Mutamaiyu House

A luxury private villa offering endless views towards Mt. Kenya and across the Laikipia expanse. This property can only be booked on an ‘exclusive use’ basis for a maximum of six guests.


Perched on a panoramic clifftop, on the northern end of the iconic Laikipia plateau, sits Mutamaiyu House; a beautiful private home offering magnificent views across a 49,000 acre working ranch and wildlife conservancy. This is the exclusive home of the Hahn family, the owners of Mugie Conservancy, within which the property is located.

Game drives are on Mugie, a pristine wilderness that is actively protecting natural habitats for some of Kenya’s key endemic species whose populations are all ‘at risk’. Guests can enjoy sightings of The Mugie Five; a small collection of northern rangeland animals that cannot be seen at any of our other properties, in total privacy and seclusion.

A main house comprises a grand dining room, spacious lounge area with a roaring log fire in the evenings and one en-suite bedroom. Separate to the main house are two self-contained suites and and a pool house with a large veranda.

Mutamaiyu House offers a diverse range of activities, in particular a ‘behind the scenes’ safari experience whereby guests can observe vital conservation work such as lion tracking and visits to the anti poaching unit to meet the bloodhounds and their handlers.

Blending into the rock-hewn hillside and surrounded by ancient twisted olive trees, Mutamaiyu House could easily be described as ‘Heaven on Earth’.

Please note that Mutamaiyu House can only be booked on an exclusive use basis, for a maximum of six guests. The minimum age for children at Mutamaiyu is eight years old.
