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...

From the moment we got there until the moment we left our stay was perfect. This is my 5th Safari and hands down my favorite. The accommodations are breathtaking. Our tent saw incredibly comfortable. My husband and I normally miss our bed when on vacation, but not here. We slept great. Waking up to the sunrise, on the days that...

We stayed at Mara Bushtops for 2 nights in late September. The property itself is beautiful - rustic yet luxurious at the same time. This camp seemed a little more classic and less modern than some of the other tented camps we stayed in. The dining area was beautiful, more formal than others. The staff was extremely professional and the...

写完了点评才发现貌似需要50个中文字符。Mara Bushtops是我们这次东非旅行(肯尼亚和坦桑尼亚)全程选择的野奢营地系列。虽然来之前在官网上已经口水了很久,但实际入住后仍然觉得太不可思议了。真是太奢华太享受了。各种的惊喜,超大超酷的套房,大量的动物,超棒的越野车和丛林向导,丛林早餐,落日品酒,美食大餐,丛林徒步,热气球,民俗村,水疗等等,只恨时间太短了。一定要再来再来! I am so lucky to be able to stay at Mara Bushtops Camps for two nights, although it is actually too short. The view and location is great, overlooking the bush and nature salt lick (I am told it is the biggest nature salt lick in Masai Mara). Animals always comes to the salt lick to eat salt....

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
