Mara Bushtops Camp

About Mara Bushtops Camp

This Camp is Located in 

Mara Bushtops is set within our own private wildlife reserve. Alongside the Masai, access to the Conservancy is exclusive to our 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.

Mara Bushtops is a lovely-looking property, upmarket and luxurious, with well-appointed open-sided tents, butler service, and hot tubs. Comfortable main areas include an infinity swimming pool, wine cellar, and a restaurant overlooking a natural salt lick which attracts game.

ACCESS & LOCATION of Mara Bushtops Camp

Mara Bushtops Camp is located in a private conservancy just next to the main Sekenani Gate in Masai Mara National Reserve. The Camp is set on a very nice vantage point with amazing undistracted views of the Mara plains. It’s accessible by flight and by road. The commonly used means is flight access from any location within Kenya.


Mara Bushtops has been designed to blend into its surroundings, minimizing our visual and environmental impact, whilst providing every comfort to our guests. 12 spacious and fabulously appointed luxury tents (think of a 5-star hotel room, under canvas) can be found by the following private paths from a shared space to secluded havens of privacy and calm.

From the comfort and privacy of vast decked tents, our guests gaze out over a private conservancy and constant procession of wildlife. Fully reconnected, they relax in perfect contentment, looking forward to glorious safaris, fine dining, and world-class pampering.

ACTIVITIES AT Mara Bushtops Camp

Game Drives

For most of our guests, their safari highlight is the full-day game drive – a red letter day in a short stay and a repeated pleasure on longer visits.

On the road is where our fully-equipped open-sided 4×4 Landcruisers come into their own: there is no better way to cross the Mara plains in search of wildlife, or maximize spotting opportunities.


As the sun slips from view and the clouds flood the horizon with color, we complete your evening game drive in our private Conservancy by installing you in the perfect spot, complete with a cocktail, bonfire, and good company. As the sounds of the night start to take over, the cares of the world will never have seemed so far away!

Balloon Safaris

Imagine a balloon, framed against the rising sun, overlooking vast herds across Africa’s wide horizons. To share such a transformative moment, you’ll leave Mara Bushtops in the early hours, to be airborne as dawn breaks. As you level out over the Masai Mara, a panoramic view touches the heart and quickens the senses.

Guided Safari Walks

Your qualified guide will bring you to within a safe distance of impala herds, zebra, and sometimes giraffes, explaining the tracks, markings, droppings, and plant life around you, whilst adding insights into Masai culture. You may never get closer to nature at its most raw and unspoiled!
