Our travel agent recommended that we stop half way through our African Safari for several days to relax, unwind and enjoy Africa. What a brilliant suggestion! And this is an ideal place to do it at. 5 star service - 4 staff looking after our family - amazing cooking - I even asked for recipes - the decor /architecture of... More

We stayed at Mara Bush House for 3 night with our 3 year old girl and our friends with 2 small children. We were a bit anxious to take our daughter to East Africa on a safari but we had the most amazing time. The house was stunning with a waterhole in front of the house and a nice big... More

Our Mara Bush House experience was amazing, the hosts during our stay included Fred, Duncan, Eleanor and Dickson, our Safari Guide. The accommodation, food, service and Safari could not have been better. This was our first Safari, it won't be our last! We felt like family every day, all day! This holiday was truly one that we will never forget,... More

The accommodation was simply superb, the food exceptional and the staff made us feel like kings & queens. Salaash was simply the most fantastic guide - we learned so much, saw so much wildlife and...

We had a great six night stay at Asilia's Topi House (third time for us) this February 2014.. The staff is superb. Many thanks to the world's greatest guide Salaash and the staff - Nabaala, Leonard and James for a perfect visit. Food, service and guiding were great and the house is wonderful.

5 stars. We are an adoptive family with 3 children from Kenya & Ethiopia who lived/worked in Kenya for a year back in 2000. This was the highlight of our 3 week adventure. The staff/ accommodations / food/ location was beyond our expectations. Fred (our guide), along with our house staff made us feel like family....that is...royal family. Elephants came... More

Topi House is a wonderful place to stay. The best view you could imagine on a safari holiday from the front porch - and lunch is served in the gardens overviewing the plains of the Mara and the escarpment, under the shade of an acacia tree. Could not ask for anywhere more "Out of Africa"! Very friendly staff. Expert guides,... More

The Masai Mara is always a wonderful experience, and I must have spent at least two years of my life there. However, Topi House offers something completely unique; a private home right in the middle of the best part of the Mara. At Topi House, you and your friends/ family can enjoy the privacy of your own home, completely controlling... More
