We arrived in Kenya Bush Tops after first staying at their sister Camp Bush Tops in the Serengeti. It was apparent from the onset that this was a special place. Aside from luxurious tented accommodations the environment was so perfect for your first time experience on Safari. As we were 2 couples we were fortunate to have had a wonderful... More

This place was truly amazing in every way and has such a wonderful staff running it. We stayed three nights and for us it was the perfect amount. We arrived via a very small plane and were greeted with food and drinks. We then rode a short way to camp and the entire trip was full of animals. We were... More

Absolutely perfect for a honeymoon safari. We started our honeymoon here with a 3 day stay. Everything was impeccable. The staff are so friendly and attentive,the food ( esp the Kenyan speciality) is delicious, and the tents are beautiful. The staff went out of their way to make it special, including a Romantic breakfast in the game reserve. Our butler... More

The Leopard tent was a perfect venue for a family to visit the Masai Mara. The room was incredible and the views of the animals visiting the salt lick were equally impressive. What might have been more incredible was the service of the staff. From game drives expertly led by Kiarie to a birthday breakfast in the bush cooked by... More

Not having been to Africa before, doing a safari was an added layer of interest. It helped being met on arrival in Nairobi to connect to the smaller airport and once in the Mara, Bushtops made everything a dream come true. Yes the roads are non existent, which are part of the experience, the resort, ' tent', food, service is... More

We stayed 6 nights at Mara Bushtops at the end of July. We did two full day game drives, an early morning game drive, a walking safari, a night safari and various other drives around the conservancy. We would highly recommend staying on a conservancy where you can do the night drive and walking safari. Our walking safari was one... More

The planning was taken care of by the venue and our wedding contact Claudia was always on hand via email to answer any questions and help with the details such as photographer, flowers, cake etc. The legal side of the marriage...

We booked this trip through Imagine Africa (little plug there - they were good!) and pretty much took their recommendation to create the perfect honeymoon. This safari lodge (I can't really call it a 'camp' because that sounds like we were roughing it - we definitely weren't!!) was at the higher end of our budget but for a once-in-a-lifetime experience,...

We flew in from Nairobi and stayed for the weekend at Bushtops. Nicolas and Joseph picked us up from the airport in their game-viewer. We already saw a lot of game on the way to the camp in the Bushtops conservancy. Philipp and his team of staff warmly greeted us at the reception. After having enjoyed the view from the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The words "exclusive" and "luxurious" are often exaggerations: at Mara Bushtops they fit like a glove. Watching from your own 100 square metre private deck as an abundance of wildlife congregates around the adjacent salt lick is, literally, unforgettable. Having your butler draw your hot tub after a spectacular game drive is heaven while our award-winning safari spa takes Wild Luxury to new heights. Together, these experiences create an oasis of five-star luxury, blending peace with adventure. ... more   less
