Is the Encounter Mara for Me?
Situated on the edge of the savannah under the shade of acacia trees, Encounter Mara is a 10-tent camp within the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, bordering the famed Masai Mara reserve in southwest Kenya.
The camp is designed to be as open as possible, so you can take in the sights and sounds of the Mara during meals or afternoon siestas. From the outdoor viewing deck, watch lions visiting the nearby saltlick, and see gazelles and giraffes stroll right past the fence. Mornings are greeted by a chorus of birdsong. After dark, you might hear lions roaring or hyenas whooping.
The camp is ideal for families with younger children, as it is fenced and allows for running around in front of the main communal area. It is possible to enjoy a nature walk to the hide.
