Experience total freedom in your own bush house in the heart of the Maasai Mara Conservancies. Animals stroll right past the front doors of all three of these private sanctuaries, and you have total freedom to set the pace of your own safari escape.
Mara House Experience – Mara House is the most recent addition to Asilia’s collection of private safari houses and was designed to reflect the success of both Topi and Acacia House.
The warm and inviting living areas are at the heart of Mara House and lead onto the outside veranda, which offers magnificent views of the hills and valleys as well as the famous Ol Chorro waterhole. The three spacious en-suite double rooms are beautifully furnished in a traditional East African style with a refreshing contemporary edge.
An experienced and friendly team, consisting of chef, private guide and house manager, is always on hand to ensure your stay is seamless and restful – your only decision will be whether to have lunch on the veranda or under the acacia trees beside the swimming pool (shared with nearby Acacia House).
Meals – Our mouthwatering home-cooked meals use ingredients sourced in Nairobi and from nearby local communities. Flexibility is key in our approach to meals: enjoy breakfast and lunch in camp or take a packed meal with you so that you can extend your game-viewing experience. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements – our camp chefs will be happy to cater for your needs.
Location – You’ll find Mara House far off the tourist track, deep in the 70 000-acre Mara North Conservancy area (where the Mara Bush Houses team has been in operation) for more than 20 years and tucked in the Ol Chorro Losoit Valley between the beautiful Lemek Hills.
This private safari house is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding game-rich wilderness. Plains game, elephant and zebra graze on the nourishing grasses around Mara House, and these are followed by the big cats: look out for lion, leopard and cheetah, as well as the opportunity for excellent predator/prey action.
Activities – Safari is a very personal thing and can be enjoyed in many different ways. At Mara Bush Houses it is our firm belief that any safari expedition should be done on your terms, according to your routine and your time scale.
Game drives – Expert guides take you on twice daily game drives. Watch herds of elephants drink at the waterhole or stay with a pride of lion as the cubs play and fight with one another. Our vehicles are either open game-viewing vehicles, or closed vehicles with big windows, high roofs and hatches that open. All vehicles have power points where you can recharge your devices, and are fitted with fridges to keep your drinks deliciously frosty.
Bush walks – There is little better than exploring and learning about the bush on foot.
Community & cultural visits (at additional cost) – The culture of the natural guardians of this land, the Maasai, is both complex and fascinating. Time spent with the local guides in their home communities is a rich and rewarding experience, often the most memorable moment of a safari here.
