Mara Bush Houses was the best!! Our final stop on a 14 day journey through Kenya and Tanzania. The houses we stayed in were beautiful. The staff was excellent! All were more than kind and thoughtful throughout our stay. The final night was a special surprise dinner atop a mountain at sunset, to celebrate the life of my husband, Greg,...

We had an amazing time and absolutely we loved watching the animals coming to the water hole in the garden. 30 elefantes at one point! The staff was fantastic and so friendly and the food was excellent.

We visited the Mara Bush Houses for a special Family Birthday and took over both Acacia House and Mara House. We had a number of special diets in our group which can make things a little tricky but the guys at Asilia Africa did not disappoint. The menus were planned to perfection and the Chefs execution was phenomenal. The houses...

My family stayed here in December and loved every minute of our time at the Mara Bush House.

I can't imagine a more idyllic place to experience first hand the delights that Africa, and imparticularly the Masai Mara itself has to offer. Asilia and the Mara Bush Houses went above and beyond our expectations of what we thought a safari would be ensuring that we were left with life-long memories. Lovely, heart-warming people delivering great service, fantastic food...

Our group of 10 took up the entire Mara and Acacia bush houses so we had the lodge to ourselves. The accommodations themselves were very spacious, warm, inviting and intimate - we didn't feel like we were in a hotel. The watering hole in the back of the houses attracted amazing animals (baboons, zebra, wildebeasts, worthogs, birds, mongoose, gazelles, etc.)...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience total freedom in your own bush house in the heart of the Maasai Mara conservancies. Animals stroll right past the front doors of all three of these private sanctuaries, and you have total freedom to set the pace of your own safari escape. Mara, Acacia and Topi houses are all seriously 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. Even better, you have the freedom to personally design your own itinerary. With detailed personal service, home-from-home hospitality and unequalled wildlife expertise, a safari at Mara Bush Houses is a unique and exclusive adventure. ... more   less
