Throughout the day on the property there are always interesting activities going on. Guests are welcome to walk around the estate, meet the team, snuggle a newborn calf, milk the cows, help with day-to-day jobs which may include spraying the cattle, beekeeping, tree planting or helping the scouts in the conservation work. There is also always a willing team eager to play football and guests are welcome to mix in on the farm pitch. Guests are free to walk or jog around the estate, in the knowledge that they are safe from game within the farm fence.
Game drives - Our experienced guide knows the area intimately and there is plenty of game to see within the Enonkishu, Lemek and Ol Chorro Oiruwa conservancies. Big cats, elephants and plains game are commonly seen within a 15 minute drive from the house. The Mara game reserve is about 50km game drive away, worth visiting over the Great Wildebeest Migration for a chance of seeing a river crossing.
Bird walks - There is a huge amount and variety of bird species around the house. Much can be seen on guided walks along the river banks.
Swim - Take a dip in the pool overlooking the river, relax on the sunbeds and soak up the views.
Guided Hill Climb - For the more energetic guests, a guided walk / climb up the Kileleoni Hill is well worth it. Being the highest point in the Greater Mara Ecosytem, the view stretches out as far as the eye can see. Also a great spot for sundowners or bush breakfasts for those who’d rather go up in the car!
Holistic Management - Learn about how wildlife and livestock can thrive when in a holistic management system. Learn about our innovative conservation efforts and how farmland has been restored to its natural state through our rewilding program.
School visits - The Emarti Primary and Secondary Schools are 5 km away from the main farm gate, crossing over the river at the Emarti Bridge. With over 700 children to visit guests always get a warm welcome.
Cultural Manyatta trips - An authentic experience where our local maasai guide takes you to his family home.
Rhino Sanctuary - On the edge of the hill, guests can get up close to the tame rhinos in the Rhino Sanctuary.
Go Fish - Sit on the banks of the mara river and see who can catch the biggest catfish.
Maasai Singing - Our team of maasai watchmen on the farm are also talented singers and dancers, and always willing to perform their latest traditional hit at sundown on the lawn by the house.
