Richard's Camp


... also known as Richard's Forest Camp, is located in the Mara Ol Chorro sector of the Maasai Mara in Southwest Kenya.

This camp is owned and sometimes personally hosted and guided by Richard Roberts, whose family has been working with the Maasai here for generations. Richard is a keen aerobatics pilot and has his own plane in camp, which is available for scenic flights around the area.

The camp itself is simple but elegant, with all the touches that one would expect from an old Kenyan family. The simple mess famously features a suit of armour, whilst the six guests tents are tucked away around the edge of a clearing in the riverine forest.

Richard's Camp is a decent option, but one which we feel is disadvantaged by the size, quality and position of its concession area. However the flying safari is gut-wrenchingly fantastic.
