Travelers' Choice
Experience total freedom in your own bush house in the heart of the Maasai Mara conservancies. Animals stroll right past the front doors of all three of these private sanctuaries, and you have total freedom to set the pace of your own safari escape. Mara, Acacia and Topi houses are all seriously comfortable – although there is no resident host, a full complement of staff takes care of your every need. Each house accommodates six people in three double rooms, so they are ideal for couples, families and groups. Even better, you have the freedom to personally design your own itinerary. With detailed personal service, home-from-home hospitality and unequalled wildlife expertise, a safari at Mara Bush Houses is a unique and exclusive adventure.

It was a beautiful place. There was a pool there, but we didn't have time to go swimming before dark and it was too cool to swim after dark. The food and housing was wonderful They had a fire for us every evening at the outside bar.

Location was amazing, outstanding service where every detail was taken care of, friendly and profesional staff, wonderful chef and the best guide ever (Fred!). It was beautiful, highly recommend it if anybody is planning to visit Masai Mara.

Topi House was our 3rd and final stay during 8 night, 9 day safari experience in Kenya. It was as exciting and fun filled as our stays at Lewa House and Naboisho. Fred the manager / guide, Johnson and Mark the chef were outstanding hosts. We saw lions, cheetahs, leopards, crocodiles, hippos, gazelles, topis, edlund, warthogs and many other animals and host of newborns! Impossible for me to list all the African birds we saw everyday! Fred our Masai guide has amazing knowledge of the animals, birds and the Masai culture. Mark the chef cooks like a Michelin Chef and has no boundaries so we ate like kings and queens! We will be back!

We have just spent 4 nights staying in Acacia House and have had the most amazing time. We have two girls aged 14 and 9 and they loved every minute. We made the most of every opportunity offered to us whilst there so we were up and ready for early morning safaris, as well as a whole day safari, we visited a local school and interacted with the staff and children, spent time at a local market to get a feel for life in the Masai Mara and even ate meals in the middle of the Mara! Our guide, Sammy, was absolutely superb. His knowledge of the area and animal behaviour made our time extra special. We saw some incredible sights and experienced animals closer than I thought would ever be possible in the wild. Watching a lion stride towards the open sided vehicle until about a metre away and then turning away was just awesome! Every day going out there was a feeling of anticipation and excitement at what we would see... and we were never disappointed! The staff at Acacia House were all fantastic ... every time we returned from a trip out we were greeted by our hosts, Leonard and Joshua, with hot or cold flannels and a refreshing drink. The same hosts were with us for the duration of our stay so got to know us and what we liked (especially how we liked our G&T!) The meals were all delicious and a great selection ... especially with children! Sammy also ate with us which we loved. Overall it was the most incredible few days and experiences we will never forget! Thankyou!
