House In the Wild – Narok, Kenya

Dallas and I stayed at awesome accommodation during our stay in Kenya.  Located some two hour drive from Narok proper, House in the Wild offers private and serene accommodation with first class service and meals.  Our small group of six had the whole place to ourselves (it was booked that way), though it can accommodate up to 12, and within hours, we were like family – arriving from Denmark, Australia, and the United States.  Safari tours can be easily booked through this venue with Moses and Boston as premium guides and story tellers.  Our hosts, Tarquin and Lippa Wood came in for a couple visits to make sure our stay was perfect.

House in the Wild is located on Naretoi, the 1000 acre private estate within the Enonkishu Conservancy wildlife sanctuary on the edge of the Maasai Mara.  All the houses are situated with gorgeous views of the Mara River from the porch or just a few steps away.

Quasi-glamping.  Absolutely stunning and luxurious accommodation with daily cleaning service.
