We were at the Mara Bushtops for the Easter Weekend and had a lovely time. I have been to plenty of lodges in the Mara.....but, I would say that the Mara Bushtops is in a class of its own. Vishal of Discover Kenya Safaris - Diani, arranged our bookings. He made sure all was planned well. When we approached the...

Relaxing, great food, spectacular views, seriously comfortable beds, heated pool, and amazing service. Our tour guide, Kiarie, was phenomenal - very professional and highly informed. The spa is a must try. Couldn't have picked a better lodge.

We stayed at both Mara and Serengeti bushtop camps and loved every minute! Both are uniquely different but both have the same perfect service. Food is impeccable and rooms are gorgeous and so comfortable. Staff give a personal service that makes you feel like a friend as well as a guest, will remember this experience always and certainly miss Bushtops...

We booked Mara Bushtops for our 'once in a lifetime' honeymoon and it was the most amazing place! We spent 3 nights and from start to finish it was just perfect! The luxurious tents overlooking the Mara with the outdoor hot tub, the exceptional service from the staff, the delicious food and drink served a la carte, and the gorgeous...

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.

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
