guides to escort you to and fro at nightfall. Good food, friendly staff, knowledgable guides and personable manager make for a wonderful stay. As for the animal sightings don't get me started.......!

The Mara Bush Camp is the place to be if you want to experience true bush camping, wonderful and friendly staff, great food catered to your needs; and a EcoTourism experience.

Just spent a wonderful three days at this camp. Wonderful staff lead by the manager, Nelson. Excellent guided drives; we saw a wide variety of animals including lions, cheetahs and leopards. Very comfortable spacious tents with quirky bucket showers. Great bar and dining area amongst the trees overlooking the river. We would love to return again to this camp.
