House in the Wild is a private home tucked away on a 1000 acre private estate, Naretoi, on the edge of the Maasai Mara.
It sits on the banks of the Mara River and is surrounded by game within the Enonkishu Conservancy. It has a casual and laid back atmosphere where guests can get away from the beaten track and plan their own itinerary as they like.
The house sleeps 12 people comfortably, with 2 double ensuite rooms on the river, and 2 family cottages. The house comes fully staffed and has an excellent chef and safari guide who can help guests to plan their activities over their stay.
After a game drive, guests can relax by the pool, have a swim or chill out on a swinging bed by the river…The rooms are spacious and clean, comfy beds with cotton sheets and fluffy duvets.
Cuisine – House in the Wild is very proud of the fact that all of the fresh veggies, eggs, milk, cream and baked goods are produced by the farm or the family.
Dining is either under the stars on a table by the campfire or in the dining area by the fire… Bush dinners and brunches can also be prepared and packed picnics for those wanting a full day of game driving.
Activities – Throughout the day on the property there are always interesting activities going on. Guests are welcome to walk around the estate, meet the team, snuggle a newborn calf, milk the cows, help with day-to-day jobs which may include spraying the cattle, beekeeping, tree planting or helping the scouts in the conservation work.
House in the Wild provides a very peaceful environment to relax and unwind, but beyond the beautiful views that stretch across the lawn and over the river are a number of activities to do at your own pace in your own time….
Game drives – Our experienced guide knows the area intimately and there is plenty of game to see within the Enonkishu, Lemek and Ol Chorro Oiruwa conservancies. Big cats, elephants and plains game are commonly seen within a 15 minute drive from the house. The Mara game reserve is about 50km game drive away, worth visiting over the Great Wildebeest Migration for a chance of seeing a river crossing.
Bird walks – There is a huge amount and variety of bird species around the house. Much can be seen on guided walks along the river banks.
Swim – Take a dip in the pool overlooking the river, relax on the sunbeds and soak up the views.
Guided Hill Climb – For the more energetic guests, a guided walk / climb up the Kileleoni Hill is well worth it. Being the highest point in the Greater Mara Ecosytem, the view stretches out as far as the eye can see. Also a great spot for sundowners or bush breakfasts for those who’d rather go up in the car!
Farm activities – At any moment in the day, there is bound to be some kind of interesting activity going on at the farm. An early morning 15 minute walk to the dairy herd to milk a cow for your morning coffee makes it all the more delicious.
School visits – The Emarti Primary and Secondary Schools are 5 km away from the main farm gate, crossing over the river at the Emarti Bridge. With over 700 children to visit guests always get a warm welcome.
Cultural Manyatta trips – An authentic experience where our local maasai guide takes you to his family home.
Rhino Sanctuary – On the edge of the hill, guests can get up close to the tame rhinos in the Rhino Sanctuary.
Fishing – Sit on the banks of the mara river and see who can catch the biggest catfish.
Maasai Singing – Our team of maasai watchmen on the farm are also talented singers and dancers, and always willing to perform their latest traditional hit at sundown on the lawn by the house.
