House in the Wild is excited to offer two exquisite private villas; Amani and Jamani House. Both exclusive-use properties on Naretoi, a sought-after location in the Mara, offer guests a private setting where they can experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure with friends and family, enjoying quality time together on safari.
Jamani House is set on the top of a meander of the Mara River, with breathtaking views across an expansive lawn looking out across the Naretoi plains to the Kileleoni Hill, the highest point in the Maasai Mara. The house is an architectural masterpiece featuring a spacious living room with a fireplace, a gathering terrace with an open bar and a large dining room with a fireplace.
It’s tucked away in Naretoi, a private, 1,000-acre estate within the Enonkishu Conservancy on the Maasai Mara National Reserve’s edge. Once an intensive farm, Naretoi is the first project of its kind where land fringing the Mara has reverted back from agriculture to the wilderness. This pioneering ‘rewilding’ scheme has seen rangelands around Jamani return to their natural state, with wildlife subsequently coming back after more than a decade of intensive farming.
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.
