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

The house overlooks a watering hole which was wonderful to just sit on the veranda and watch the animals. The staff are so attentive and efficient , a big thank you... More

I never would have expected that renting a house - with a full staff! - would be better than staying at a lodge, but with three kids ages 6-11, the Mara Houses were a seriously fantastic experience. Salaash was our incredible guide, and along with showing the kids (and us) the Maasai ways, he kept everyone entertained with outrageous tricks... More

Chris and I lived in Kenya when we were 8-12 years old in the 70s so we are not novices at the game viewing experience and East Africa. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by every element of... More

Three work colleagues and I stayed at Mara and Acacia Bush Houses for a two night weekend break at the beginning of November. What a truly wonderful experience we had. Both houses are luxuriously appointed and are set in what is a perfect location within feet of a watering hole. Our late morning arrival was met with a wide variety... More

On arriving at the lodges after a long journey we were all totally blown away by the facilities and the views especially the animals around the watering hole just yards away from the terrace. The accomadation was superb with everything you could desire in Kensington London let alone Kenya. The team are made up of some of the kindest and... More

Mara bush house was such a special experience! A stunning location: beautiful house overlooking a waterhole and surrounded by animals, trees and hills… The house staff are the kindest, loveliest people on earth. The food was great, 3-course meals for lunch and diner, the picknicks out in the bush were excellent as well. Our guide, Martin, was the best!! Every... More
