growing up in Kenya i have been one quite a few safaris, and while a lot of them where quite enjoyable Mara took my breath away. The accommodation was brilliant and the staff more so. I would recommend the Mara to everyone.

We ended our trip at Mara House and it could not have been better! After being on safari for over a week and staying at one lodge and one classic camp, it was such a pleasure walking into this beautiful house. The bedrooms, living room and veranda were so welcoming and comfortable. The staff was warm, friendly, and so helpful...

We spent five days at Topi House in the Maasai Mara in July 2016, and they were five days my family will always treasure. My husband and I had been on safari in Kenya and Tanzania several times before, but this was by far the best experience we've had. Topi house is a beautiful bush home that accommodated our extended...

We spent 8 days in the Acacia House. I have seldom enjoyed time with my family as much as I did here. The site is perhaps a little far from the game reserve action but this did little to dim our view of this wonderful and special place. The staff are - without doubt - of the nicest people you...

Our stay at the Mara and Acacia houses offered the best safari experience in our travels to Kenya. Even the animals co-operated. We saw a bounty of lions, elephants, cheetah and even the elusive leopard. But what made this time most memorable was the staff and guides of the Mara Bush Houses. Special activities provided included a bush run for...

This place has it all. The setting of the Camp in the hills, the rooms, the views are all excellent. The gallery gives a true representation of the place. With that said, the part of our four day stay that stands out most is the people of Mara House. From the very beginning to the end of our stay the...

I recently stayed for 6 nights at the Topi House with my fiancé and his family. The house itself is stunning overlooking the plains of the conservancy with well appointed bedrooms, and a lovely lounge. Fred Ronko was both our guide and host. He is an exceptional guide, having worked from Topi House for 18 years, and a great host,...

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
