Kenya - Mara Bush Camp Private Wing

INFORMATION

Mara Bush Camp Private Wing is a luxurious seasonal eco-camp of superlatives! It is located directly at the shores of Olare Orok river in Southwestern Kenya, right within the world famous Maasai Mara which is one of the richest places on earth regarding wildlife concentration. The distance to the crossing points where huge herds of wildebeest and zebras cross Mara river - a real natural spectacle - is only 30 minutes. The camp with its 12 very big luxury tents impresses with an incomparable atmosphere. The interaction between nature, luxury, and privacy is implemented perfectly. Every wish you have will be anticipated by the friendly staff and you will find yourself in another world, namely right in the middle of wildlife. During darkness the unusual background noise is responsible that some guests rather listen to laughing hyaenas after a successful hunt or to the up to 100 decibels of hippos rahter than fall asleep on the feelgood mattresses immediately. All tents are build on stilts and inspire with tasteful interior at the highest level. On private verandas with sofa you enjoy the bush in a special way and during the early mornings tee, coffee, or hot chocolate, and home-baked biscuits are served here even before breakfast. The camp is not protected by fences to enable wildlife a free movement. Therefore Maasai warriors will always escort you to your tent, especially during night-time. The majority of the staff is Maasai and the land where the camp is build on belongs to the Maasai. Outstanding furnished communal areas complete a perfect stay. This includes a spacious dining tent, a photo lounge, and another lounge tent with bar next to the river. Besides, you may reserve the hippo veranda for breakfast to enjoy a perfect start into the day in private atmosphere while you watch the hippos bathing. An unforgettable luxurious experience awaits you at Mara Bush Camp Private Wing!
