Great service, excellent food and luxury tents in a non fenced Camp. All wild animals as close as it can be. Hippos swimming just outside our veranda. I can really recommend this camp to everyone who looks for a great safari and comfortable living.

The new Mara Bush Camp is even more wonderful than the older camp, with very spacious, well-appointed tents, on raised decks. We had a private deck overlooking Hippo River with a great view of the hippos & crocs. Constant electricity & hot/cold running water...great for spontaneous showers. Masai warriors on guard, and giving excellent personal service, as well as all...
