Kenya - Mara Bush Camp


Mara Bush Camp is a luxurious seasonal camp guaranteeing an authentic Africa experience at the highest level. All tents are 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 luxury tents impresses with an incomparable atmosphere. You will feel the relaxation of the secluded camp hidden in the bush with its location right next to Olare Orok river. Thus you are in pure wilderness, especially because there are no fences and wildlife can move freely. At night you decide yourself how long you listen to the unusual and fascinating background noise before you take your well-deserved sleep in your comfortable bed. Certainly the hippos are only a few metres away. 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 built on belongs to the Maasai. Luxurious and tasteful furnished communal areas complete a perfect stay. This includes a dining tent, a photo lounge, and another lounge tent with bar. Capture your special moments and take lots of unique safari pictures or videos while enjoying luxury in the bush at the same time. Mara Bush Camp awaits you!
