Wild luxury

HR-Bushtops-Spa-2014-120.1What could be better for mind, body and soul than a safari and spa combo in the African bush?

Spotlight on Mara Bushtops
Bushtops is a trio of luxury camps (two in the Tanzanian Serengeti and one in Kenya’s Masai Mara) with a winning formula of idyllic accommodation, sensational settings and exemplary service. In addition, at their original camp, Mara Bushtops, they have established the Amani African Spa Village, recently recognised as Africa’s best safari spa, as announced by the World Luxury Spa Awards. The accolade adds to recent recognition from the World Spa Awards (Best Safari Spa in Africa) and the Luxury Travel Guide Global Awards (2015 winner).

Imagine a setting in which you are pampered while gazing out at nature’s wonders. Mara Bushtops’ Spa overlooks a natural salt lick, so, as the sun beats down on your increasingly relaxed body, your eyes can feast on a procession of African wildlife. All the while, the strong fingers of your highly trained spa staff knead you into a state of utter bliss, using Terres d’Afrique organic skincare products, which combine advanced photo-technology with inspiration from the traditional use of African plants.
