Acacia House

Acacia House

Escape to your very own private bush home in one of Kenya’s beautiful valleys within the Mara North Conservancy. The conservancy’s 70,000 acres are far from normal tourist traffic and offer a welcome retreat to relax, experience exceptional wildlife, and explore Africa’s untamed wilderness from beautiful Acacia House.

A large, open veranda offers expansive views of the busy Ol Chorro waterhole below. Inside, an airy floor plan allows generous space for a dining room, living area, and den/office. Two large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a third attic room for younger guests give ample space for everyone. A cozy fireplace, relaxing pool (shared with nearby Mara House), and outdoor barbeque provide places to enjoy time together between safari expeditions.

Well-trained, professional staff members care for residents of Acacia House. A private chef prepares and serves guests memorable meals described as “uncomplicated but wonderfully imaginative meals which utilize skillful blends of flavors from the huge variety of exciting produce found in Kenya.”

Several experienced Maasai wildlife guides are part of the staff and confidently lead guests into the bush in 4 x 4 vehicles, introducing them to the best the area has to offer. Game drives take place in the morning and evening in order to see the greatest diversity of wildlife. Many predator species including leopard, lion, striped and spotted hyena, cheetah, and wild dog inhabit the area. Other wildlife often seen by guests are hippo, zebra, buffalo, impala, elephant, giraffe, gazelle, and a great variety of birdlife. Game walks allow for a more intimate examination of creatures both large and small in their natural habitats.

Other optional extras provide incredible opportunities to view wildlife through hot air balloon rides, visits to the rhino sanctuary, visits to the Mara Game Reserve, and visits to local villages, schools, and trading centers. Guest participation in community projects such as computer training for local villagers in the nearby Trust Classroom is encouraged and always appreciated.
