Location

Experience total privacy in your ‘own bush house’ in the heart of the Masai Mara Conservancies. Animals stroll right past the front door of this private sanctuary, and you have total freedom to set the pace of your own safari adventure.

Acacia House sits on the side of a hill in the secluded Ol Chorro Losoit Valley within the beautiful Lemek Hills, far off the typical tourist trail. This private home is within the 30 000 ha Mara North Conservancy. Combine Acacia House’s home comforts with the great wildlife expertise of the local guides and you are guaranteed an exceptional game-viewing experience in the hills, valleys, plains and rivers of the private reserve.

The plains are rich in wildlife, and elephant, zebra and other plains game frequently come to graze on the luscious grass around Acacia House. The Masai Mara is, of course, famous for its big cats and the Mara North Conservancy is no exception.

Acacia House and the next-door Mara House are both exceptionally 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. Acacia House’s large open-air veranda is perfectly positioned to give you a window onto all the action at the busy Ol Chorro waterhole. Leading off from this veranda is an open-plan dining and seating area, complete with an authentic log fire. Beyond are two spacious double en-suite bedrooms and a third attic room, created specifically with children in mind.

To the side of the house, raised above the waterhole, you will find the pool (shared with nearby Mara House) and a barbecue area – the perfect place to dine and relax between safari expeditions and for evening sundowners. The house comes complete with a full complement of experienced staff members, including a chef, wildlife guide and house manager, to ensure a safari experience that delivers the very best the Mara has to offer.

All the Mara Bush Houses offer excellent family safaris. Personal attention, guiding, accommodation and service are focused on creating a superb safari experience for the entire family. Having your own private vehicle and guide is very family friendly: it allows you to set the pace of viewing experiences to suit your own needs and schedule. During bush walks, your Maasai guide will teach the children all about bush skills, including spoor and dung identification, animal tracking, beetles, bugs and birds. And when they aren’t splashing in the pool back at home, you may well find them in the kitchen baking sweet treats with the staff.

Overall a stay at Acacia House is VERY special for those seeking a private safari experience!
