Before visiting mara bushtops, I did a lot of Internet search and have high expectation. To my surprise, mara bushtops surpasses my expectation, and redefines hospitality and luxury a safari camp can achieve. We stayed at the leopard (family) tent, which offered unbeatable bush plain scenery right in front of you accompanied with many kinds of wild animals (impala, buffalo,...

I have gone on four other safari's in Kenya, and this camp is my favorite by far. The camp grounds were beautiful and amazing. My family came to visit me over Christmas, so we chose the family tent. It had two separate rooms and bathrooms, a living room, bar, large deck, and fire pit. The food was five star as...

Never before has a Safari holiday been so much fun or accommodating. These two words might sound like contradictions, but from the moment we stepped into the Mara Bushtops, you are aware that you are in a camp where the game is highly accessible, but where at the same time, the setup and staff go to every effort to make...

OK...I was hesitant to go on safari. Wild animals and "roughing it" aren't my idea of a great vacation. If you're like me, and you want to take the family to see amazing animals, you'll stay here. The "tents" aren't really tents. They are structures with a bathroom, hot tub, telescope for spotting animals walking right outside your tent and...

As in previous years, the Mara Bushtops Camp was again the starting point for my game drives. Many thanks to the management and staff of Mara Bushtops for making my stay at this natural habitat of god's creatures so special again. There are too many names to list the staff individually. Each and every one of them has done his...

Breathtaking, stunning and a highlight of our stay in the Masai Mara. Could not fault this property, everything from the staff, guides, vehicles, food and accommodation was above and beyond our expectations. We loved it here and did not want to leave. The game viewing was fantastic. An incredible place, luxury at its best without being over the top. It...

As a travel wholesaler specialising in selling African lodges i have certainly stayed in many over the years. I would rate Mara Bushtops as one of the very best i have had the privilege to visit. The camp is very intimate with only 12 spacious tents all with private facilities and a hot water plunge pool on the deck. The...

Having travelled for all most 15 years to Africa and having visited what I thought was the cream of the cream of luxurious safari Camps over this period turned out to be wrong. Mara Bushtops had the WOW factor that left us speechless from the minute we were collected from the transfer vehicle, professional service, outstanding game drive vehicle and...

My first Bushtops experience was in 2014. To be honest I never had any big desire to go to Kenya, but after going there and having the Bushtops experience, I fell in love with the place, so much so that I return to Bushtops Camps every year. From the first time you arrive, you are made to feel like one...

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
