Our recent stay at Acacia lodge ranks amongst the best of our broad travel experiences.
The house, all yours, overlooks its own spring-fed waterholes, where birds and other wildlife, including Elephants for us, were constant visitors.
House staff and all meals, including a requested traditional Maasai dinner, were top rate. And after showing a keen interest in the local culture we were treated to 2 separate, impromptu, dance performances by 4 of our Maasai "warriors". Unforgettable!
Game viewing exceeded our expectations. Dickson, our young guide, is the best we have encountered. His passion, enthusiasm and broad knowledge, often delivered with a Maasai cultural context, brought our game viewing to life. Our guided walking safari to the Mara's highest point, with breakfast, gazing across the plain far below was both reward and highlight.
We highly recommend Natural Encounters' Acacia House and their guide Dickson.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
