Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Set amid the Mara Bushtops private Conservancy and bordering the Masai Mara, Mara Bushtops boasts a sensational location.
Perched on top of a hill with a scenic valley to one side, the camp lies just 15 to 20 minutes’ drive from the main gate of the National Park and within striking distance of the beautiful Mara River where the famous river crossing of wildebeest and zebras takes place during the migration. Nestled on the edge of this intoxicating scene, we’ve created an oasis of five-star luxury for serious safari seekers.Download Fact Sheet
Mara Bushtops has been designed to blend into its surroundings, minimizing our visual and environmental impact, whilst providing every comfort to our guests. 12 spacious and fabulously appointed luxury tents (think of a 5-star hotel room, under canvas) can be found by following private paths from a shared space, to secluded havens of privacy and calm. Every fixture, fitting, texture, surface, material and ornament has been chosen carefully by talented architects and designers.
At the heart of the camp are our reception, lounge and dining areas, incorporating a fine wine cellar, a bar and library. A deck and infinity pool provide additional space to wind down, read, chat or snooze. Settle into a chair on our wooden decking, then gaze across the Conservancy to the distant hills, with nothing to disturb your view or peace of mind. One of the crowning glories of Mara Bushtops is the Amani Spa, where you can enjoy anything from a massage to a facial, hydrotherapy session to skin treatments, fitness workout to a sauna, Jacuzzi to a swim. Our cool outdoor infinity pool complements the Spas heated pool – bringing you closer to nature. This is the perfect spot for a refreshing splashfollowed by sundried relaxation, perhaps with a chilled drink for company.
Ride in the tracks of the big five on an unforgettable game drive into the heart of the Masai Mara. Travelling in one of our specially converted 4x4s, youll be in the very best seats for game viewing, while our highly qualified driver-guides will make sure you get some rare glimpses of wildlife that youll never forget. You can set off at sunrise for a half- or full days drive, or, because were situated on our own vast private ranch, you can venture out after dark for a high-adrenalin nocturnal safari. A walking safari and bush breakfast is always fascinating, but you may prefer a break from the wildlife. A tour of a local school provides an education (were never too old to learn), whilst visiting a traditional Masai village showcases just how different yet similar we all are. And of course, when the activity gets too much, its time to relax in the Spa, in your tent, or in our shared spaces.
