The Masai Mara is one of the world’s unrivalled wildernesses. Scene of the Wildebeest Migration and home to a panoply of bird and mammal species, it is the quintessence of untrammelled Africa and the pinnacle of classic safari country.

Located in the uncrowded Mara North Conservancy, Mara Bush House offers a private safari home retreat overlooking a game rich waterhole for travellers who enjoy private, comfort and luxury.

Ideal for families or groups of friends, this 3-bedroom home comes fully staffed with a wildlife guide, a personal chef and a household manager to ensure your stay is as seamless as it is tranquil. Here you can enjoy day and night game drives with your Maasai guide, as well as safari walks in the wilderness before returning to the warm embrace of your secluded sanctuary.

With an experienced team of staff at your disposal, Mara Bush House allows you to experience and enjoy the wilds of Mara North at entirely your own pace: as you like it, when you like it.

A lovely family home-from-home stay in your own private piece of Africa; I'd recommend you end here with good quality family or friend time, good food and no schedules after your safari. For a bigger group why not take the sister property Acacia Mara House too!

Mara House

Each of the three bedrooms – including one in the attic suitable for children or teenagers - is elegantly and stylishly furnished with locally sourced materials and bright Maasai fabrics. The en suite bathrooms are spacious and attractive, featuring signature amenities, showers and baths.


Mara Bush House oozes an old-world charm and sophistication, where a large verandah is the focal gathering point from which to observe the game at the popular waterhole below. A spacious interior blends dining and living areas that are cosy and inviting without feeling cluttered; exposed wooden beams and authentic tree trunks sunk into the walls punctuate the space. A log-burning fireplace in the lounge provides an ideal spot to curl up with a book and a nightcap on cooler evenings. Set back from the house, a large swimming pool is shared with nearby Acacia House, and provides a wonderful midday retreat for a refreshing dip and an alfresco meal.


A team of experienced chefs are on hand to cater for your every need, providing wholesome and healthy fare featuring the freshest ingredients. Rise in the morning to the aroma of freshly baked bread and newly brewed Kenyan coffee wafting from the kitchen, indulge your senses in fresh tropical fruits and juices, and enjoy a delightful picnic lunch of carefully prepared delicacies as you spend the day on safari. Evenings are given over to relaxation, indulgence and enjoyment as a selection of scrumptious dishes emerge from the kitchen to accompany a selection of notable wines from the cellar.
