House in the Wild is a unique family owned seven-room luxury boutique eco-lodge on the banks of the Mara River on the Naretoi Sanctuary in the Enonkishu Conservancy. At the heart of the business is a model of regenerative eco-tourism, and a commitment to restoring wildlife habitats and improving the lives of the people living in the area. The estate is the first project of its kind where the land on the edge of the Mara has changed from farming back to nature. Guests experience exclusive and fabulous game viewing in Enonkishu, Lemek and Ol Chorro Oiruwa Conservancies – a combined 36,000 acres, as well as having the opportunity to get involved with community and conservation initiatives supported by the lodge.

Guests have their own safari guide who can help plan their activities over their stay with complete flexibility. Head out on game drives into the award winning Enonkishu Conservancy to see its varied and dense game, where animals migrate freely in between the neighbouring conservancies. The wildlife viewing is excellent, and the House in the Wild experience something very special.

Positive Impact

Enonkishu Conservancy

House in the Wild was involved in the establishment of the 6000-acre community-based conservation initiative, Enonkishu Conservancy. As a result of collaborative efforts between Enonkishu landowners, previously over-farmed land has been restored and now wildlife including lions, leopards, wild dogs, honey badgers and elephants all migrate freely in and out of the conservancy.

Assisting the local community

The property owns and manages the Mara Beef farm, which helps local landowners to access livestock markets. Understanding the need to build the economic resilience of the local community, a large focus of the Conservancy’s work is diversifying income streams to lessen dependence on tourism. The Mara Training Centre, partly funded by concessions from House in the Wild guests, trains local pastoralists in regenerative grazing and sustainable land management. They have also built two local schools, which emphasise the importance of conservation. A large majority of employees are from a 5km radius and their unrivaled local knowledge means that experiences can be tailor-made to suit everyone’s needs. About 80% of produce is sourced locally and where there is appetite, guests are encouraged to meet the local community, visit the school and get involved in conservation efforts
