Richard’s River Camp

SKU: 38026 Category:

Deep in the Mara North Conservancy of Kenya’s Masai Mara, intimate Richard’s River Camp offers the perfect combination of adventure, luxury and personalised safari experience. Overlooking the permanent water source of the Njageteck River, there is plenty of wildlife to be seen from camp including hippo and lion, and prolific game to be seen year round including the famous river crossings of wildebeest and zebra during the great migration. Family-owned and managed, the camp has an authentic and individual feel in everything from the stylish decor to the experienced and knowledgeable local Masai guides who have worked with Roberts family for years.

Casual luxury combining contemporary and antique safari style is the overall decor theme of the seven luxury tents and the main lounge and dining areas. Fabrics and furnishings were collected by Richard and Liz on their travels before setting up River Camp as sister camp to their original Forest Camp in 2013. Very comfortable king size beds, soft armchairs, wooden chests and tables and beautiful light fittings are complemented by a state of the art solar system to provide copious running hot water to the ensuite bathroom, with indoor and outdoor showers and flush toilet. A family tent with two bedrooms connected by a comfortable lounge accommodates those travelling with children. There is wifi in the main tent but with so much “bush TV” to absorb and enthral it’s easy to disconnect and unwind.

A genuine personalised approach prevails with guests choosing activities and preferred pace for each day. Your guide remains with you for your stay, whether you want to spend a full day out game viewing with bush breakfasts and picnic lunches, take a hot air balloon trip continuing into a game drive, or divide the day between game drives, a gentle walk to the hippo pool, or an energetic hike. Interested guests can discover more about the Mara Elephant Project founded by the owners in 2011.The hosts’ exceptional care and attention to detail extends into the delicious meals that take account of dietary restrictions and include fresh salads and herbs grown in the camp garden.

For an authentic Masai Mara safari with personal touches of luxury, Richard’s River Camp is hard to beat.

Luxury Tent

The luxury tents are spacious and beautifully furnished in comfortable safari style. All tents have 24 hour solar lighting.

Each canvas tent is a customized design which allows for significant size, air flow and light. Raised on concrete platforms with low wooden steps, the tent walls are high with netted windows and a lowroof pitch, therefore creating a fantastic airflow and good ventilation throughout. The tents are beige in colour and the ceilings have been covered with hand printed fabric which makes the tent interior brighter compared to the standard dark green canvas in other properties.

The rooms consist of a large bedroom area, behind which there is a dressing room followed by the bathroom. The dressing rooms can accommodate up to two extra beds each should it be required – therefore each standard tent can sleep up to four people.

Bathroom details:
Each tent is en-suite with a flush loo and shower area.
– Hot and cold running water.
– Soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion provided.
– Power system does not support hairdryers, shavers or any other high wattage device.
