What we love about the Mara Bush Houses

It's an exclusive experience - Both houses come with a friendly team dedicated to making your stay the best it can be, including a chef, house manager, and your own private guide. You even have your own private vehicle, so you decide when you want to go on safari and for how long.

Tailored to you - Both of the houses are exclusive-use properties, and you’re free to design your own itinerary for each day you spend here. Stay out all day on safari with expert guides or spend the afternoon relaxing by the pool with a G&T - it's all up to you.

It's a great base for adventure -  The houses are within a short driving distance to the Masai Mara National Reserve, home of the Great Migration herds at certain times of the year.

Things to do at Mara and Acacia House

There is an array of activities to enjoy at Mara and Acacia House with your private team of guides and experts. Here are a few of our favourites: 

Game Drives - The guides can take you on safari either in the morning or late afternoon - but you're welcome to stay out all day with a freshly made packed lunch. Because you have a private vehicle, you can really take your time at the reserves.

Night Drives - Due to being in a private conservancy, the rules are more flexible, meaning you can drive out after dark. Using a spotlight to try and find the more nocturnal animals living at the parks.

Nature Walks - Explore the savannah on foot with an expert guide and see all the small things that you can't whilst in a vehicle.

The Lemek Hills near the Mara Bush Houses are known as an important haven for wild dogs. Avid birdwatchers should also keep an eye out for any of the 500 species recorded flying around the Mara.  

When to travel

The Mara offers amazing experiences year-round. July to October is the peak season and the time for the Great Migration. 

July and August are particularly busy so we suggest avoiding these months for a better experience without a lot of tourists.

December to June is the Green Season, when there are far fewer people at the Mara, making this a prime time to visit.
