At Mara Bushtops, you step into a world where nature and contemporary comfort blend into one. Wander through a timeless space, where natural wooden decking links the sun-drenched outdoors to cool interiors; where fine furnishings reflect the elegance of African culture; and where your luxury tent affords spacious privacy, yet as close to nature as one can get. This camp with luxury tents is set amongst the rich wildlife of the Masai Mara. Experience 'civilised' wilderness-living, in inimitable style, comfort, freedom, and breathtaking views. The restaurant and lounge overlooks a watering hole, adjacent to a natural salt-lick, attracting an abundance of game. The camp fire, located just outside the restaurant, is a perfect location for that evening sundowner.
Each tent at Mara Bushtops has been located to maximise privacy. They are nestled on the side of a hill, with an expansive wooden deck, overlooking the Siana Hills. The 100 square meter living space is equipped with pressurised hot and cold water taken from a nearby fresh water spring supplying both inside and outside power showers. A 24 hour, 240 volt, electrical supply is mostly generated by solar power. The interior decoration is in Modern African style and every attention to detail has been made to create the ultimate comfort in the bush. Tents can be configured for double or twin beds. The deck also boasts a unique sunken hot tub, made from local timber, for a truly amazing experience. After a full-days game drive, this is relaxation in style, especially when complimented by a chilled bottle of Chardonnay from the Cape Region.
No Safari camp is complete without its water hole, and what better time to observe the comings and goings in this wildlife focal point, than over a lavish meal in a superb restaurant? The dining room and outdoor spacious veranda overlooks a vibrant scene where an abundance of game comes to drink and bathe throughout the day and evening, and any romantic dinner for two in this dreamlike venue is magically enhanced by the very elegant and friendly service. Here you can whet your appetite for both game viewing and fine dining at once, selecting from a choice of sumptuous a la carte dishes while the wildlife provides natural entertainment.
Plunge into the cool blue waters of the private pool and touch the infinity of the landscape. Where gentle ripples meet the horizon, you can float and dream amid spectacular views, suspended before a vast and seemingly endless backdrop of hazy plains and purple mountains. Dip into pure luxury and dry in the balmy African breeze on the sun-drenched deck, totally refreshed.
Ride in the tracks of the ‘big five’ on an unforgettable Game Drive into the heart of the Masai Mara. Travelling in one of the specially converted 4 x 4’s, either on your own, in a private party, or with a group of other guests, you’ll be in the very best seats for game viewing, while the highly qualified driver-guides will make sure you get some rare glimpses of wildlife that you’ll never forget. You can set off at sunrise for a half- or full day’s drive, or, because we’re situated on our own vast private ranch, you can venture out after dark for a high-adrenalin nocturnal Safari.
Within the soothing confines of the Spa, rejuvenating massages, hydrotherapy and a range of holistic skin and body treatments are complemented by a fitness facility, complete with high-tech cardiovascular and weight training equipment. A sauna, Rasul steam room (featuring multi-sensory Arabian mud cleansing treatments) and hot Jacuzzi vie for attention with a heated infinity pool – with beds inside the pool complete with water jets. There is also a cold plunge pool to take the edge of the heat. There is also the simple glory of the wooden relaxation deck, providing uninterrupted views of the camp’s salt lick and the majestic African Bush.
