The luxury of a Masai Mara bush home

The Masai Mara is sadly known for the over crowding which happens in the Mara Reserve during July and August. Of course if you know the right person to ask they will be able to point you in the direction of more luxurious options in the private conservancies around the Masai Mara which offer exclusive game viewing. These conservancies are run by professionals, who often have better anti-poaching measures, better guides and better policies when it comes to preserving the area, and the wildlife. There are many options in these conservancies but none so appealing for a family or group of friends as the Mara Bush Homes. Acacia and Mara House are situated in the exclusive Mara North Conservancy, which is populated by just a few luxury camps and lots of wildlife. Mara Bush Homes Both are exceptionally economical compared to other options of a similar level, but also offer a privacy and exclusivity, which many people crave when on holiday with friends or family. What more could one want when on safari in Africa than a private home from home, with a private guide, private chef and private staff. Mara Bush Homes It really is very spoiling and makes coming home even harder. Both houses are luxurious and relaxing and offer everything from day and night game drives, bush walks and bush breakfasts and sundowners. Of course another major benefit to being outside the Reserve itself is that you are able to do things such as walk and take night drives, all things which are not possible in government run areas. Mara Bush Homes The private bush home allows us to escape reality and imagine we have our own little piece of Africa. The feeling is sensational and both houses employ excellent guides and chefs so your experience is a truly luxurious one. The houses are not fenced and there is often wildlife around in the day and at night – you can watch the natural world go on around you from the comfort of your homely living room. A fantastic combination for the Masai Mara can be a luxury tented camp, followed by a few days in a private house such as these.

  1. Good to know about these places, and they are magical, my husband proposed on holiday at Kichwa Tembo 20 years ago! But if people can’t afford to get to the Mara, then the Nairobi national park and the tented camp there is a good option.

    Thanks, Monica from Dubai.

  2. Thanks for such a lovely article, totally love Kenya and it’s great to promote it at every opportunity.

    I’ve actually lived in the Aberdare National Park for 4 months and it was a magical time, and whilst not the biggest or most famous park in Kenya, was such a lovely introduction to the warmth of the people, the country, the continent and most of all – the animals :-)

    Lodges like the one in the post are such a tremendous way to experience the parks, and balance excitement, beauty, relaxation and nature in a superb way.

    I hope it helps more people discover this amazing and wonderful country,


  3. Despite the crowds no place is as magical as the Mara when it comes to game drives and wildlife viewing. I would go back over and over again
