Topi House sits between Olare Orok Conservancy and the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The site has been carefully selected to maximise the views through the small thorn tree forest, in which the house sits, over the national park boundary and into the reserve beyond. The house lies just 45 minutes, as part of a game drive, from Ol Kiombo airstrip. From this coveted spot you get unrivalled access to the eastern side of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve.
This is designed to be your very own private bush home in the middle of Africa's greatest eco system. Like Acacia & Mara Houses it is not hosted but it comes with a full complement of well-trained and experienced staff at guests' disposal including a chef, professional safari guide and house manager to ensure a seamlessly run and personal safari experience. The area, with its rolling hills, is also ideal for bush picnics and sundowners with a view. The property is positioned directly on the wildebeest migration route and has been known to experience huge volumes of game right up to the front door. The house consists of three well sized en-suite bedrooms which are linked by a large verandah running along the front. At the far end lies the living area, which is made up of an open plan sitting/dining room complete with an open log fire. Guests can also sit around a camp fire near the house, under the stars. Your team will prepare all meals to the usual high standard and will cater for bush picnics or lunches out on the lawn under the shade of the acacia trees.
