Mara Bush Camp

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 it is situated in heart of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Mara Bush Camp is small & offers personalized services while providing all amenities to make you feel at home. Get spoilt after an exhilarating day out in the bush in your luxurious walk–in tent with a spacious veranda overlooking the Olare Orok & its numerous hippos.




The camp is for the visitor who appreciates simplicity and privacy away from mass tourism and who supports an eco-friendly approach. Perfect for photographers as Mara Bush Camp offers a fantastic photo-lounge to hold workshops or simply charge camera equipment. Best is the location as it is in "big cat territory" with fantastic sightings all year round, also close proximity to the Migration points for river crossings.
