NIcolas is ever attentive to everyone who enters the camp. Owuar and Josephat will care for in the lounge or by the fire with something to quench your thirst. All the Maisai will...

This was a first - staying in a bush camp instead of the lodges, have to admit it was absolutely incredible. We had the perfect tent by the hippo pool and across a mummy crocodile laying her eggs making the experience completely bushy and very safe with the watchful Masai staff. The sundowner and breakfast in the middle of the...

Our family had a wonderful trip to the Masai Mara in Aug-Sep 2016. All the arrangements by Sunworld Safaris worked out very well.

This was my second trip to Africa. I found the Mara Bush Camp to be a great place to stay. The staff and facilities were great. We were close to animals and did not have to do long game drives to see animals.

Mara Bush Camp in the Masai Mara; the most amazing place I have visited. The drive from Nairobi to the Mara in Sunworld safari 4 wheel drive vehicles, super comfortable as you get to admire the Great Rift Valley. Life in the camp is home but with a wild twist!

Super comfort in unspoilt bush. Unfenced camp with Masai guides to escort you to and fro at nightfall. Good food, friendly staff, knowledgable guides and personable manager make for a wonderful stay. As for the animal sightings don't get me started.......!
