Introducing Wild Villas…
Scattered across the Naretoi Sanctuary in the Enonkishu Conservancy, on the northern edge of the Mara ecostystem, wild Villas enable guests to experience world-class game drives and first-class bush experiences- from the bush breakfasts to sundowners with a rare level of privacy. It’s not unusual to see big cats and big game, with the rhino sanctuary within the Conservancy enabling many guests to tick off the Big 5 during a visit.
There are currently three Wild Villas. Each one is individually designed but equally fabulous. Each one is hired at a rate that includes delicious meals, free-flowing drinks, private game drives, guided walks and bike rides, community visits and plenty of extras, from laundry services to media rooms. It’s the height of exclusivity, at a price comparable with a good -quality safari lodge. This perfectly formed collection allows you to safari on your own terms, in equisite style.
Amani sleeps upto 14 and is a cluster of super-luxe buildings, each gorgeously styled, looking out on the bush. When you’re not spotting game, you can dip in the cool pool or hot tub, play on the pickle ball court or billiards, or work out at the fully equipped gym.
Jamani sleeps up to 12 and is perched by a meander of the Mara River, gazing across the Naretoi plains, Jamani is a masterpiece of free-flowing spaces and sumptuous rooms that open to the great outdoors. Gaze out from your bed or the alfresco bar or sip sundowners on the library’s rooftop terrace.
Olmarei sleeps upto 10 and is your own private riverside ranch house, overlooking a lagoon where hippos wallow. As well as the main building, with its living room, dining area, piano and outdoor fireside seating, there are separate guest cottages, all with jaw-dropping views to the Mara’s highest hills, plus a. herb garden and swimming pool.
There are plans to add a handful of other unique properties to the collection over the coming months, the Wild Villas flagship property in early 2024 will also be launched which is incredible.
Wild Villas is the perfect option for multi-generational family trave or group of friends. The homes all have cool communal spaces so you can fully embrace time together in property as well as on game drives- whether it’s in the cosy lounge, round the fire pit, eating on the terrace or propping up the well-stocked bar. There are also very separate sleeping and living areas, so everyone can grab alone time when required.

There are options to suit all budgets, from self-catered to ultimate luxury, and the team at House in the Wild provide the guest experience, all activities and service. Each house comes with a private safari car with an experienced guide. All guests staying pay a conservancy fee that supports Wild Villas purpose; protecting wildlife habitats alongside improving the lives of the people living there.
