Maasai Mara

The Wild Hub


Community and conservation

The Wild Hub is tucked away on a meander of the Mara River in the Enonkishu Conservancy on what was once a livestock ranch.

The former farm became the heart of a rewilding project that blends sustainable agriculture with ecotourism, with charming accommodation added as a base to explore this rejuvenated landscape at the edge of the Mara where wildlife flourishes once more.

There are twin and double banda tents on the river plus canvas fronted suites and a three-bedroom cottage ideal for families and groups.

Community & Culture

Conservation lives hand in hand with ecotourism and community development. All guests that stay with us contribute to the Enonkishu Conservancy can not only enjoy a fantastic safari but also get involved in conservation and community development projects.

The lodge and the owners' foundation, Futures in the Wild, have developed and support a number of projects such as women’s empowerment and education program, improving the quality of clean water and healthcare services for the local communities and developing schools in the area.


Tarquin and Lippa Wood started the Enonkishu Conservancy in 2009 and began ecotourism enterprises in the region in 2013, having previously been involved in intensive agriculture. The conservation in this region is a story of hope, an exciting rewilding project where areas that previously had very little wildlife, are now teeming with game and biodiversity is flourishing. Every guest visiting is helping to conserve this fragile edge of the Mara Serengeti Ecosystem.

The local indigenous forests on the edges of the Mara rangelands include significant tracts of critically endangered forest which the lodge is working to conserve these habitats by partnering with the International Tree Foundation to create a reforestation program.

They also rangers for the protection of the area under conservation and are helping to create space for people, livestock and wildlife through planned grazing, predator-proof bomas and community training.


Firewood is sourced from a sustainable plantation and as much produce as possible is grown in the gardens or sourced locally.
