Our visit to the Mara bush houses was amazing. Our guide Salaash was very knowledgable, accommodating and had a great sense of humor. He knew where to go to see the animals in the park. The meals were great and the bush houses were very comfortable and well furnished. We will definitely go back!

The property has 2 houses on it so a larger group can enjoy their time all together. Mara House where I stayed had 3 ensuite bedrooms, a large lounge with a fireplace, dining... More

I traveled with friends for my birthday weekend. We stayed in the Mara Bush House which was stunning and overlooking our own private waterhole. Asilia has a reputation of offering some of the most luxurious safari accommodations in the region and the house experience did not disappoint. We had all the amenities of any 5* luxury tented camp / lodge.... More

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
