Completely brilliant. I have never stayed anywhere so magnificent. The service was impeckable - we were made to feel very special. Extremely helpful - we needed car parts to be flown in and they sorted us out at no extra cost. Tiny downside was a noisy family in the diningroom on one of the nights. We were moved, but it...

Time of our lives!!! We had a fantastic experience with Bushtops. We were very lucky to see the wildebeest migration out of season. We came specifically for the Mark Gee photography workshops. Mark is a fantastic photographer and we learnt so much about night photography on the three day workshop. The camp itself is very intimate and the service is...

Wonderfully located accommodation in it's own private reserve with luxury tents where all comforts have been thought of, the flora and fauna guide books in the rooms are a nice touch. But the staff while friendly are intrusive, it is a small hotel and each member of staff will ask you how you day has been several times a day,...

Mara Bushtops is without doubt The place for a 5 star luxury safari. I am sure that there are many other camps that offer similar experiences but what truly sets this camp apart is its location and the quality of the Rangers and spotters. Location - its restaurant overlooks the biggest salt lick on the reservation, thus the wildlife it...

This place was truly amazing in every way and has such a wonderful staff running it. We stayed three nights and for us it was the perfect amount.

The Leopard tent was a perfect venue for a family to visit the Masai Mara. The room was incredible and the views of the animals visiting the salt lick were equally impressive. What might have been more incredible was the service of the staff. From game drives expertly led by Kiarie to a birthday breakfast in the bush cooked by...

Not having been to Africa before, doing a safari was an added layer of interest. It helped being met on arrival in Nairobi to connect to the smaller airport and once in the Mara, Bushtops made everything a dream come true.

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
