6 Nights / 7 Days Private Road Safari to Masai Mara
Mara Bush Camp offers you everything desired in an “authentic safari experience”! Discreetly ‘tucked away’ in a riverine forest on the banks of the seasonal Olare Orok River with an excellent location close to Ol kiombo airstrip, it is situated in heart of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve.
All 12 river front tents have been placed far enough apart to guarantee complete tranquillity and privacy. All tents are furnished with a comfortable 4 poster bed (double/ twin available on request) mosquito net, en-suite bathrooms and safari style shower, clothes rack & storage chest, writing desk & private veranda.
Additional features are a comfortable Lounge and Bar Tent as well as a private Dining Tent where a selection of freshly prepared meals , mostly buffet style, are served by our in-house chef, who caters for all dietary requests happily . Our chef will also ensure that picnic meals are readily available for all those who prefer to stay out in the bush all day long. For photographers, a separate Photo- Lounge to charge camera equipment and laptops has been set up. The little boutique shop compliments the set-up and one can purchase unique souvenirs to take home.
Unwind around a cozy campfire under the African stars whilst reminiscing about your day in the wild. The Camp is fully solar powered, but a generator (well tucked away to ensure complete silence) is available to provide power as a back-up system.
Mara Bush Camp is not fenced, therefore Maasai ‘Moranis’ (Warriors) will look out for your safety while you are sleeping.
The little luxury Camp is for the visitor who appreciates maximum privacy away from mass tourism and wants to enjoy an authentic ‘safari’ experience rather than a large, touristic lodge with swimming pool & entertainment.
