About The Mara Bush Houses

The Mara Bush Houses consists of two houses, the Mara and Acacia Houses, which are located in the very heart of one the world’s most famous and game rich safari destinations, the Masai Mara. Both houses are ideal for couples, families or small groups wanting private safari accommodation. With a private guide and abundant game on the doorstep guests decide how they would like to spend the day.

Mara House comprises of three spacious en-suite bedrooms while Acacia House comprises of two spacious en- suite bedrooms, with a third attic bedroom ideal for children. All the rooms have bottled water, a hot water bottle, a Maglite torch and a comprehensive information folder with a turn down service. The bathrooms are fully plumbed with hot and cold running water and natural shampoo, soap and body lotion are supplied.

Each of the houses have a large and comfortable sitting and dining area complete with a fireplace, a small den or office with a television, Wi-Fi access and a DVD player. The large verandas overlook the Ol Chorro waterhole frequented by a vast array of wildlife and birdlife. Solar converters offer 24-hour electricity, but please note hairdryers cannot be run.

Early morning wake up calls also offer a guests a choice of beverage with homemade biscuits. Laundry is done on a daily basis and is returned on the same day weather permitting.

The rates include full board accommodation, soft drinks, beer, house wine, non-luxury spirits, conservancy fees, laundry, one vehicle and guide per house, airstrip transfers from Ngerende airstrip, game drives on the Mara North Conservancy and Lemek Conservancy, sundowners or bush breakfasts, visits to the local school, village and trading centre, night game drives, guided walks as well as participating in local community projects.

The rates exclude cellar wines, premium brand champagne and spirits, transfers from other than airstrip transfers mentioned, extra vehicle hire with a guide, all other activities and excursions not mentioned in the included section. The Masai Mara Game Reserve entrance fees are also extra.

A secluded valley in the north of the Mara North Conservancy offers total privacy from the rest of the Mara but with easy access either to the escarpment or the open plains, both within 15 minutes from the front door. The area has long been known for the lush bush forest which attracts a wide array of game including plentiful leopard and easy access to genuine communities who have long been partners in managing this area. The slightly higher altitude brings a cooler, fresher and generally quieter experience than the vast majority of this ecosystem.

The Mara Bush and Acacia Houses offer flexibility, exclusivity and freedom to personally design safari itineraries in the Masai Mara. These unique adventures are complimented by the detailed personal service, home-from home hospitality and unparalleled wildlife expertise. The Mara and Acacia Houses are hosted and guided by some of the very best in Africa to make this a unique experience.
