We went in March is is low season and we had the safari camp to ourselves and got a good deal. It was like a our own private safari. The safari tours were fantastic as the Guides were excellent and were local masai, which was so interesting. The safari vehicles were open window for better viewing and the accommodation was...

We ( myself and my two children aged 23 and 21) arrived at Richard's on my birthday and immediately we were welcomed like old friends.

We stayed here in September 2008 and words can’t describe how incredible our stay was. It may be going too far but I would say this was the best 3 days of my life, really. We had a spacious luxury tent which felt quite secluded, but at the same time you only needed to call out and a member of...

When my fiancé suggested a safari for our honeymoon, I had my doubts. All reservations and doubts dissolved when we arrived at Richard’s Camp. Our hosts, JJ and Edwina, were wonderful and our guide made our experience unforgettable. Everything was perfect, from watching the sun set in the Mara, to seeing the wildebeest migration to a candlelit dinner with hippos....

Back from an incredible holiday in Kenya which included a stay at Richard's fabulous camp. I could have stayed there for weeks (months even!). What could be better than eating outside, under the stars, listening to the sounds of the animals as they make their way out to hunt? Waking up at 2am to hear hippos munching grass at the...

I spent two nights at Richard's Camp in low season where despite heavy rain and flooding, the mood remained extremely positive and the service was always with a smile. The game drives were quite outstanding watching a lioness and her cubs, two stalking lions, leopard (!) croc, birdlife and hippo/topi/buffalo/wildebeest/gazelle galore with Richard and Sedera our experienced spotter. The other...

We are a family with four small children, aged 3,5,7 and 9. Contrary to popular advice in the UK, we took them all with us to Kenya for the most amazing holiday we have ever had. We started at Richards Camp and wish we were still there. Liz and RIchard (the Camp Owners) could not have been more accomodating and...

I had absolutely no idea that I would enjoy this so much. Persuaded to go by my family, I was dubious - not convinced that luxury camping was me; pretty sure I prefer my wild animals on a TV screen, and my food in a good restaurant; concerned about the whole rich-people-exploit-the-poor-world set up. And we were going with two...

“Any tent is wonderful. They were working on a new, large, family tent while we were there. It would be perfect for small groups that want to stay together and share a common living area in the tent.”

“All the tents have a great location and private , enough space between each one .”

“All tents are luxurious and even though you are in the wilderness it creates the feeling of warmth and comfort, even to the welcome addition of a hot water bottle put into your bed while you are dining. Which is most welcome on chilly evenings.”
