House in The Wild
House in the Wild is a private family – owned boutique lodge, in a unique location perched on the banks of the Mara River, tucked away on Naretoi, a 1000-acre private estate within the Enonkishu Conservancy on the edge of the Maasai Mara.
On what was once an intensive farm, Naretoi is the first project of its kind where the land on the edge of the Mara has changed from farming back to nature. This “rewilding” project has seen the rangelands around the House in the Wild return to their natural state, with wildlife returning to the area after over a decade of intensive farming.
The lodge is hosted by an excellent team of local staff and overseen by the Wood family that live a 5-minute drive away. Guests can enjoy accompanied bush walks, game drives, sundowners, bush meals and farm visits. House in the Wild is a welcome retreat for a few days respite while still being “on safari”.
The house was originally a family getaway on the Wood’s commercial farm but has been restored and lovingly put together by the family and their team.
The House in the Wild is a private 12-14 bed lodge, and consists of a main lounge and dining area, a swimming pool with a thatch gazebo and bar and four cottages. The mess area offers the warmth and rustic charm of a family lodge, with all the home comforts you could ask for.
Guests can get away from the beaten track and experience the ultimate exclusive and private safari alongside a meaningful life changing journey, learning about the inspiring stories of how communities build their livelihoods in harmony with the wildlife of the Enonkishu Conservancy.
