Encounter Mara was a fantastic experience; luxury accommodation, Michelin quality food, and brilliant guides (head and shoulders above the drivers on many safaris with their quite remarkable local knowledge). The conservancy clearly has a positive and sensitive relationship with locals, wildlife and tourists which means visitor numbers are low, vehicles at each siting are restricted, and animal numbers are high. Many highlights - the walking safari was fascinating, sundowners a real treat, the food, quality of our rent, and Moses unsurpassed knowledge. We also saw all the animals we could hope for. A real privilege.
