With twisty tree trunks that seem to ‘grow’ from its walls and a cool, wide timber patio that overlooks the Ol Chorno waterhole in the Mara North Conservancy, Acacia House is the perfect combination of form and function. An exclusive-use house that sleeps up to six comfortably, it is ideally suited to families with young children who will enjoy hanging out at the toy-filled ‘schoolroom’ which is two minutes’ away and splashing in the baby pool by day, and watching ‘bush TV’ (or real TV!) by night before crawling into their cosy loft bedroom.
For the grown-ups, there are thrilling game drives, lazy days at the free-form pool, reviving afternoon tea on the verandah and jolly nights around the barbeque under a blanket of African stars. Fly camping to nearby Naboisho Camp can also be arranged for those who want an exhilarating night spent on the open, game-filled plains.
With tasty meals, enthusiastic and knowledgeable Maasai staff, and a laid-back atmosphere that will have you kicking off your shoes the moment you arrive, Acacia House is an idyllic stop-off on your East African journey.
