Our private bush house, Acacia House, sits in the Ol Chorro Losoit valley within the beautiful Lemek hills, far from the tourist trail. This private house is within the 70,000 acre Mara North Conservancy area from where the Mara Bush Houses team have operated their wilderness expeditions for more than twenty years.
The living spaces dominate Acacia House beginning with a large, open-air verandah looking out over the famous Ol Chorro waterhole. This leads into an open-plan dining and seating area complete with log fire for those cooler nights in the bush. Beyond are two spacious double en-suite bedrooms and a third attic room, created specifically for younger guests. As with all our bush homes Acacia House comes with a full complement of well-trained and experienced staff at guests’ disposal to ensure all you have to do is enjoy the space and setting. To the side of the house, raised above the waterhole, there is a pool and a barbecue area which provide a place to relax, dine and socialise between safari expeditions, particularly around sunset. This pool is shared with nearby Mara House
The staffing of this private bush house includes a chef, wildlife guide and house manager to ensure a safari experience which delivers the very best the Mara has to offer. It is an opportunity to explore this wilderness in the company of your personal Masai guide on your own terms.
A fully qualified safari guide and vehicle will be on hand to assist with a wide range of activities which include walking, day or night game drives and visits to local villages, schools and trading centres. Game viewing is done primarily in the conservancies of Mara North, Ol Chorro and Lemek - an area of about 100,000 acres. Trips into the Reserve can be undertaken should guests wish to do so.
Acacia House is situated in a secluded valley amongst the Lemek Hills in the game rich Mara North Conservancy. Daily scheduled flights operate into Ngerende and Mara North Airstrips from Wilson Airport and other areas of Kenya. Ngerende Airstrip is slightly closer, but the airstrip used depends on the airline.
Road transfers from Nairobi or camps within the Greater Mara Area can also be arranged. Driving time from Nairobi can be up to 5 hours and is not recommended.
