I can't find enough superlatives to rate this accommodation and attraction.
The Tented Safari Camp, the Safari Drives, the excellent Food, the Hospitality, the Staff, the Management, the little incidentals, let alone the animals we "encountered" ... absolutely EVERYTHING was catered for and to perfection! I (along with my 7 companions) were thrilled with the accommodation and overwhelmingly enjoyed beyond description, our 2 night stay and 5 Safari Drives.
This group is a well deserved winner of the Trip Advsior Certificate of Excellence for 2013.
The attention to detail, the eco design of the Safari Tented Camp, the superb Safari Drives and friendly & knowledgeable guides, the Michelin hat worthy Chef, the more than fabulous accommodation, the Tented Lounge and Dining Room, the Sundowner drinks, the courtesy and warmth of ALL staff ... blew us away!
We are so grateful for the opportunity to experience the stunning Safari Tented Camp at Encounter Mara. Thankyou SO much to Chris, Sam and our guide "Dickson Sentura". You're a winner!
I guarantee you won't be disappointed if you book with this group - you will definitely have an absolutely fantastic experience.
