We had an ecology PhD in our group, and Simon's contributions to the conversations were very well placed and additive ... a hard challenge given our groups enthusiasm for wildlife, birds, and...

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.

We had a wonderful two night stay at Mara Bush Camp - Private Wing. The accommodation, in very comfortable, spacious tents, was excellent as were the staff and food. Our game drives were very successful as we saw so many animals and birds, all pointed out by our knowledgeable driver/guide, Arnold. Watching the hippos wallowing in the river was an...

Last week, my 12-year-old granddaughter and I spent two wonderfully unforgettable days in Mara Bush Camp - Private Wing. This being our first visit to Kenya, we were not sure what to expect, but after a spectacular flight out of Nairobi, stopping at the beautiful Lake Naivasha to pick up more passengers, we were greeted at Olkiombo airstrip by our...

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...

The experience of staying at the Mara Bush Camp was exquisite. Our trip started with a drive that took us to see dozens of animals, including some rare and some of the big five. We saw leopard, black-eared fox, a lion kill-- in addition to the "normal" sightings along the way. The hospitality was unmatched anywhere I have been; the...

Earlier this month my husband and I ended our ten day trip to Kenya with three nights here. We had the Rhino tent. Immaculate. I liked the fact that the tent was bombproof against mosquitoes and yet enabled us to hear the hippos and hyena at night. It was spacious with ensuite facilities and very very comfortable with a huge...

The Mara Bush Camp -Private Wing was the perfect end to our 2-week safari trip. The service is exemplary - the camp is located in such a beautiful area - and the most fun luxury tent accommodations, with hippos as our nearby neighbors.
