Richard's Camp

Kleines, exklusives Camp in der Mara North Conservancy

Richard’s River Camp was initially established as Richard and Liz’s ‘home away from home’ in 2006 when their son Willoughby was born. Perfectly situated on the banks of the Njageteck River in the private Mara North Conservancy, the camp allows for total privacy and exclusivity. The Ngoyanai springs provide permanent water, drawing in large numbers of animals to the area around camp. This camp is also particularly known for its resident lion pride which can often been seen hunting right in front of the camp, and most always can be heard roaring during the night.

With only seven tents, this camp is ideal for individuals as well as exclusive groups who wish to experience the Masai Mara in a personal intimate setting. Beautifully appointed with furnishings and fabrics collected by Liz on her travels - the result is a casually luxurious tented camp, combining exceptional wildlife with a contemporary ‘Out of Africa’ experience.

Despite our camps’ small size and remote location, our kitchen will happily cater for almost any food preferences. Our chefs have trained at various kitchens across Kenya and have amassed a wide range of culinary skills and cooking methods. If the weather permits, dining is usually outdoors with a beautiful candle-lit table, however, you will also be treated to bush dinners under a canopy of stars using a simple eco-charcoal oven, and breakfast buffets out on the Mara plains - incredible dining experiences, not easily forgotten. We also offer traditional African food that is very popular with our guests.

Please let us know your food preferences in advance - whether you require gluten-free or vegetarian dishes and if you have any allergies, so that we may prepare well in advance for your stay. We offer a large range of soft drinks, beers, house wines and selected house spirits, which are inclusive in the rate, however, should you wish for a particular wine or spirit to be available during your stay with us, we will try to arrange it at an extra cost - please inform us in advance.

Mineral water is provided in all the rooms and on activities. We try to minimize plastic waste so whilst all of our drinking water is mineral water, we decant it from large recyclable containers; bottled water is used only on activities.

Richard’s River Camp offers day and night game drives, birding and scenic bush walks, sundowners, bush meals and cultural visits to a local Masai Village nearby. At an additional cost are hot air balloon flights, please try to book these in advance with us.

For the last three generations, the Roberts families have played an integral part for conservation in Kenya. In 2011 Richard and Liz founded the Mara Elephant Project, which is instrumental in human-wildlife conflict mitigation and anti-poaching through the collaring, monitoring and tracking of elephants. With a dedicated team, MEP is achieving great results in reducing elephant poaching; please see the MEP Facebook page ‘Mara Elephant Project’ for current updates.
