Fully catered and staffed private houses for a holiday 100 percent on your terms. Enjoy total flexibility on timings and activities for children and adults at Mara Bush Houses before heading off to Zanzibar for child-friendly activities at Matemwe Beach House and a private swimming pool.
This is the ultimate East African adventure for any family – combining the best of the Masai Mara’s wilderness areas and ending your journey on the beautiful, tropical island of Zanzibar. We combine family-friendly accommodation, flexibility on activities and mealtimes to suit all ages, and hosts and guides who love nothing more than creating magical moments for children and grown-ups alike.
Start your journey at the House of Waine in Nairobi, before visiting the Masai Mara and spending a few days on safari at one of our fully catered private Mara Bush Houses. You’ll be treated to private game viewing vehicles and our expert guides Fred, Saalash and Dickson are all family men who have an infinite knowledge of the plains. Let them teach your children the magic of the African bush with our specially adapted kids safari activities and fascinate them with bush facts, traditional games, local folklore and stories of life in the wild.
On the island of Zanzibar, you and your family will have the private Matemwe Beach House all to yourself. Laze in the pool, enjoy fresh seafood meals daily and explore the island’s beautiful coastline at a pace that suits your family. With the added benefit of snorkelling, kayaking and boating excursions being only a stone’s throw away, even the most energetic of children — and parents! — will be entertained during your stay with us.
