The rooms are a good size, food is generally good and there are the nice touches like hot water bottles in the evening and the hot tub (although with the number of flies thrashing about it and the fact you couldn't take a shower for 3 hours afterwards because all the hot water gets used up in the hot tub...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your experience at Bushtops. Naturally we are very upset to hear that your time with us did not come up to expectations. As you note, and as underlined by general feedback, we have a strong reputation for service and friendliness. However, we take all criticism as constructive, so will do all...

This is a outstanding property in the middle of the bush of the Serengeti . Meals and services were over the top. The tents were gorgeous and really felt like you had your own private home. This was by far the best camp we stayed in Tanzania!

Rooms: The family tent, where we stayed, had a bridge to combine two equal tents. The location is near the restaurant tent and very convenient. Service: Before we stayed in Mara bushtops, where the service was absolutely perfect. The first dinner we were a little disappointed, as the waiters were in such a rush - efficient, but almost too efficient,...

This is the Four Seasons, if you will, of all Safari Camps. Everything was outstanding and the service, lodging, amenities and meals were over the top. You will not be disappointed. Although Called a Camp, it's really "glamping" with amenities that surpass any resort. There's even a zero edge pool. Simply the best. Period.

We have travelled extensively and stayed and many luxury hotels and hotel chains and we have never had luxury like at Bush Tops. The level of service and attention to detail is higher than anything we have experienced before. The “tent” is essentially a luxurious hotel suite, but more beautiful, with its own deck looking out onto the Serengeti plain...

We stayed for four wonderfully pampered, luxurious nights after a climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. Our tent was the Kopjes tent and maybe a 5 minute walk from the dining area. We were constantly offered golf cart rides to and from our tent as it was one of the farthest away (we enjoyed the walk and declined the...

Four of us went here to pamper ourselves after hiking kilimanjaro and stayed for 3 nights. It was a great decision! This experience is still fresh on our minds 3 months later. Highlights: - Outstanding service. We had a butler and were offered drinks any time we spent time in the main tent. Our driver/guide Jaffrey was great. - The...

After a short flight we were greeted by our Ranger 'Deus' and Spotter 'Yusuf' who served snacks with a welcome cold bottle of beer and or wine. What a welcome! Then off for a drive, where we saw a large number of animals. When we arrived at the camp the ever enthusiastic manager 'Pantoleous' was there to greet us, he...

We unfortunately only had one night here, although we really enjoyed the limited time we did have. Really fantastic location during the migration – we saw a river crossing just a few minutes after our plane had landed along with cheetah and countless other animals! Check in was very efficient, helpful, and gracious. All the service was great. We received...

There is nothing else that you need or want at Serengetti Bushtops; the set up is incredible, the staff are attentive, very caring and friendly, the tents are big and luxurious (your own hot tub looks out to the Serengetti). We stayed for 3 nights for our honeymoon and whilst it was a lot more than we were initially hoping...
