What a wonderful home. If you love simplicity and a touch of rustic this is the home to be. The mara house was spacious and airy. The view from the verandah overlooking the waterhole was fantastic. Service was superb and food was excellent. Soaking in the luxurious bath tubs after the game drives is a must. 3 days nights is... More

I used to like the Mara – until I went to Asilia’s Mara Bush House’s. Now I absolutely love the Mara and cannot wait to go back. The only downside was that we were there for only two nights, a three night stay should be the minimum! I could have easily stayed for a week. We stayed in the Mara... More

Located on the Lemek Hills making it a lot more private than staying in the main Mara park. The house is really ideal and beautifully designed and not to mention totaly eco. This was our first time staying at a house in the Mara, making it a special and personalized, intimate experience, especially when you are with a group of... More

What a wonderful home for 5 days. Comfortable and beautifully furnished, so much space both inside and out. The view from the verandah overlooking the waterhole was fantastic. The families of warthogs that came to the water kept us amused for hours!! We also saw giraffe,buffalo,Impala,baboons,monkeys,various birds etc. coming to visit the waterhole. We were fed with an abundance of... More
