What a special treat Mara House was. We stayed here with our girls aged 15 and 14 and for the 3 days we were there we felt like royalty. The house is beautiful, overlooking a waterhole and surrounded by hills and trees. The route up to the house is an experience in itself but we loved the fact it seemed... More

The Asilia Mara Bush house was our home away from home. We stayed 2 nights and wanted to stay longer. The 3br house for our family of 4 was spacious and very comfortable. The staff is amazing and provide the most excellent service. Dickson and Duncan were excellent hosts. The other staff were exceptional as well. The chef prepared food... More

This is a great place to stay with family or friends who want to experience the best Masai Mara has to offer! I did a lot of research before our first trip to Masai Mara in 2010, and Acacia House was perfect for us. So when friends suggested a second trip to Masai Mara, we were delighted to be able... More

I stayed at the Acacia House four years ago with friends and had such a wonderful time that I had to do the trip again and bring my husband to see it. Our guide was Salaash, who I would highly recommend. We requested him when we came back the second time. He is very knowledgable and just a plain fun... More

Excellent accomodation in this house. The house is very beautiful, just few minutes from Masai Mara Park, totally immersed in beautiful nature. The people helping us was so kind , available and efficient.......An excellent stay, lots of animals, lions, elephants.... without limits. Drinks and breakfast in the bush. A dream.....difficult to go back to the " civil word "

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

We spent 5 nights at Acacia House and it quickly felt like our home away from home ... except with wonderful staff & amazing wildlife! 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...
