SO MUCH MORE TO DO AND SEE!

Mara Bush Camp offers extra activities to do whilst you are on your safari. Experience the wild like you’ve never experienced before!

GAME DRIVES

Custom built 4×4 safari vehicles are stationed at the camp and can be booked during your stay on exclusive use, with an experienced professional driver guide. All our driver guides are certified by the Kenya Professional Guides Association and are very knowledgeable in flora & fauna of the Mara. 

BALLOON SAFARI

This is a wonderful way to experience the magnificent landscape and amazing wildlife from an Ariel view. A true highlight of every Safari in East Africa! We are glad to book and organize for you a memorable Balloon Safari with the most professional 

The Balloon crew will pick you up as early as 5 am in the morning for a drive to the starting point of the Balloon ride. Enjoy a one hour ride in the air above the amazing Savanna with your experienced Balloon Pilot. A sumptuous Champagne breakfast awaits you upon landing to crown the memorable experience. 

The booking should be made at least 01 day in advance with our manager.

SUNDOWNER

During your afternoon/evening game drive you will discover a table & camping chairs set up at the nearby river/hippo pools. This is a private arrangement, especially for you! Choose your sun downer from a selection of spirits, house wine, beer and soft drinks. Get spoilt with homemade canapés while watching the sun go down over African plains and hippos huddle right in front of you… listen to the sounds of the night setting in.

PRIVATE BUSH DINNER

The most romantic idea (weather per-mitting) is to have a dinner for 2 under the stars. It is perfect for honeymooners or anyone who wants more than the usual privacy.

A table, away from the main dining mess tent is set up surrounded by trees and bushes, lanterns are placed to add to the romantic set-up, just for you and your partner.

Your personal waiter will serve you a 4 course delicious barbecued style meal with a bottle of wine (red /white) as well as unlimited soft drinks are available with compliments of the house.

BUSH WALK

Have you ever thought of exploring the African bush on foot? Our Walking Team (accompanied by an armed ranger) will be happy to guide you through this walking safari outside the reserve. Look out for the small five, plants, learn how to identify animal tracks and differentiate the droppings of Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra and other wildlife.

Take the challenge a notch higher and identify the bones and skeletons you may come across whilst enjoying the endless panoramic view of the savanna grasslands ahead. Walks are available both in morning or afternoon. Duration is between 2-3 hours (or to your liking also shorter).

CHILDREN ACTIVITIES

An exciting adventure awaits the young ones at Mara Bush Camp and Private Wing with various activities conducted by our Maasai guide and our Camp Manager.

The children will have a rare opportunity to learn the Maasai ways of life and their daily chores such as cooking African food, the art of stringing real Maasai beads, playing typical board games, listening to African stories, reading Children story books available in both English & German as well as playing with African toys.

Parents are encouraged to discuss the activities beforehand with our Camp Manager.

OL MALAIKA HOME

The Trust is located right on the edge of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in the little town of Sekenani. The Olmalaika Home – is a safe haven for girls under the age of 12 yrs all the way down to newborns that have endured trauma in their lives, such as female genital mutilation, childhood marriage, rape, incest, assault, abuse, abandonment, etc. The Trust not only provides a safe and loving home where they can find healing, but also enable them to get their education. On weekends and holidays you can visit the home and spend time with the girls, listen to them sing and dance, participate in a typical “day of the girl child” where you might wash clothes in the river, make chapatis, drink some tea made over the fire in their traditional manyatta or simply allow them to teach you how to make a beaded bracelet to take home. On weekdays when they are in school, you can visit the home and meet the staff, play or feed the babies, hear about the girls stories and possibly sample some fresh fruit or vegetable from their garden. The Trust is dependent on donations, but are working on becoming self sustaining by harvesting and selling honey from their own hives and thru the Olmalaika Trust Days for Girls Enterprise – where the staff make fabric reusable menstrual kits. Each kit that is purchased is given to school girls in Kenya so that no girl will miss school because of her period

PRIVATE HIPPO POOL BREAKFAST

Enjoy an exclusive & scrumptious breakfast on our hippo deck whilst watching a large family of hippo bathe in the river and bask in the sun.

Fresh fruit, juice, cereal, eggs to your liking and a glass of sparkling wine as well as anything else you desire during your breakfast. Our chef and your waiter will fulfill any wish you have.

This is one of the most relaxing ways of game viewing whilst enjoying a delicious meal in the morning sun!
