Soon, we will return to a (new) normal - but in the meantime, Bushtops has been making changes to ensure Wild Luxury comes with safety at its heart.

To help you plan ahead, here is what we are putting in place to ensure our guests at Mara Bushtops, Serengeti Bushtops, and Roving Bushtops stay protected and reassured.
There is no need to commit a deposit on any new bookings for stays between now and up until 20 December 2020. All we ask is that payment in full reaches us no later than 2 weeks before arrival in Camp.

Deferred visits
Any booking for 2020 can be deferred to a future date as part of our Corona deferral policy, without penalty and at 2020 rates (unless there is a season change). We will ask for a deposit to secure the new booking.

Added value
- Anyone visiting us in 2020 (up to 20 December) will be allocated their own private vehicle, at no extra cost.

- After 21st December 2020 and throughout 2021, private vehicles will be half price.
Bookings from 21 December 2020 onward. 

- We will return to our usual terms and conditions for stays from 21 December 2020 onward.  However, if Covid-19 continues to limit freedom of movement, the flexible measures introduced for 2020 flexibility will be reviewed (free deferrals).
All our Camps are private to Bushtops guests.  Visitors to Bushtops can be reassured of their safety and security, through the following health-related steps:

Transfers to Camps
- Air operators sanitize their planes every morning and between flights. Flight crew and passengers have their temperature taken before each flight and everyone is asked to wear a face mask. Social distancing is practiced during check-in and hand sanitizers are available everywhere.

- Guests' luggage will be sanitized on arrival. 

- Anyone wanting to avoid internal flights in Kenya (for Mara Bushtops stays) can book a private road transfer from Nairobi to Camp and back.

On arrival at our camps, our guests can be reassured that cleanliness and hygiene are priorities. 

- Our staff have easy access to hand washing and hand sanitizing. Temperatures are taken twice a day, with full records kept. Any flu-like symptoms are rigorously monitored. 

- Following any time spent away from Camp, Bushtops team members are only allowed back on duty once health checks indicate they are fit and healthy. None of our staff members commute. The teams live on site.

- All staff are trained to keep their distance from guests. They strictly follow our no hand shaking policy as well as sneezing and coughing etiquette.

Game Drives
- All our vehicles are open sided, allowing healthy air to pass. Game drives are conducted by a Ranger and a Spotter, though anyone wanting to limit human contact can opt to venture out with just a Ranger.

- Rangers and spotters wear face masks and wash or sanitize their hands frequently whilst on game drives/transfers.

- Each vehicle is thoroughly disinfected every morning before receiving guests and on return to the camp after a game drive.

Shared spaces
- We have introduced a contactless check-in procedure.

-Sanitation protocols govern all shared spaces, such as the restaurant, lounge and reception areas. Hand sanitizers are located throughout the Camps.

Tented suites
Bushtops' rigorous standards of hygiene have been taken up a level, with all tent suites being thoroughly cleaned and sanitized at least twice a day. You can have as much or as little butler service as you wish.

- All our meals are a la carte, so there is no chance of buffet contamination. Tables are well spaced, to support social distancing. Bush breakfasts and lunches are made to order and individually packed, under strict hygiene standards.

- These strict hygiene standards are maintained in the kitchen, where all our chefs and stewards wear face masks.

- All cutlery, crockery, glassware and linen used when dining is kept scrupulously clean. Laminated menus are sanitized after every use.

- The same standards are maintained when serving meals in the privacy of the tent suites or within the camp grounds.
As we all recover from lockdown, Africa's wide-open spaces have never seemed so attractive. An absence of visitors has refreshed the game parks, with fewer visitors making the wildlife even more enticing.
