House in the Wild, Northern Masai Mara

Posted on Posted in lodges, Masai Mara

House in the Wild is a private home tucked away on a 1,000 acre private estate, Naretoi, on the edge of the Maasai Mara. It sits on the banks of the Mara River and is surrounded by game within the Enonkishu Conservancy. It has a casual and laid back atmosphere where guests can get away from the beaten track and plan their own itinerary as they like. The house sleeps 12 people comfortably, with 2 double ensuite rooms on the river, and 2 family cottages. The house comes fully staffed and has an excellent chef and safari guide who can help guests to plan their activities over their stay.

Why do We Love House in the Wild?

We LOVE House in the Wild because it is 100% a family lodge. It has three (recently tarted up) family houses/tents/rooms, it’s on the Mara river and it’s simply the best place to stay with kids who like to splash around in a swimming pool! The staff are incredible and there is loads for kids to do when you’re there… as well as amazing game drives and walks (with the world’s best picnics!!!); why not visit the dairy farm, the local school or the local Manyatta; try your hand at beading and drawing; there’s even a tennis court nearby!

House in the Wild Facts:

The property is located North West of the Maasai Mara Reserve, within the Enonkishu Conservancy bordering Lemek, and Ol Chorro conservancies.

The main house and cottages are set on beautiful grounds, on the banks of the Mara River, within a 1000 acre private estate Naretoi, within the Enonkishu conservancy. Whilst being on the edge of the best game viewing area, the immediate area surrounding “House in the Wild” is on a working farm, and it is fenced therefore safe for walking, running, horse riding, bicycle riding, offering guests to have a firsthand experience of what living on a traditional Kenyan Farm is like. Great for kids, there are horses to ride, cows to milk, a farm school to visit.
