Mara Bush Houses

The Mara Bush Houses are a relaxed collection of three individual private houses, designed for large groups of friends or families, taken on an exclusive basis in the heart of Africa's wildest areas.

All three properties come with a full complement of friendly and experienced staff, including a chef, professional safari guide and house manager who are there to ensure guests can build their own itinerary each day creating a flexible and very personal safari experience.

Acacia House & Mara House

These two, three bedroom houses, sitting in the Ol Chorro Losoit Valley, are far away from the crowds in the main reserve in the award winning Mara North Conservancy. Large, comfortable en-suite rooms allows space for everyone, when not relaxing on the open veranda overlooking the properties own game rich waterhole. Both houses share a large outdoor pool surrounded by Acacia trees so there is time to cool off in between activities that include game drives, walks, bush picnics, fly camping and cultural visits. There is also the opportunity for night drives in the area. Flexible meals and mealtimes are either taken in the convivial dining area, or al-fresco if the weather allows at a time and place that suits you.

Topi House

With unrivalled access to the eastern side of the Masai Mara Game Reserve, the views across the expansive lawn, dotted with Acacia trees are fantastic. Situated directly on the wildebeest migration route, game has been known to come right past the door, which you can sit and watch along the veranda that runs the length of the front of the house. Whilst most people spend their time outside in the grounds, inside the living area you find an open plan dining / sitting room complete with an open log fire for the cooler nights, but bush picnics and lunches always feature highly. The area itself is also great for walking safaris and sundowners with a view. Like Acacia & Mara House, there are 3 en-suite rooms and flexibility is the key so the staff here work together with you to ensure a holiday built around your family.
