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 your own schedule and having everything provided. The meals are beyond excellent, with drinks not an extra, served when you request. The setting is spectacular, with the house on a ridge over looking the plains north of Rhino Ridge and wildlife always visible from the acacia treed 'garden'. It's not uncommon for lions and elephant to stroll by and all sorts feeds on the lawn at night! The other very special aspect of Topi House is the guiding. Topi House provides one or two ( depending on the size of your group) first class landcruisers with I believe the top guides in the Mara. The guide team is built from the Masai team that originally formed the famous Rekero camp and they have years and years of experience. I've made many wildlife films in the Mara and know top guides because they can not only find animals but predict what is going to happen next. The Topi House guides are true masters at this! And they are all great fun! Topi House is an incredible experience, and I've been there four times. It is impossible for you to be disappointed there!
