Get Involved with Maasai Mara Conservancies by donation or volunteering

Naretoi

The Naretoi estate, set on the banks of the Mara River, used to be an intensive farm (previously called Olerai Mara Farm, owned by the Wood family from 2000-2013) under pivot irrigation.  The founders of Naretoi bought the farm in 2013 and have returned the farm back into its natural state, restoring habitats and enhancing biodiversity.  The Naretoi project is essential for the sustainability of the land surrounding Naretoi, the Enonkishu Conservancy, and is the first project in the area to convert large scale commercial farming back into wildlife grazing habitat. Naretoi will secure the wildlife grazing land in the surrounding areas, as well as working with the community to broaden livelihood opportunities. 

The Naretoi model offers for sale a limited number of 5-acre house sites or ‘footprints’ on the 1000 acres to buyers, who will then build their dream eco home whilst adhering to pre-determined design & material guidelines.  Naretoi homeowners have worked with some of Kenya's finest architects and contractors and created fabulous bush-homes that are ‘safari chic’ and adhere to our design parameters.
