A member of The Long Run

House in the Wild is a private family – owned boutique lodge, in a unique location perched on the banks of the Mara River, tucked away on Naretoi, a 1000-acre private estate within the Enonkishu Conservancy on the edge of the Maasai Mara. On what was once an intensive farm, Naretoi is the first project of its kind where the land on the edge of the Mara has changed from farming back to nature.  This “rewilding” project has seen the rangelands around the House in the Wild return to their natural state, with wildlife returning to the area after over a decade of intensive farming.

Since 2012, the land surrounding the House in the Wild Collection, once intensively farmed, has been devoted to a pioneering rewilding project. Using grazing animals as the drivers of habitat creation, and with the restoration of dynamic, natural water courses, the project has seen extraordinary increases in wildlife.
