Perfectly situated on the banks of the Njageteck River in the Mara North Conservancy, the camp allows for total privacy and exclusivity. The Ngoyanai springs provide permanent water, drawing in large numbers of animals to the area around camp. This camp is also particularly known for its resident lion pride which can often been seen hunting in front of the camp, and often herd roaring at night.

What an amazing place to captivate your attention of the magic of nature. Each luxury tent is wonderfully appointed with yummy bedding, great outdoor private shower and more. The dining is great and the hosts and trackers are terrific. The Mara is a must and so is this camp.

This place is superb. Chic, relaxed, classy with a level of understated luxury you’d be hard pushed to find in the Mara. The food is healthy and delicious, and the staff so genuinely friendly and attentive. The most wonderful feature is the amazing guides... they are pros, and just know the area so well... we saw it all!

We spend 3 nights in the most marvelous setting, great luxury tents, delicious food with the most caring and fun staff. We were a big group with children from 2 to 16, the staff made sure everyone had a blast, care fir all our food cravings and made sure we saw all the animals we expected to!

A perfect location, wonderful team and delicious food. We had the most amazing time at Richard's Camp. Daisy, Hunter and the team were incredible. Nothing was too much trouble. Our guide, John, was wonderful, finding amazing sights for us at every turn and educating us about the animals and the Masai way of life. Highlights included a leopard close to camp, the most beautiful cheetahs (one mother with 6 cubs that we saw every day of our visit), roaring lions and a small valley filled with elephants. The landscape and the animals were just awe-inspiring. A never-to-be-forgotten anniversary dinner in the bush with our own camp fire was fantastic - thank you to the whole Richard's Camp team. We were so sad to leave and determined to return.
