Amazing Home in a Wonderful Park
This was the only place we booked on our safari that wasn't a lodge, so we didn't know what to expect - but we're so unbelievably happy we stayed here! From the moment we arrived, Nelson and his staff made us feel at home, and everything about our time there was amazing. The location inside the park puts you moments from animals when you leave on game drives. The tents feel both luxurious and adventurous, and they come with full working bathrooms inside. You really can hear hippos grunting and moving in the distance at night (which is fascinating), but it always feels very safe with guards on patrol. The food was delicious, the drink menu was very sizable, and the early morning wake-up visits with coffee right on the patio were the best way to start the day. We especially loved just talking to the staff at the camp. On Christmas Eve, after being surprised with a magical sundown barbecue combining all three Soroi camps for the holiday, the two of us sat around the campfire swapping stories with Nelson and his associate Adam for almost two hours. Next to the tree, it really did feel like Christmas, and it was such a wonderful start to our trip that we'll never forget. For the game drives, our guide Dan had grown up in a local Masai village and was a master at finding cool things before the other guide cars. This led to some unbelievable moments (especially with baby lions) and the best photos we've ever taken. We highly recommend getting breakfast to go in the morning and eating it out under an acacia tree. We thought this would just be a one-time trip, but now we can't wait to come back! Asante sana, Mara Bush Camp!
