Mara Bushtops

Mara Bushtops is set within a private wildlife reserve, alongside the Masai, access to the Conservancy is exclusive to Bushtops guests, who benefit from private night and off-road game drives, walking safaris direct from the Camp, sundowners, sunrises on the Sekenani hill and visits to the nearby Kakiya cave. Within Mara Bushtops camp, you’ll find an exciting blend of tranquility and adventure where you can relax in first class comfort surrounded by one of nature’s living masterpieces.

Embracing a philosophy of environmental conservation, Mara Bushtops makes the most of natural resources as well as modern amenities. The camp uses solar power for most of its energy needs. The on-site award wining Amani African Spa Village offers guests a solar-heated swimming pool, cold pool, jacuzzi, sauna, rasul and gym all overlooking wildlife at the salt lick. With a magical atmosphere day and night, dining at Mara Bushtops is an integral part of an unforgettable experience.

Room Information

Mara Bushtops has been designed to blend into its surroundings, minimizing the visual and environmental impact, whilst providing every comfort to 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. Opening on three sides, the tents are named after the wildlife which can be seen wandering past the Camp. Bounded by more than a 1,000 square-feet of private wooden decking, each tent has its own hot tub on the deck, an outside shower, writing desk, dining table and telescope. All tents are equipped with a safe, hair dryer, 220v AC.

Leopard Suite
Overlooking Mara Bushtops’ famous salt lick and its wildlife, the suite’s central lounge connects two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. By adding a bed to each room, Leopard can accommodate a family of six in glorious style. The lounge is a shared space, ideal for an afternoon siesta, game or magic moment – inspired perhaps by the suite’s fireplace, floral display, wine wall and mini bar.
