Topi House, Olare Motorogi Conservancy
Although Topi House is no longer on offer, guests have plenty of great options in the same Greater Mara Region. Groups or families who want their own space will enjoy Mara House or Acacia House, our two Mara Bush Houses in the same style of Topi House (but which have the added benefit of a swimming pool). Also nearby are our tented camps Encounter Mara and Naboisho Camp in the Naboisho Conservancy, and Rekero Camp in the Masai Mara National Reserve.
Those interested in Topi House may still read on, since the experience of this Mara Bush House is shared at our other camps in the area, such as the warm hospitality of our staff and the exceptional wildlife viewing of the Greater Mara region.
In a small thorn tree forest in the private Olare Motorogi Conservancy, Topi House is right on the border of the Masai Mara National Reserve. An exclusive-use, three-bedroom property, Topi House is perfect for groups or families who want their own space.
A full team, including a chef and house manager, will take care of everything around the house, while your own private guide and vehicle mean you can decide on your schedule.
Spend an afternoon relaxing on the veranda watching the Great Migration wildebeest herds that pass right by the house each year, with a cold G&T or a coffee. To witness the dramatic river crossings that occur between July and November, drive into the neighbouring Masai Mara National Reserve. At other times of the year, you can watch cheetah hunting, find lion on a kill, learn about tracking animals on a nature walk, or spend the morning soaring across the Mara plains in a hot-air balloon.

Topi House was our 3rd and final stay during 8 night, 9 day safari experience in Kenya. It was as exciting and fun filled as our stays at Lewa House and Naboisho. Fred the manager / guide, Johnson and Mark the chef were outstanding hosts.
We saw lions, cheetahs, leopards, crocodiles, hippos, gazelles, topis, edlund, warthogs and many other animals and host of newborns! Impossible for me to list all the African birds we saw everyday! Fred our Masai guide has amazing knowledge of the animals, birds and the Masai culture.
Mark the chef cooks like a Michelin Chef and has no boundaries so we ate like kings and queens!
We will be back! - Pizzacarrier
We spent 5 days at Topi House on the Mara. We saw just about everything including lion/hyena hunts, magnificent lone bull elephants and 5000 wildebeest and zebra crossing the Mara river.
We saw cheetah mother with 6 cubs we saw spitting cobra and both male and female leopard and so much more.
This spectacular haul of game viewing was all down to our Masai guide Fred Ronko. With over 25 years experience this man kept us totally engaged. I would recommend that you ask for him when you book the house. His team are equally terrific from Johnson the head butler to Mark the chef. I really cannot praise them enough.
Feel free to message me for any further feedback but Topi House is a true testimony to the fact that you get what you pay for. - Martin A
A group of 6 of us stayed at Topi House and it was an amazing experience. The staff could not have done more to make our stay any better. From the moment we landed at the airstrip Martin was a friendly, informative and energetic presence on our tours and had amazing knowledge of the Mara and all the animals. The staff at the house provided a great service with fantastic food and hospitality. The house itself far exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend the business for anyone looking for a safari of a lifetime - alexEv92
